Pantoland at the Palladium

Celebrating pantomime with Pantoland in London at the Palladium with an all-star cast

Following four consecutive annual Christmas pantomimes at the London Palladium from 2016 to 2019, this show, first presented here in 2020, celebrates the magic of pantomime in a specially devised variety-style show for a strictly limited Christmas season.

A celebration of pantomime devised and written by Michael Harrison, with Julian Clary, Gary Wilmot, and Paul Zerdin.

The cast for the Christmas 2021/22 season features Donny Osmond, Julian Clary, Gary Wilmot, Nigel Havers, Paul Zerdin, Jac Yarrow, and Sophie Isaacs, with world-famous Tiller Girls.

Directed by Michael Harrison, with choreography by Karen Bruce, sets by Ian Westbrook, costumes by Hugh Durrant, Mike Coltman, and Teresa Nalton, lighting by Ben Cracknell, music Gary Hind, and sound Gareth Owen.

Christmas pantomines presented here at the London Palladium in recent years include Cinderella (Christmas 2016), Dick Whittington (Christmas 2017), Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Christmas 2018), and Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Christmas 2019).
