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.
