The full cast of the Liverpool Empire Christmas Panto, Peter Pan, has been announced
Liverpool’s Louis Emerick and X Factor finalist Niki Evans will be jumping aboard the Jolly Roger at Liverpool Empire this Christmas alongside previously announced stars Tony Maudsley, John Evans and Asa Elliott in an all-new spectacular production of Peter Pan from Saturday 7 December.
Best known and well-loved for his twelve year portrayal of Brookside’s Mick Johnson, Louis Emerick has been a mainstay on British television for the last three decades appearing on many of the nation’s best-loved programmes including Last of the Summer Wine, Casualty and appeared in the film Layer Cake opposite James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
Most recently Louis completed the UK tour of The Full Monty, which appeared at the Empire to critics’ and audiences’ delight in March of this year. Louis will swap the strip for a ship, and star as Neverland’s most evil pirate, the villainous Captain Hook.
Joining him as The Magical Mermaid will be X Factor and musical theatre star Niki Evans. Having begun her extensive singing career and signed to Pete Waterman’s record label at just 16 she also reached the semi-finals of The X Factor, mentored by Louis Walsh.
Niki has also appeared in various musicals across the UK and in London’s west end, including the iconic Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers, Miss Mason in Cool Rider, Paulette in Legally Blonde, and various pantomimes for producers Qdos Entertainment. Niki is currently starring up and down the country in the first ever tour of the hit west end musical Kinky Boots in the role of Trish.
Louis and Niki join Benidorm stars Tony Maudsley and Asa Elliott, and much-loved Empire funny man John Evans, back for a third consecutive year.
Packed to the crows-nest with laugh-out-loud comedy, spectacular special effects, music, action and, audiences shouldn’t leave it any longer to hook tickets to Liverpool’s high-flying pantomime adventure, Peter Pan, or they’ll be forced to walk the plank.
