Potted Panto



CBBC presenters Dan and Jeff bring yet another spectacularly silly potted production to the West End’s Garrick Theatre, for a fantastically festive season. Opening December 10th, Potted Panto sees the madcap pair cram seven of Britain’s best pantomimes into an absurd 80 minutes! Following the huge success of their previous productions, which have included Potted Pirates and Potted Sherlock, their latest offering is guaranteed to get you grinning.

Potted Panto sees Dan and Jeff recreate some Christmas favourites, including a 3D Cinderella starring the world’s first ever Fairy Godchicken, Dick Whittington and Jeff the London Mayor, Aladdin, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Watch as Dan and Jeff clash over who will make the prettiest princess, and giggle as they soon realise that they cannot possibly play all seven dwarves!

Directed by Richard Hurst, who was at the helm of the Off-Broadway Potted Potter, Potted Panto is the latest in the hit series. Both Potted Potter and Potted Pirates received Olivier Award-nominations, simply proving their smash-hit success! After several UK tours, the hugely funny show lands in London for a festive season.

For those who just cannot decide which pantomime to see… Why not see them all?
