Lucy Kane to Star in DICK WHITTINGTON at the Wyvern Theatre, Dec 6-Jan 4
Her mother, Linda Lusardi, has performed on the Wyvern Theatre stage; Her father, Sam Kane, has performed on the Wyvern Theatre stage; and now it is the turn of Lucy Kane to step on to the stage of Swindon's number one entertainment venue in this year's magical pantomime adventure, Dick Whittington.
Lucy Kane explains "Seeing my parents on stage in Panto was one of the main reasons that I wanted to become a performer. It was so inspiring to see them do a job that they love and do an amazing job of it. I spent many years watching the show from the wings and it's a dream come true to be able to follow in their footsteps."
Sam Kane and Linda Lusardi met in pantomime and so it's unsurprising that daughter Lucy has caught the bug for the theatrical Christmas tradition. Lucy has been at stage school for the last six years and has performed in shows such as Annie, Cinderella, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and performed solo at The O2 Arena and The London Palladium.
Mum Linda said, "From before Lucy can remember she's been in a pantomime dressing room watching the mayhem unfold. When Lucy was only a toddler, we realised that she had an amazing singing voice, so we nurtured that and watched her talent grow. Sitting in the audience and watching her play a lead role this year will absolutely reduce us to tears of happiness and pride. She is an amazing talent and a beautiful, kind and pure hearted girl. We couldn't wish for a better place for Lucy to play her first professional leading role. The audiences at the Wyvern Theatre have always been warm, welcoming and lovely."
Lucy will play Alice Fitzwarren, the love interest of title character Dick Whittington. She will be joined on stage by Nigel Havers as King Rat and David Ashley as Sarah the Cook.
The Wyvern Theatre's dazzling production of Dick Whittington will be spectacularly brought to life with an abundance of comedy, sensational song and dance numbers, fabulous costumes and stunning sets plus, as audiences have come to expect from Swindon's number one pantomime, plenty of audience participation.
Lucy Kane will star as Alice Fitzwarren in Dick Whittington at the Wyvern Theatre from Sat 6 December - Sun 4 January. Book tickets today at swindontheatres.co.uk or by calling the Ticket Office on 01793 524 481.
