Seven classic pantomimes for the price of one!

Former CBBC presenters Dan and Jeff take a madcap ride through the best-loved panto stories in this 7th West End anniversary  production of Potted Panto

A companion to their smash-hit Harry Potter parody Potted Potter, this is their biggest festive production yet as Potted Panto hurtles on a madcap ride through the greatest stories and best-loved characters from Panto.

Our dastardly double act dash from rubbing Aladdin’s lamp to roaming the golden streets of Dick Whittington’s London. Searching for Cinderella’s lost slipper, they try to wake Sleeping Beauty before the giant climbs down Jack’s beanstalk to squash Snow White’s seven dwarves.

It’s all unmissable fun, whether you’re six or 106.

Potted Panto is booking from 17 December 2023 until 8 January 2023 at the Apollo Theatre, London.

Now a staple of the London pantomime season, Potted Panto is a mad cap dash through 7 classic pantomimes in 70 minutes. The fun-loving show is suitable for all age groups - although it is a kids shows for 6+ . “I’m delighted to bring Dan and Jeff’s wonderfully funny show ‘Potted Panto’ back to the West End, offering London’s families the chance to enjoy seven classic pantomime stories in 70 hilarious minutes.

‘Potted Panto’ moves Christmas run to Easter
The West End production of Potted Panto has announced rescheduled dates for their live 10th anniversary season following the closure of all London theatres from 16 December 2020. Potted Panto will now run at the Garrick Theatre over Easter from 1-18 April, reviving a once common tradition of pantomimes running from Christmas through to Easter. Ticket holders for the 26 cancelled Christmas performances will be contacted by their point of purchase with the option to exchange their tickets for the new dates or to receive a refund. Producer James Seabright said: “‘Potted Panto’ played just eight performances of its 10th anniversary season at the Garrick theatre to rapturous audiences and rave reviews, before the run had to be suspended following government guidance. This led to at least 26 performances being cancelled. Happily we have been able to agree new Easter holiday dates with Nimax Theatres and the show will return to the Garrick stage from 1 to 18 April, harking back to the pantomime tradition of running all the way from Christmas to Easter - although they didn’t have a pandemic-enforced closure in the middle back then!” The production will also be streamed online from 24 December to 10 January with further screenings from 12-24 January, which mirror the original live show schedule. Starring Daniel Clarkson, Jefferson Turner, with Jacob Jackson, Charlotte Payne, Potted Panto is a madcap ride through the biggest stories and best-loved characters from the wonderful world of British pantomime. Performances for the current West End season have been suspended until 9 January 2021, pending Government guidance.
