Bolton’s very own treasure Sir Ian McKellen will return to our region with Liverpool star comic John Bishop this Easter in a fun and whimsical production of Mother Goose. The panto show will run at The Lowry Salford from Wednesday 5th – Sunday 9th April, as part of a tour of UK cities.
The comedy was written by Coronation Street writer Jonathan Harvey, so the script is sure to be loved by us northerners, and promises to be a whole load of fun.
Mother Goose (McKellen) and her husband Vic (Bishop) run an Animal Sanctuary for waifs and strays and live a wholesome life inside an abandoned Debenhams. But when a goose flies in, will fame and fortune get the better of them? Will Ma’s feathers be seriously ruffled? Will Pa tell everyone to get stuffed? And is their fair life about to turn fowl?
Get ready for fairies with hefty vocal chords, puppets with tap dance qualifications and impeccably constructed mayhem that will quack up the whole family. This hilarious family-friendly mother of all pantos is the ultimate theatrical feast full of fun, farce and more than a couple of surprises that will make you honk out loud.
Look out for the massive golden egg popping up around The Lowry nearer the time, just as it has in the other cities visited by Mother Goose. The show’s social media pages have you covered, so head over to get a sneak peek, along with Ian McKellen‘s, as he regularly posts real insights into the behind the scenes of the show (as well as fabulous frocks and makeup).
