Run time is 70 minutes (without an interval)
Enjoy an entertaining romp through 7 pantos in 70 minutes with Potted Panto tickets
Enjoy seven classic British pantomimes in 70 hilarious minutes when Potted Panto returns to the West End this Christmas! The festive family favourite, which has been entertaining audiences in London annually since 2010, is at the Apollo Theatre for another season of spectacularly silly fun.
Dash from Dick Whittington’s London to Cinderella’s ball, with a quick stop to ask the genie for three wishes thanks to Aladdin and his lamp – Potted Panto brings together some of the nation’s favourite fairy tales in one hilarious journey with CBBC’s Dan and Jeff. With Potted Panto, pantomime lovers needn’t worry about fitting five trips to the theatre into one week off at Christmas: jump onto this magic carpet ride of a show and enjoy the best of London’s panto tradition in one afternoon!
Potted Panto is the zany creation of former CBBC double-act and comedians Dan and Jeff (Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner), who also created Potted Potter, the Olivier Award-nominated comedic love-letter to Harry Potter. Dan and Jeff have brought Potted Panto back to the West End again and again since 2010, celebrating the best of dames, donkeys, “he’s behind you” and theatrical magic with their own brand of madcap humour thrown in for good measure.
Potted Panto is directed by Richard Hurst, with set design by Simon Scullion, lighting by Tim Mascall, costumes by Nicky Bunch and sound by Tom Lishman.
Guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the whole family, Potted Panto is a fantastic alternative panto experience to enjoy this Christmas. Don’t miss it at the Apollo Theatre from December 2022.
Potted Panto is recommended for ages 6+.
