Returning to record-breaking venue
Jimmy Cricket is to return to the scene of his record-breaking pantomime.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs attracted sellout crowds – the biggest attendances ever for a panto at the Billingham Forum Theatre near Middlesbrough.
It consistently had excellent reviews from people who watched the show over the Christmas and New Year period.
Northern Irish funnyman Jimmy played the comedy role of Muddles in the festive production. Also in the cast was Emmerdale’s Kurtis Stacey (he plays Alex Moss in the soap) who featured in the role of the Wicked Henchman.
Jimmy liked the North East venue so much that he will bring his stand-up comedy show to the Forum Theatre on the afternoon of Sunday 6 April.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was clearly loved by people who went to see it, with many positive comments being posted on the social media website, Twitter.
In addition to those included in previous stories in the Cricket Times section of this website, here are some more plaudits for Jimmy and co.
