This one will get you into the Christmas spirit, guaranteed. I’m gearing up for the holidays with the hilarious duo of Dan & Jeff, another in my series of post-show talks for producer James Seabright.

Seven classic pantomimes in eighty hilarious minutes! This Christmas, Dan and Jeff (aka Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner) return for a fifth festive season of their Olivier-nominated Potted Panto, hot on the heels of their world tour of Harry Potter parody Potted Potter.

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

“The hordes of children fall around with delight at the mixture of sarcasm & slapstick” – The Times

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.

“Full of enjoyably terrible jokes, manic costume changes, buckets of poo & a spirit of anarchic goodwill” – Daily Telegraph

“A hoot of a show… Huge fun for five years & upwards” – Evening Standard

In addition to Potted Panto and Potted Potter, Dan and Jeff have had hits together with Potted Pirates and Potted SherlockPotted Panto was nominated for Best Entertainment Show at the Olivier Awards following its West End premiere in 2010. It’s directed by Richard Hurst.

After the 6pm performance on Sunday 8 December 2019, I’ll talk to Daniel Clarkson, Jefferson Turner and the Potted Panto creative team. Maybe we’ll get mince pies too?! Any questions? Join us!

After 2019 season productions of The Tempest, Lord of the Flies and Salome, I’m delighted to reunite with Lazarus Theatre to chair a series of post-show debates with the company for their 2020 residency at Greenwich Theatre: Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler and JM Barrie’s Peter Pan.
