A WELL-KNOWN Motherwell director and choreographer has been announced as the director of a leading panto in England.

Sheridan Nicol, of the Scottish School of Musical Theatre (SSoMT), will direct Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at the White Rock Theatre in Hastings, which this year stars Sid Owen, who played Ricky Butcher in Eastenders and Lucy Williamson, who has just returned from London’s West End playing Judy Garland.

Sheridan takes up her post with Qdos Productions, who also produce the John Barrowman panto at the SECC and the forthcoming West End production of The Bodyguard.

In addition to directing panto on the London circuit, Sheridan has also recently been named as the resident Jazz teacher at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland - formerly known as the RSAMD.
