About the show

The London Palladium and Qdos Entertainment follow up their Olivier Award-nominated Snow White with a festive treat this Winter, as Goldilocks and the Three Bears rolls into town. Turning a familiar fairy-tale on its head, the show runs from 7 December.

Based on the traditional children’s tale about a young girl’s mischief in Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear’s home, the show promises a spectacular makeover. Follow Dame Betty Barnum and her daughter Goldilocks as they fight to save their circus from the rivalry of an evil ringmaster, with the help of their fantastical and eccentric friends. But will they succeed? After all, anything can happen in the Big Top, including the arrival of three brilliant bears who might just save the day...

Goldilocks and the Three Bears features a cast of pantomime regulars, including Julian Clary and Paul O’Grady as the good and bad ringmasters. Matt Baker (The One Show) makes his panto debut as Joey the Clown, alongside other returning cast Paul Zerdin as Silly Billy, Gary Wilmot as Dame Betty Barnum, Nigel Havers as Daddy Bear, Janine Duvitski as Mummy Bear and Lauren Stroud as Baby Bear.

Goldilocks herself is played by Sophie Isaacs, who previously appeared in Heathers and Kinky Boots.

Expect plenty of dazzling acrobatic feats, as circus acts Denise Garcia-Sorta and Massimiliano Medini as the Skating Medinis; magician Phil Hitchcock; Sascha Williams' Rola Bola act (Britain's Got Talent) and Peter Pavlov's Globe of Death act all feature in the show.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is directed by Michael Harrison, whose previous London Palladium credits include Snow White (2018) starring Dawn French, and Dick Whittington (2017). Other creatives include choreographer Karen Bruce and set designer Ian Westbrook.

With plenty of laughs and acrobatic delights, Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium is just right for all the family. It runs for a strictly limited five-week season, from 7 December 2019.
