A REGULAR of the Nag's Head is coming all the way from Hooky Street for the Pavilion's panto spectacular.

The countdown to Christmas has begun, as the first cast members of Rhyl's annual pantomime are revealed.

Running from Wednesday, December 11 until New Years Eve, Tuesday December 31 this year's show is Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, and marks the 22nd pantomime staged with UK Productions.

The cast is headed up by Sue Holderness, best known for her turn in the beloved BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses as Marlene, the flirtatious wife of wisecracking snob Boycie

As well as also appearing with David Jason in Still Open All Hours, Holderness is a veteran of pantomime and will appear in the role of the Wicked Queen.

The story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of the most popular and well known.

The beautiful and kind-hearted princess Snow White charms every creature in the kingdom except one - her jealous stepmother, the Queen.

When the Magic Mirror proclaims Snow White the fairest one of all, she must flee into the forest, where she befriends the lovable seven dwarfs. But when the Queen tricks Snow White with an enchanted apple, only the magic of true love's kiss can save her.

There is a full supporting cast which includes two Denbighshire dance schools, The Gay Harris Dancers and The North Wales School of Dance.
