In a newly transformed Olivier theatre, Ned Bennett directs this wild new version of the classic tale which has been freshly updated for 2020 by Jude Christian and Cariad Lloyd.
This hilarious and heartfelt panto is packed with the cheekiest of jokes, the chattiest of animals, the awesomest of songs and the messiest of silliness.
Initial casting includes Dickie Beau, Amy Booth-Steel, Lawrence Hodgson-Mullings, Georgina Onuorah, and Cleve September.
In a season when many UK theatres have been forced to postpone their pantomimes, help us to celebrate its place at the heart of British theatre.
Join in the fun and create your own theatre adventures at home. Design a costume, make a prop and perform a scene.
From Monday 11 January for two weeks, the National Theatre are going to make the Panto available for free to some schools across the country via their National Theatre at Home platform. Interested? Sign up for free here before Tuesday 5 January 2021.
