Previews from 5th December, opens 6th December 2020. Ends 10th January 2021.

Double Olivier nominees (and former CBBC TV presenters) Dan and Jeff return for a 10th anniversary festive season of ‘Potted Panto’, hot on the heels of their world tour and Las Vegas residency of Harry Potter parody ‘Potted Potter’.

In a madcap ride through the biggest stories and best-loved characters from the wonderful world of pantomime, our dastardly double act dash from rubbing Aladdin’s lamp to roaming the golden streets of Dick Whittington’s London and making sure that Cinderella gets to the Ball. Not to mention the full-scale versions of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty which see Dan and Jeff trying to work out not only how two people can play 7 dwarves, but also which of them will make the prettiest princess!

‘Potted Panto’, which had its West End premiere at the Vaudeville in 2010 and was subsequently nominated for Best Entertainment in the Olivier Awards, is unmissable fun, whether you’re six or 106!

Cast: Daniel Clarkson, Jefferson Turner, with Jacob Jackson, Charlotte Payne.

Creative team: Director Richard Hurst, Set and Costume Design Simon Scullion and Nicky Bunch, Lighting Design Tim Mascall, Sound Design Tom Lishman and Leigh Davies, Producer James Seabright.

Theatres use "dynamic pricing." Seat prices change according to demand for a particular performance. Prices below were compiled as booking originally opened. Current prices are advised at time of enquiry.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.

For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, visit the theatre page (link at the top of this page) and click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).

On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.

Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.

Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.

Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

With most seats at a single price, it is worth choosing to be near the front or - with children - in seats that give them a good view of the stage. In the latter case, front dress or upper circle seats are worth considering. Remember that in the upper circle the "green" rated seats have extra legroom, which is worth thinking about even if the view isn't as good.

The monkey advises checking performance times on your tickets and that performances are happening as scheduled, before travelling.
