LIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS…OH NO IT ISN’T!…
Posted by Sammy Wright on 06 Sep 2023
The kids may have only just gone back to school… but Christmas (yes I said it!) is just 15 weeks away.
And on Tuesday The Epsom Playhouse announced the cast for this years pantomime…. The Wizard of Oz! I was lucky enough to attend the press call to meet the cast and director as they begin their journey to Oz (via the 217).
The Wizard Of Oz may not be your classic pantomime but following its recent musical run at The Palladium, it’s a show at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Spillers Pantomimes have been producing pantos for over 25 years, and Director Bev is excited to bring something new to Epsom for this 2023 season;
‘Join Dorothy as she begins her adventure into the wonderful land of Oz. Helped along the way by Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow. A show filled with excitement, laughter and the usual panto magic.
Journey with Dorothy as she remembers ‘There’s no place like home‘ in this year’s magical Christmas panto.’
The talented cast are all seasoned panto performers – some returning to the Playhouse for a second year in a row, and others travelling all the way from Scotland to help Dorothy on her way home! With theatrical training including the prestigious London Lamda Academy, it’s safe to say anyone lucky enough to see this show this year is in for a real treat.
