Eric is thrilled to announce that he has been appointed Artistic Director at Imagine Theatre joining their head-office team in Coventry at the beginning of July 2021. Eric has been writing and directing for Imagine for a number of years, and he will further develop their broad range of talented writers and creative colleagues within his wider duties.
Best-known for his role as Coronation Street’s eccentric baker Diggory Compton, Eric Potts stars as Dame Nora Crumble - and will have you laughing your Christmas socks off.
Eric has appeared in and written numerous pantomimes over the last two decades, bringing his unique brand of comedy and showmanship, in an array of outrageous costumes much to audiences' delight.
The real star of the pantomime though is Eric Potts, who plays Widow Twankey – who is also the director and script writer. Potts’ is a naturally funny Dame who without much apparent effort can reduce an audience to hysterical laughter. His dazzling and hilarious version of Hello Dolly is a real comic tour-de-force and steals the show.
Most lovable perhaps was that of One-Round, played perfectly by Eric Potts, who constantly hasn't a clue what's going (or even what his fake name is) but is the most decent and kind of all the gang. I look forward to seeing the actor in two more productions at TBTL this year.
Les was brilliantly played by Eric Potts, who captured the hilarious sides of Ada, along with wig, hip flask and heaving bosom.
