Victoria works her magic in star panto role

SUFFOLK-born Victoria Scott is getting ready to sing, act and whistle as she works her magic in one of the county’s biggest professional pantomimes.

The 25-year-old - who was born in Bury St Edmunds but has lived in Sudbury and currently in Ipswich - is starring as the fairest of them all in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Lowestoft’s Marina Theatre.

“I’m very excited to perform in one of Suffolk’s biggest professional pantomimes. As an Suffolk girl it’s going to be good to tread the boards of the Marina. Snow White is my favourite role and I can’t wait.”

Getting ready to sweep her off her feet is Hollyoaks heartbreaker Stefan Booth as the dashing Prince.

The critically acclaimed musical theatre performer also pounded the beat in The Bill and finished as runner-up in the ITV1 show Dancing on Ice.

Victoria was the lead female vocialist in Cromer’s seaside specials last year and just finished touring nationally with the show High School Rocks, singing songs from High School Musical, Hannah Montanna and Glee.

“I’ve always sung, I was classically trained from about nine and also used to act when I was a kid. This is my fourth panto and the third time I’ve played Snow White.”

Joining her and Stefan will be former Hi De Hi Yellow Coat Nikki Kelly as the Wicked Queen and former Big Breakfast and Richard and Judy reporter Mike “Squeaky” McClean as Snow White’s best friend Muddles.

“I haven’t met the cast yet but I’ve heard nice things about them all so I’m really looking forward to it. It’s lovely to be a bit closer to home so friends and family can come to watch me even more this year,” laughed the former London School of Musical Theatre graduate; whose parents and grandfather live just outside Hadleigh, near Ipswich.

The show, directed by Olivier Award winning Kenn Oldfield, runs at the Marina Theatre, Lowestoft, from December 11 to January 3.
