Belle of the Ball Brad Clapson Returns to South Hill Park Panto

August 10, 2017

Is it August already? Oh no, it isn’t!

South Hill Park proudly presents the 2017-2018 pantomime production of Beauty and the Beast, and Bracknell’s favourite showstopper Brad Clapson is back playing the part of the Good Fairy.

Brad graduated from the Brit School of Performing Arts in 2008 and has been performing at South Hill Park for many years. You may recognise him from recent productions of AnimAlphabet (Edinburgh Fringe & Wilde Theatre, 2017), Cinderella (Wilde Theatre, 2016-2017) and Ben Hur (Reading Rep, 2016). He is ecstatic to be returning to his favourite theatre, and spreading a bit of sparkle as the Good Fairy in Beauty and the Beast this year.

Praise for Brad came in thick and fast during Cinderella last year, including:

Lead by the humour and skill of Brad Clapson
The Stage

A special mention must go to Brad Clapson and Daniel Cane, who as the Ugly Sisters, pretty much stole every scene they appeared in
Maidenhead Advertiser

I loved Tatiana (Brad Clapson) and Octavia (Daniel Cane) – they were quite the comedic duo and worked together so well

The ugly sisters stole the show
