If daily life has you hankering for a touch of sequins, a ruffled feather boa and a lot of sparkly, judgement-free love, check out this trailer for Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow, then book your tickets to see Mama G in person.
Robert Pearce’s fabulous panto alter ego brings her show, which mixes pantomime, drag and storytelling, to the Lion & Unicorn Theatre from 21 to 26 May 2019.
Using a heady mix of songs, stories and audience participation, Mama G entertains audiences with her tales of tolerance, equality, being who you are and loving who you want. Audiences get to meet a host of characters, from confused unicorns and feuding fairies to champion twerkers and even Oprah!
Created by Pearce, Mama G is a regular at libraries, museums and festivals across the country and has also been seen on stage in Canada and on screen in the USA. Her show has been described as “A unique audience experience in which adults revert to children” by British Theatre Guide, while London Pub Theatres said: “Everyone needs a Mama G to show them how be brave, loving, considerate and open-minded human beings.”
Pearce is something of a panto veteran, having appeared in 25 professional pantomimes and also written and directed others. His company, Petite Pantos, produces Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow. When not starring in panto, Pearce has also starred opposite Tommy Steele in The Glenn Miller Story, played Bungle in Rainbow Live!, performed in Romeo And Juliet and appeared on Britain’s Got Talent.
With its all-embracing message, Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow is suitable for family and adult audiences. The run at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre will even include two, specially-trimmed 60-minute midweek matinees aimed exclusively at school groups.
Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow is part of an exciting spring season at the newly relaunched Lion & Unicorn Theatre that also includes the premiere of Tom Lodge’s drama about relationships and losing yourself, Like You Hate Me, Turn Point Theatre’s new play exploring grief, River in the Sky, and 90s-set tale of coping Hedgehog.
Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow runs at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre, 42-44 Gaisford St, Kentish Town, London NW5 2ED from 21 to 26 May 2019 with performances Tuesday to Saturday 7.30pm, matinees Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday 2pm, Sunday 5pm. Tickets are priced £10. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
