Wayne Miller will once more be performing as his alter-ego in Peter and Petula’s Slumberland Singalong.

The show will take to the stage of he Westovians on February 9 and 10 with performances at 1pm and 3:30pm.

He will be joined by Sunderland actress Sarah Boulter who will play his feisty sister.

The story will centre on the pair as they host a sleepover, however, only everything gets in the way of sleep from pillow fights to spooky monsters and singalongs.

The show has been created with under-sevens in mind.

Wayne, who is also known as Santa’s Naughty Elf, said: “We have designed our new show to work perfectly for the under-sevens, packing it full of silliness, interactive fun and lots of clowning around.

“We know it’s something families look for, something to hold the little one’s attention and not be too long for them.

“Having created a Christmas show for this age group for the past 10 years, I know it’s a piece of theatre that will make the young and old smile equally as much.”

Wayne, who wrote the show, added: “I’ve known Sarah for a long time and we have shared a stage on many an occasion, but none as special as in Naughty Elf.

“We have a great chemistry performing together, which makes any show that much easier and this is something I can’t wait to get back to.

“She is an extremely special actor and always brings that certain something to knock anyone’s socks off!”
