Charles Court Opera Beowulf

Charles Court Opera’s legendary panto returns to the King’s Head Theatre

Charles Court Opera’s legendary boutique panto returns to the King’s Head Theatre this November, with a fiery retelling of the medieval epic tale of Beowulf.

Beowulf: An Epic Panto promises a wickedly entertaining show packed with mammoth musical numbers, and led by a colossally talented cast including many CCO favourites. Beowulf, Grendel, Grendel’s mother and a maelstrom of other fantastical characters are brought to life by cast Matthew Kellett, Philip Lee, Emily Cairns, Jennie Jacobs, Julia Mariko Smith with Kirsty McLean as swing.

Their critically acclaimed ‘Snow White in the Seven Months of Lockdown’ received an OnComm award from the Offies, recognising exceptional Off West End theatre presented online. Now, after a (typically) resourceful move to digital, Charles Court Opera are back at the King’s Head Theatre with a live panto that will be like no other…

In ‘Beowulf: An Epic Panto’, a co-production with the King’s Head Theatre, join Beowulf, Grendel, Grendel’s mother and a maelstrom of other fantastical characters, for this completely unmissable show, packed with mammoth musical numbers, and led by a colossally talented cast including many CCO favourites.

Written and Directed by John Savournin, the show features Music, Lyrics, Musical Direction and Sound Design by David Eaton; Set and Costume Design by Stewart J Charlesworth with Associate Designer Elizabeth Greengrass; Lighting Design by Jo Palmer; and Choreography by David Hulston. 

From Adult Only performances through to Children’s Matinees, Charles Court Opera’s biggest and best pantomime yet is perfect for families, couples, groups of friends and office parties.  The production runs from 26 November 2021 until 8 January 2022 at the King’s Head Theatre, London.
