HER mother, Linda Lusardi, has performed on the Wyvern Theatre stage; her father, Sam Kane, has performed on the Wyvern Theatre stage and now it is the turn of Lucy Kane to step on to the stage in this year’s magical pantomime adventure, Dick Whittington.

Lucy said: “Seeing my parents on stage in panto was one of the main reasons that I wanted to become a performer.

“It was so inspiring to see them do a job that they love and do an amazing job of it.

“I spent many years watching the show from the wings and it’s a dream come true to be able to follow in their footsteps.”

Lucy will play Alice Fitzwarren, the love interest of title character Dick Whittington. She will be joined on stage by Nigel Havers as King Rat and David Ashley as Sarah the Cook.

Lucy will star at the Wyvern from December 6 to January 4. Book tickets today at swindontheatres.co.uk or call the Ticket Office on 01793 524 481.
