Yorkshire girl Felicity Skiera is gearing up for a giant of a role in this year’s panto at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax.

Felicity, who grew up in Nun Monkton, between Harrogate and York, is taking the role of Jack in the Imagine Theatre show ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.

She is delighted to be appearing in her home county at Christmas as it will give her the chance to spend time with her parents.

“It’s great to be playing the role of principal boy again. I’ve done it twice before - Sinbad in Dorset and Aladdin in touring panto. It’s fantastic fun and everyone involved in panto has a brilliant sense of humour.

“I’m very excited to be at the Victoria and I’ve heard the theatre is amazing.”

This year, as well as performing, Felicity has been turning her hand to other aspects of the performing arts industry.

“I’ve been doing a lot of writing this year, working on various screen plays and directing a lot of children’s theatre, which is brilliant.”

But away from panto, Felicity’s dream roles are in gritty crime dramas. Audiences will be able to see Felicity in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ from December 13 to January 4. To book contact the box office on 01422 351158.
