Potted Panto

Choose Dates & Book

Written by Daniel Clarkson, Jefferson Turner and Richard Hurst

Why see just one pantomime when you can see 7? 

A madcap ride through the biggest and best Panto’s!  All the beloved pantomime characters arrive on Reading Rep Theatre’s stage in this wonderfully absurd festive treat.

A 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! 

This might not be the traditional panto you think you’re looking for, but it’s the Panto you need! 

Featuring a bundle-load of laughter and fun for all the family, this is a great way to kick off the holidays! 

‘So silly it’s just one long joke… featuring a 3D journey to nowhere but tear-inducing laughter.’ The Guardian
