JONATHAN WILKES to return to Stoke's Regent Theatre panto following huge popular demand


The Regent Theatre’s biggest pantomime star and home-grown talent Jonathan Wilkes is returning to Stoke-on-Trent following huge popular demand after a year away.
Jonny is back with the sparkling pantomime favourite Cinderella and this year’s production promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

Also coming back to Stoke-on-Trent is First Family Entertainment, who are producing Cinderella. FFE are no strangers to The Regent Theatre having produced the smash hit productions of Mother Goose, Aladdin, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Dick Whittington and Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates.

The Regent Theatre’s pantomime has become a must-see Christmas tradition offering all the ingredients for the perfect panto - sensational songs, dazzling dance routines, plenty of audience participation and side-splitting comedy. 

Mike Keane, General Manager, The Regent Theatre said ‘We are thrilled to welcome Jonny back to Stoke-on-Trent and The Regent Theatre. Jonny knows the Stoke audiences better than anyone and we are delighted that he is coming back to entertain them this Christmas.’

First Family Entertainment said ‘We are delighted to be bringing Jonathan Wilkes back to the Regent Theatre. Jonny and Stoke go together like turkey and stuffing – Christmas just isn’t the same without them. We missed being in Stoke last Christmas and promise that this year’s offering is going to be better than ever before!’

Jonathan Wilkes said ‘It’s great to be coming home, I missed being here last year it just didn’t seem right without my Stoke friends and family. I’m gonna make sure that when you come and see this show, it will be the best pantomime you’ve seen. We’re coming back with a bang!’

Cinderella is at The Regent Theatre from Thursday 13 December – Friday 4 January. Tickets go on sale from today and are available in person at The Regent Theatre Box Office, by calling 0844 871 7649 or visiting
