*PANTO ANNOUNCEMENT* Thom Bradford is King Rat




Thom is delighted to return home to the Octagon for what will be his fifth pantomime season in Yeovil! Last seen in 2020’s Nurse Nellie Saves Panto - Thom has since been busy performing on both land and sea. 

In 2021 Thom made his American Theatre debut by starring as Harold Hill alongside his wife Kathryn Nash in The Music Man at the Alhambra Theatre in Jacksonville, Florida. He followed this with a run at Surflight Theatre, New Jersey in their production of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. Thom then returned to Florida to take on his dream role - Dr Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Show. 

This year, Thom returned to Disney Cruise Line to sail on the Disney Wonder, sailing around Alaska and Hawaii - performing as The Duke of Weasleton and Oaken in Frozen amongst other famous Disney characters. 

After growing up performing in The Octagon Theatre, Thom is delighted to have the opportunity to perform in the final show in the theatre (as we know it) and cannot wait to see the Octagon again in its incredible new form! Thom is so happy that all the hard work the brilliant team at the Octagon have put into this expansion is paying off!

Let’s go out with a bang!
