Chris was featured in Liverpool Echo this week!


FOUR years at a desk in the nation’s most famous comprehensive, Grange Hill, must have given pantomime dame Chris Crookall some pointers on how to deal with rowdy kids.

Chris joins a cast which includes Shameless star Tina Malone as the Wicked Queen, ECHO columnist Pete Price, Leanne Campbell, comedy legend Micky Finn, Evita’s James Waud, and newcomer Lizzie Warburton as Snow White.
