How to get tickets for EastEnders and Strictly star James Bye's 2023 panto

EastEnders and Strictly star James Bye will be on stage this Christmas for a classic fairytale panto — and you can get tickets to see it live!

The actor, who plays Martin Fowler in the BBC One soap, has been cast as The Prince in the musical version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

Award-winning pantomime director Chris Nelson is at the helm of this song-filled version of Snow White, with former Family Fortunes presenter Andy Collins signed up to play Muddles the Court Jester.

Tickets are available right now for £13.00 (subject to a transaction fee of £3.80) for shows scheduled to run from Friday, December 1, 2023, through January 3, 2024.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be running a matinee and an evening performance for most of that month-long run, but be sure to check the event calendar for the full rundown.

Here's how producers describe the panto: "Star cast, barrels of laughter, stunning sets, dazzling costumes, spectacular dance and maybe, just maybe, a bad apple or two, make this a Christmas tradition for all the family.

"A traditional family pantomime full of audience participation and laughter."

This panto version of the classic fairytale follows its traditional story: an evil queen chases the beautiful Snow White to a forest cottage inhabited by seven dwarves.

However, the big twist is that the panto version is filled with contemporary hits remade for Snow White, including songs by Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars, among others.
