Immersion Theatre – Rapunzel Cast Announcement

/

Immersion Theatre announce the cast for their brand-new pantomimic adaptation of the famous hairy fairy tale, Rapunzel!

Charlotte Fishwick returns to the Immersion Theatre team in the title role after appearing in Alice in Wonderland last Summer and as Wendy in Prime Pantomimes’ inaugural production of Peter Pan. She will be joined by Luke Haywood as the charming and energetic Prince Arthur who also joins the team for a second time having appeared in the title role in Aladdin at Harrow Arts Centre last Christmas. Every show needs a villain and the sassy, vain, and downright dangerous Gothel will be played by Kluane Saunders.

Completing the cast will be Michael Lapham as Chester the Jester, Victoria-Louise Currie, and Harry Sykes, both of whom will undertake a number of roles.

Rapunzel is written and directed by Immersion Theatre’s Artistic Director, James Tobias, with music by Robert Gathercole, choreography by Anthony Whiteman, Musical Direction by Henry Brennan, Set Design by PJ McEvoy, and Lighting Design by Jonathan Simpson.
