Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Those seeking family entertainment can rejoice as the pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears is coming to the London Palladium for a one-month run. Starting December 7, children and parents can experience Goldilocks and the Three Bears theatre production, boasting a star-studded cast.
Theatre veterans bringing family-friendly entertainment
Paul Grady returns to the Palladium alongside other favourites, such as Nigel Havers, Paul Zerdin, Matt Baker, Gary Wilmot and Julian Clary. Last year, Palladium played host to the vastly popular and sold-out production, snow White, during the Christmas holiday season. Continuing this tradition, this year, another children’s fantasy tale has been adapted for the stage.
With astonishing stunts, a circus and mind-boggling special effects, the play promises to be just as entertaining for adults as it is for kids. Blending the show with comedy further fuels the holiday spirit, as you laugh out loud. To pull out all the stops, the production company has integrated special acts within the pantomime, including a performance by The Skating Medini, illusionist Phil Hitchcock, ‘Rola Bola’ from Germany Sascha Williams and Peter Pavlov, world-renowned stunt rider. Each act is carefully crafted and goes with the overall theme and story of the play. The range of talent that Goldilocks and the Three Bears theatre production boasts is one of the primary reasons for its popularity.
The simple, yet fantastic story
Betty Barnum and her daughter Goldilocks are struggling to run their circus due to the machinations of an evil circus owner. They are trying to keep Big Top from immeasurable damage. The play deals with whether the mother and daughter can regain control of their circus. It also emphasises how three bears change the duo’s fortune after joining the circus. Maintaining the pantomime spirit, the production includes some lovely tunes by Gary Hind.
The award-winning team behind the adaptation comprises of director Michael Harrison, choreographer Karen Bruce, set designer Ian Westbrook, etc.
