After an Easter run in the West End earlier this year, Potted Panto returns to the Garrick Theatre for more Christmas fun. Potted Panto is at the Garrick Theatre on selected dates from 11 December - 9 January. 

Potted Panto combines stories from traditional, beloved pantomimes, including Aladdin, Dick Whittington and Cinderella. Told in 70 minutes, Potted Panto sees characters from pantomimes meet each other for the first time, in a show complete with pantomime tropes.

Writer and star Daniel Clarkson said: "We are so excited to be coming back to the Garrick with 'Potted Panto' this Christmas. After our 10th anniversary season was cut short last year, this years '10th plus one' promises to be the biggest and best yet! With seven different pantomimes in just one sitting, it's going to be bigger laughs, bigger doses of Christmas magic and bigger servings of custard pies than ever before!"

The cast includes Clarkson, Gary Trainor, Kevin Yates, Liam Jeavons, Charlotte Payne and Joseph Peters. The seasonal production will play on selected dates from 11 December - 9 January, with performances at 11:00am, 1:00pm or 4:00pm. Potted Panto will share the Garrick Theatre with The Drifters Girl starring Beverley Knight. The Drifters Girl tickets are on sale now.

Potted Panto is written by Clarkson, Jefferson Turner and Richard Hurst, and was first staged at the Vaudeville Theatre 11 years ago, earning an Olivier Award nomination. Hurst directs Potted Panto, with scenic and costume design is by Simon Scullion and Nicky Bunch, with lighting design by Tim Mascall and sound design by Tom Lishman.

Potted Panto is at the Garrick Theatre from 11 December - 9 January.
