Panto producers Enchanted Entertainment are on the lookout for male child actors aged 8-13 who live in the North East to star alongside an all-star cast, including Tyne Theatre comedy favourite Charlie Richmond, who is playing Mr Smee, and Karen The Mam’s Lewis Denny, who is back again as Dame in this year’s production.
