The classic tale of a poor young man whose fortunes are transformed with the help of a magical talking cat is brought to spectacular life in our latest pantomime extravaganza - but can Puss really outwit the evil goblin and survive with any of his nine lives intact...?
With a razor-sharp script by Andrew Pollard, one of the country’s best-loved pantomime dames, and an astonishing musical theatre cast, PUSS IN BOOTS is already being tipped as the show to see this festive season. Add to that the unique talents of magic consultants Simply Told and bespoke puppetry from Gomito and The River People and you’re in for an unforgettable treat - but book now - tickets are disappearing fast!
this ‘Puss in Boots’ really is a cracker. Celeb-free, song-and-dance-heavy and full of heart, it’s carried on the winning ebullience of the cast and the wit of a cheeky yet double-entendre light script by Andrew Pollard who also doubles up – ooh er! – as Fruity Fifi: possibly the most generously endowed dame in London this season... Everyone is good, not least Kate Malyon as Petit Filou, but particular mention must go to Andonis Anthony who as the Goblin King delivers a turn of such dastardly deliciousness
kept a packed house laughing for well over two hours with japes, jests and jokes
As Sam and Princess Petit Filou, Luke Striffler and Kate Malyon continue Greenwich's strong lineage of stunning principal boys and girls with strong voices and stage presence. Their musical numbers buzz with electricity
Alim Jayda's Puss is a magnificent moggy with plenty of vim and verve… Andonis Anthony is superb as the snarling and snivelling villain, with his years of experience… making him one of the finest in the industry
[Andrew Pollard as Fruity Fifi]... his performance is incredible; the hilarious linchpin of the play. Great jokes are just the beginning; the musical numbers are a spectacle, with a cast full of brilliant singers and a pitch perfect band.
an absolute treat
On Friday 13th December 2013, following the evening performance of Puss in Boots, there will be a free post-show panel discussion on the art of pantomime in collaboration with the London Comedy Forum.
