Drag queen favourite Mary Mac is spending the festive season in the Midlands, playing the character of Dame Dolly in the Royal Spa Centre Leamington’s pantomime version of Snow White.


JP McCue, who dons the makeup, frock and wig to perform as Mary, made his panto debut at the venue back in 2012 and has become a firm favourite with Leamington’s Christmastime theatre-goers.

“I'm so excited to be returning to this fairytale in a brand new version for 2019 and even more thrilled to be playing Dame this time around,” says JP. “The Dame offers fantastic opportunities to be cheeky and cause a bit of mayhem, which is definitely one of my favourite hobbies - as anyone who’s seen my previous Spa Centre pantomimes will know!”


“It’s so special to me, coming back to Leamington year after year. The town really is my Christmas home, and I have so many wonderful memories of pantomime here. Most of my onstage memories are of things going wrong, as that really stays with you; from forgetting lines to falling over far too much - it's all part of the fun and makes each show exciting for everyone, audience and cast members alike. 

“The Spa Centre is a lovely, happy place to call home over the panto season. All the staff have always been so kind to me, and I still get butterflies in my belly walking into the building for the first time each season, even after seven years.” 


Snow White runs from Saturday 7 December to Sunday 5 January.
