Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Enter a world of wonder at Plymouth’s home of pantomime, as the Strictly sensational Brendan Cole, Double Olympic Champion Dame Kelly Holmes and Coronation Street star Alexandra Mardell join the circus in the magical Goldilocks and the Three Bears, coming to Theatre Royal Plymouth this Christmas.

Returning to his Plymouth roots, West End star Samuel Holmes joins the cast, alongside comedy ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, and renowned TV and stage comedian Adam C Booth.

For 4 weeks only, the theatre will be transformed into a sensational circus, where everything is possible, and anything could (and will) happen.

This festive extravaganza is packed with riotous comedy, extraordinary special effects and hair-raising stunts!

Goldilocks’ circus is under threat from an evil rival circus owner and, with the help of their madcap circus friends, they’re battling to rescue their Big Top from ruin. Will they succeed? All seems lost, until three brilliant bears join the gang…

Roll up, roll up to see panto join the circus, and be swept away by a pantomime spectacular that’s just right!

Disclaimer: Panto is a lot of fun, but sometimes it can be a little bit loud, and a little bit cheeky, with some jokes that only grown-ups will understand. Please bear this in mind if you are bringing anyone under the age of 5, or anyone with a nervous or more sensitive disposition.
