POTTED PANTO, the spectacularly funny Olivier-nominated show, that crams seven pantomimes into just 80 minutes, is to return to the West End for a fourth festive season of silliness.
Starring former CBBC TV presenters Dan and Jeff (aka Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner) – hot on the heels of their world tour of Potted Potter – POTTED PANTO will open at London’s Garrick Theatre on Saturday 10 December 2016 and play until Sunday 8 January 2017, with a press performance on Sunday 11 December. Daytime performances run variously at 11am, 1pm and 4pm.
Join Dan and Jeff as they career through Cinderella in 3D – including a cameo from the world’s first Fairy-Godchicken. They dazzle with a Dick Whittington featuring Jeff as the Mayor of London: blond, posh and receiving just the treatment he deserves (with a large mallet and a custard pie). An astonishing new take on Jeff’s favourite panto Aladdin gives the story a whole new twist, and Daisy the Cow from Jack and The Beanstalk gives a heart-rending turn as she’s led to market. Not to mention the full-scale versions of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty which see Dan and Jeff trying to work out not only how two people can play seven dwarves, but also which of them will make the prettiest princess.
This spectacular, silly and splendid show is a bargain busting evening to beat the pre-Christmas chill!
POTTED PANTO is written by Daniel Clarkson, Richard Hurst and Jefferson Turner and designed by Simon Scullion, with lighting by Tim Mascall and sound by Tom Lishman. It’s produced by James Seabright.
