Mother Goose in London


Ian McKellen, John Bishop

Running an Animal Sanctuary for waifs and strays, Mother Goose and her husband live inside an abandoned Debenhams store. But when a magical goose turns up, things change. Feathers are ruffled, magic happens, and a fresh story from the imaginations of Jonathan Harvey, directed by Cal McCrystal, is revealed. It’s hilarious, whatever your age. This is panto at its best.

What's the plot of Mother Goose?

Jonathan Harvey has created content for Coronation Street and the crazy TV comedy Gimme, Gimme, Gimme. Cal McCrystal is known and loved as the nation’s funniest director. Ian McKellen, John Bishop and Mel Giedroyc star as Mother Goose, her husband, and the Goose itself. Ambassador Theatre Group Productions proudly presents the UK and Ireland tour of Mother Goose, landing in the West End’s Duke of York's Theatre from 15th December 2022 to 29th January 2023. After that it’ll embark on a tour of the UK and Ireland.

The story? Mother Goose and her husband Vic live inside an old Debenhams store. They run an Animal Sanctuary, good people who live a simple life. Then a goose flies in and everything changes. How will fame and fortune affect them? The show is full of fun including deep-voiced fairies, tap dancing puppets, and all the mayhem you love best in a great British pantomime. Expect the unexpected! No wonder Mother Goose theatre tickets are set to sell like mad.

The show will star Oscar Conlon-Morrey as Jack, Simbi Akande as Jill, Sharon Ballard as Evil Fairy Malignia and Karen Mavundukure as Good Fairy Encanta. The cast also includes Adam Brown, Gabriel Fleary, Richard Leeming and Genevieve Nicole. The rest of the cast will be to be announced soon.

Mother Goose is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, Hunter Arnold, Seaview, Wessex Grove, Richard Winkler & Dawn Smalberg, Caiola Productions and George Waud for Groove International. The Set and Costume design are by Liz Ascroft. The amazing dance is choreography by Lizzi Gee and the lighting design is by by Prema Mehta. Sound design comes from Ben Harrison and Puppet Design and Creation by Chris Barlow. The casting is by Anne Vosser and the Production Manager is Ben Arkell.

Delightful evening in cold January weather

Very entertaining. Paid spectators in back 2 rows of upper circle were rowdy and disruptive, we would have enjopyed the show much more without them.

First Show of a short run - the best kind of anti - not shiny and glitzy in a giant there but homely and fun in an intimate theatre - even at the back in the cheap seat yous eat the faces and eyes well. A cope of little glitches but McKellern and Bishop are such pros they just carry on. Especially lies the spoof of Camilla Parker-Bowles /Queen Consort in tweeds with big gin -breakdancing... dry revealing. Cracks at certain piggy porkers and Truss disasters, excellent singers and nice sets.....all the ingredients. We all enjoyed it HUGELY.
