‘Potted Panto’ to bring Christmas magic to Garrick Theatre
The 10th anniversary of Potted Panto will be staged in the West End throughout the Christmas and New Year season.
As part of Nimax Theatres’ commitment to reopen their West End theatres, Potted Panto will be performed at the Garrick Theatre this Christmas. The Olivier Award-nominated show will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year, with performances from Dec. 5, 2020 - Jan. 10, 2021.
Combining seven pantomime stories in 70 minutes, the show includes storylines from Aladdin, Dick Whittington, Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Potted Panto is the brainchild of Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, previously children’s television presenters.
Ahead of their Christmas season, Daniel Clarkson said: “So excited to be able to bring Pantomime to London this Christmas. Just a few Covid challenges to solve, how will we wake up Sleeping Beauty? How can the seven dwarves bubble together with the six-person rule? How will Jack be able to sell Daisy the cow when her bottom has to be socially distanced 1 metre away from her head!”
The Potted Panto cast is completed by Jacob Jackson and Charlotte Payne.
Potted Panto received its West End premiere at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2010, receiving an Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment.
