‘Corrie’ star takes to stage in panto

‘CORONATION Street’ star Tupele Dorgu, who played factory lass Kelly in the popular TV show, is starring in this year’s pantomime at Mansfield’s Palace Theatre.

The soap star will play the Wicked Queen in the tale of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’.

“I’m really looking forward to the panto,” said Tupele. “Christmas is my favourite time of year and I’ve heard the Mansfield crowd is a very loyal one, so I hope that as many people as possible come along and enjoy it.

“Although the Wicked Queen is a mean character, I’m going to bring some humour to the role.”

The show opens tomorrow, December 1 and will run until January 6 with various morning, afternoon and evening performances available.
