Fresh from last week’s exciting live rounds of Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals, Wycombe Swan is delighted to announce magician and comedian Mandy Muden has joined the cast of this year’s panto and will star as The Magical Mirror in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, alongside Strictly star Brendan Cole from Friday 7 December.
The mind-reading semi-finalist, also known as Magic Mandy, was one of the first females to be granted membership to the Magic Circle in honour of her esteemed career wowing audiences internationally with her amazing routines and quick witted quips. Those skills have since made her a household name after appearing on ITV’s flagship talent show, Britain’s Got Talent.
On the show Mandy sailed through the early rounds of the competition, baffling the judges with her eccentric routines and delighting the arena audiences and those at home. Following her semi-final appearance last week Mandy won a standing ovation from the capacity crowd at the Hammersmith Apollo, and from all four judges, David Wallliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and the hard-to-please Simon Cowell who told her she reminded him of the late Tommy Cooper.
In addition to her stand-up, cabaret and cruising commitments, Mandy also appeared on BBC’s Dick and Dom’s Funny Business and as a mentor on Channel 4’s Faking It.
Mandy will play The Magical Mirror alongside Strictly Come Dancing’s former pro-dancer Brendan Cole as The Henchman, allowing her plenty of opportunities to impress panto-goers with her magic tricks and humour which will delight Wycombe Swan audiences in the production that promises sensational song and dance, laughter and audience participation.
Managing Director of Qdos Entertainment, the producers of the annual Wycombe Swan pantomime, Michael Harrison said: “I’m delighted Mandy has come on board to star in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, especially given how sensational she was on Britain’s Got Talent. We’re thrilled she’ll be able to showcase even more of her talents and delight audiences this Christmas with all of her amazing tricks and comedy.”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs runs from Friday 7 to Sunday 30 December. With tickets selling fast, audiences should book their tickets early, or they won’t be able to look themselves in the (magical) mirror.
