Oh no it isn’t….
But it actually is.
Panto season is upon us…I for one am a huge fan of going to the theatre around Christmas, so I thought I would put together a little compilation of London shows that you might like to see!
Cinderella at The Old Vic
Panto at the Old Vic is one of London’s most cherished traditions. This year Stephen Fry has written the script for Cinderella and it looks to be a winner!
A Christmas Carol at the Noel Coward
One of my favourite Christmas stories, Jim Broadbent who you might recognise as Professor Horace Slughorn or Bridget Jones’ Dad is playing Ebenezer Scrooge, this is one you will not want to miss. Until the 30th January.
Elf the Musical at the Dominion
Now we all know the great Christmas film Elf, if you haven’t watched it shame on you! But now something even better has happened, they have turned it into a musical starring Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud and Will Ferrell, come on now kids, this will truly be sensational! Until 2nd January.
The Nutcracker on Ice at the Royal Albert Hall
It’s always been a dream of mine to go and see a proper Ballet. The Nutcracker on Ice would be the perfect Christmas experience with frosty scenes and some Royal Albert glamour. From December 28th to January 2nd. Get your tickets quick!
Peter Pan at the New Wimbledon Theatre
The New Wimbledon is always good fun at Christmas, often because they have a celebrity headlining the Panto, think Max Branning from Eastenders of Jo Brand. They haven’t made the annoucement yet for this year’s show but Peter Pan is an all-time favourite Disney movie of mine!
Snow White at Winterville in Victoria Park
Well if you were thinking about going to Winterville you may as well kill two birds with one stone and see this Snow White panto!
So there you go, lots to think about. Plus you could see many more different musicals and plays like Cats, The Book of Mormon, Matilda, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – anything your heart desires!
Merry Christmas! Xxx
