Roy Hudd is Mother Goose this Christmas at Wilton’s
Legendary performer and superlative dame, Roy Hudd is back at Wilton’s Music Hall this Christmas, for Panto season, with another family favourite written by Hudd and his wife, Debbie Flitcroft: Mother Goose
Offering just one of a long list of seasonal shows in London, this christmas, where better to get into the festive spirit than at Wilton’s Music Hall?
After making a spectacular Wilton’s debut last year with Dick Whittington, the same creative team are back, laden with glitz, goodies, baddies and laughs galore, with a few surprises along the way.
Mother Goose tells the story of a poor, ugly Dame who befriends a magical goose hoping its ability to lay golden eggs will make her rich and happy. Of course, nothing is ever simple, and chaos ensues as Mother Goose rises from rags to riches and right back again as good battles evil, with Virtue versus Vanity in an enchanting tale with a strong moral core – beauty and wealth cannot bring you happiness.
Theatre veteran Roy Hudd has been involved in more than fifty pantos and even met his wife, Debbie, who is directing this production of Mother Goose, on set many years ago.
Alongside Roy Hudd as the Dame, the wicked Gareth Davies plays Vanity, and the delightful Julia Sutton, Virtue.
Drawing on the spectacular Victorian surroundings, the set is inspired by the stunning building itself and provides a beautifully traditional backdrop for this charming yet side-splitting production. Expect spectacular song and dance, plenty of booing and hissing, uproarious laughter and fun for all the family as you warm up your vocal chords – all together now: HE’S BEHIND YOU!
