The Leader:

Francesca Goodridge and Daniel Lloyd, Associate Directors of Theatr Clwyd said: "We are delighted to be directing the legendary Theatr Clwyd pantomime this year.

"The two of us have so much love for the Clwyd panto and, to get to step off the stage and direct it is proof that dreams can come true in real life - and not just in fairy tales! This will be a brand-new experience for our audiences as the Big Top promises to deliver rockin’ panto on a scale we’ve never seen before - it’s going to be a treat!
