Brad Clapson Celebrates 10 Years of Pantomimes at South Hill Park!

December 10, 2018

 Our local Bracknell celebrity Brad Clapson has returned to wow, dazzle and entertain audiences in Dick Whittington And His Cat, at South Hill Park’s Wilde Theatre this festive season…

Local celebrity and Bracknell boy Brad Clapson is over the moon to be performing in his tenth South Hill Park pantomime Dick Whittington And His Cat (Fri 30 Nov 2018 – Sat 5 Jan 2019) as the fabulous Dame, Sally South Hill, the Sales Supervisor for the Sundry Supplies!

Since making his pantomime debut as  ‘Simple Simon’ in Dick Whittington, Brad’s pantomime journey has done a full circle as he returns to perform at South Hill Park’s Dick Whittington And His Cat ten pantomimes later! With a pantomime career spanning a decade, it’s no surprise that Brad has played a vast range of roles including ‘The Mirror’ in Snow White (2013), ‘Wishy Washy’ in Aladdin (2014), ‘The Ugly Sister’ in Cinderella (2016) and ‘Gabby the Good Fairie’ in Beauty and the Beast (2017).

Brad has become a staple part of pantomimes at South Hill Park’s Wilde Theatre and an all-round audience favourite every year, “I must make a special shout-out to the amazing Brad, he was why we chose to come back after seeing him previously.” – Mrs Smith, Audience Member.

Brad’s dazzling repertoire proceeds him so prepare yourself for laughing off your seat, sassyness and lots of sparkle! Brad says:

“I’ve been performing in South Hill Park productions since the age of 8 so I am extremely happy to be returning to my favourite theatre as Sally South Hill in South Hill Park’s 2018 pantomime Dick Whittington And His Cat. Christmas without being on the Wilde Theatre stage just wouldn’t be Christmas at all!”

Not only is Brad a talented performer and a creative in arts and theatre, he is also the co-founder and director of Omni Theatre, a buzzing theatre, events and PR company and co-founder of Artemis College, a full time free sixth form for 16 – 19 year old performers. His passion and contribution to local arts and performance is inspiring and engaging young people and non-theatre goers to visit the theatre and experience the arts.

South Hill Park Arts Centre offers a one of a kind pantomime, with Director of Beauty and the Beast (2017) and Cinderella (2016) Adam Stafford once more at the helm, a new script written by Joyce Branagh, and starring last year’s favourites ‘Belle’ and ‘Beast’ Faye Ellen and Matthew Houston respectively. Also, making his pantomime debut as the titular Dick Whittington is Michael Ayiotis (King Julien Madagascar, Charlie in Private Peaceful), in a production that will surprise, captivate and inspire families of all ages.
