Goldilocks and the Three Bears

A brand new production of the Christmas Pantomine Goldilocks and the Three Bears in London featuring an all-star cast

The world-famous London Palladium will be transformed into a sensational circus this Christmas, where everything is possible and anything could (and will) happen. Dame Betty Barnum and her daughter Goldilocks' circus is under threat from an evil rival circus owner and, with the help of their madcap circus friends, they're battling to rescue their Big Top from ruin. Will they succeed? All seems lost, until three brilliant bears join the gang...

Once again the this year's Palladium pantomine promises to be an unmissable festive extravaganza featuring riotous comedy routines, extraordinary special effects, hair-raising stunts, international circus acts and an all-star cast.

The cast features Paul O'Grady as 'The Evil Ringmaster', Julian Clary as 'The Ringmaster', Nigel Havers as 'Daddy Bear', Janine Duvitski as 'Mummy Bear', Lauren Stroud as 'Baby Bear', Matt Baker as 'Joey the Clown', Gary Wilmot as 'Dame Betty Barnum', Paul Zerdin as 'Silly Billy', and Sophie Isaacs as 'Goldilocks', with Phil Hitchcock, Asia and Dylan Medini AKA 'The Skating Medini', Sascha Williams, Peter Pavlov, Charlotte Bazeley, James Bennet, Myles Brown, Samara Casteallo, Belle Kizzy Green, Sally Jane Hind, Steve Hutchinson, Ediz Ibrahim, Molly McGugan, Ella Nonini, Alexandra O'Reilly, Justin Thomas, Amy Thornton, Maxwell Trengrove, Charlotte Wilmott, and Luke Woollaston. Casting subject to change without notice. Directed by Michael Harrison with choreography by Karen Bruce, sets by Ian Westbrook, costumes by Hugh Durrant, lighting by Ben Cracknell, music by Gary Hind, and sound by Gareth Owen.
