STAMP – South Tyneside Academy of Musical Performance to showcase a panto directed by a 15 year old.

South Tyneside based STAMP (South Tyneside Academy of Musical Performance) have announced their Christmas pantomime this year, which has been co-written and directed by ex Radio Shields DJ 15-year-old member Harvey Johnson. Harvey used to present Youth Voice on Radio Shields in 2020 – 2021, before being given his own weekly radio show later that year. Now, the talented performer is set to showcase his first ever panto he has co written.

South Tyneside Academy of Musical Performance (STAMP), are a performing arts group based on Frederick Street in South Shields.

The Musical performance group will be re-telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, which has been written by Harvey, alongside Daniel Shilling.

Harvey said of the plot: “When Snow White runs away from her wicked Stepmother and Pantoville, Dame Mona Lot and her idiotic son Notso Sharp set off on a mission to find her and bring her back. “Determined to remain the Fairest in the Land, The Evil Queen plots to put an end to Snow White, but fear-not, for Prince Harry and Fairy Fanny are ready to stand in and save the day!

He added “Every year we run for 5 performances and have a large number of audience members coming back year after year, and this year we are aiming for our biggest and best pantomime yet.”

The production will perform at Brinkburn CIO, which is located on Harton Lane in South Shields.

The opening night show will be on Wednesday, December 20th at 7pm, with further performances on Thursday, December 21st at 7pm, Friday, December 22nd at 7pm and Saturday, December 23rd at 2pm and 7pm. The pantomime is supported by Radio Shields.
