Potted Panto comes to Southwark Playhouse for Christmas 2019

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THIS Christmas, Olivier Award nominated Potted Panto, starring Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, is coming to Southwark Playhouse’s Large space, where it will play from Thursday, December 5, 2019 to Saturday, January 11, 2020.

Clarkson and Turner return for a fifth festive season of Potted Panto, hot on the heels of their world tour of Harry Potter parody Potted Potter.

Seven classic pantomimes in eighty hilarious minutes!

In a madcap ride through the biggest stories and best-loved characters from the wonderful world of pantomime, our dastardly double act dash from rubbing Aladdin’s lamp to roaming the golden streets of Dick Whittington’s London and making sure that Cinderella gets to the ball. It’s all unmissable fun, whether you’re six or 106…

Written and performed by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, co-written and directed by Richard Hurst and with music composed by Phil Innes, Potted Panto has set design by Simon Scullion, costume design by Nicky Bunch and lighting design by Tim Mascall. Associate direction is by Hanna Berrigan.

Potted Panto is presented by James Seabright.
