Mother Goose is making its way to the West End via Brighton’s beautiful Theatre Royal, with a star-studded cast to match. It’s in Brighton from 3rd to 11th December 2022, then flies to the capital for a season at the Duke of York's Theatre in London's West End, from 15th December 2022 to 9th January 2023. After that it’ll be winging its way around the UK and Ireland.
Who’s involved in Mother Goose?
Mother Goose and her husband Vic run an Animal Sanctuary inside an abandoned shop, an old Debenhams. But when a goose flies in, will fame and fortune change them? Clod-hopping fairies, tap dancing puppets and loads of crazy chaos follow in a hilarious family-friendly panto fresh for 2022, a very silly farce that’ll see you laughing out loud. Great fun for fun-lovers of every age.
