Actress working near home

Naomi Slater stars in Santa Claus: The Musical this Christmas.

The show is at Worthing’s Pavilion Theatre from December 11 until January 5 2014.

Last year, Shoreham-based Naomi found herself working in Newark over the festive holidays.

This year, it will be a case of just nipping down the road to Worthing’s Pavilion Theatre where she’s playing Jenny in Santa Claus, The Musical, her fifth show for Paul Holman Associates.

“I have been Cinderella three times, and last year I was in Beauty and the Beast for them,” said Naomi. “I have got to know them fairly well, and I was lucky enough to be cast in this one.”

Naomi did panto in Worthing a couple of Christmases ago. She said: “I have always lived there. I used to go to Davison High School in Worthing, and I used to do lots of shows in the town, dance festivals at the Pavilion.”

Naomi’s other UK tours include Wheels on the Bus as Little Bo-Peep and Trombone; Mona Arizona in Fireman Sam; and Danni in The Little Big Club – Live In Concert.

Santa Claus, The Musical tickets are available from 01903 206206 or online at www.worthingtheatres.co.uk.
