Ray joins the popular local funny guy Steve Walls, who returns to the Playhouse for his eighth year in panto, playing the part of Buttons.

Producer Gary Telfer said: “This year is going to be our biggest and best year ever and we are thrilled to have signed such a high-quality performer as Ray Quinn. Ray is extremely popular, as well as being a fantastic performer; he has performed in many musicals up and down the country, including Grease in London’s West End.”

Blue Genie Entertainment will be raising money for Blyth-based Darcey’s Dream charity, which provides support to grieving families who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death syndrome, illness, infection, accident, or terminal illness, from babies to teenagers.
