Book tickets for Potted Panto

We have special offers available on tickets for Potted Panto.

 

Potted PantoCBBC's Dan and Jeff condense seven classic pantomimes including Aladdin, Cinderella, Dick Whittington, Jack And The Beanstalk and Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs into 80 minutes - this Olivier Award nominated comedy is just the ticket if you can't decide which pantomime to see this Christmas. Returning to the Vaudeville Theatre, Potted Panto follows in the same vein as Dan and Jeff's previous hits, 'Potted Potter' and 'Potted Pirates'. The madcap pair put on "a show full of enjoyably terrible jokes, manic costume changes, buckets of poo and a spirit of anarchic goodwill," according to The Telegraph. And while "the endlessly bright Ant and Dec-style double act is a little wearing for anybody over the age of 10," there is "a strong skeleton and a genuine warmth... and a great piece of audience participation" that includes Cinderella in 3D, says The Guardian.
