    Goldilocks and the Three Bears pantomime to run at the London Palladium this Christmas

    All-new London Palladium pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears, which marks the venue's fourth consecutive Christmas panto, is set to open for previews in London's West End on 7 December 2019. The highly-anticipated show will run until 12 January 2020 and comes after the Palladium's highly successful, sell-out run of the Snow White pantomime last year. Tickets for the Goldilocks pantomime at the London Palladium are expected to be in high demand.

    Goldilocks and the Three Bears Palladium panto cast

    The Goldilocks and the Three Bears panto is set to star Julian Clary as The Good Ringmaster, Paul O'Grady as The Evil Ringmaster, Gary Wilmot as Dame Betty Barnum, Nigel Havers as Daddy Bear, and Paul Zerdin as Silly Billy. Matt Baker will portray Joe The Clown in his London Palladium pantomime debut. Paul O'Grady's role as The Evil Ringmaster marks his return to panto after he starred in 2016's The Wicked Stepmother.

    Also set to join the cast are Peter Pavlov and the Globe of Speed, the youngest stunt rider in Europe; Rola Bola Sascha Williams from Germany's Belli Family Circus; and Asia and Dylan Medini of The Skating Medini, who make up a high-speed roller-skating act from Italy.

    Further casting for the upcoming London Palladium panto production of Goldilocks and the Three Bears will be announced in due course.
