Producer Joe Purdy said "I'm absolutely delighted that we are bringing Summer Pantomime to Bolton after a great visit in March with 'Rapunzel', 'Jack and The Beanstalk' is my favourite pantomime story, I've always wanted to work with a 'Nolan' and Anne is just the most professional and dedicated person I have ever met! We've got such a strong talented cast, that are going to be joined on stage by over 40 local children throughout our visit. We have also chosen the local charity 'Fresh as a Daisy' to fundraise for during our production,
they are a non-profit group that provides monthly packs containing sanitary and personal hygiene products for vulnerable woman and girls in Bolton"

I am really pleased to be taking part and working with a new & young Production Company, Joseph Purdy Productions, it's so refreshing to see new talent coming through and keeping this great British institution of ours alive & growing.
She added: "Many years ago, I worked at the Albert Halls, Bolton with my sisters and it's so good to return to the theatre entertaining a new generation, I am really looking forward to the panto this summer, it's a wonderful opportunity to participate and develop pantomimes throughout the year and not only for the Christmas period.
