Trump – The Panto!, written and directed by Stuart Saint, based on “a true story of alternative facts”, will get its world premiere at Leicester Square Theatre this December.
Taking its cue from everything from The Wizard of Oz to Into the Woods, Trump – The Panto! will feature a large cast of familiar fairytale characters, branded as outsiders and who are driven out of the magical woods overrun by global political overlords. Join them on a quest over that elusive Mexican Wall to the mystical land of Mar-A-LaLa-Go, seeking out the great and powerful TRUMP. But will they ever find acceptance? Is Kellyanne Conway really Sir Patrick Stewart in drag? And Who is actually pulling Trump’s strings?
Twelve years after making headlines with David Blunkett the Musical, about the tangled love lives of Labour Home Secretary David Blunkett and Spectator magazine publisher Kimberly Quinn, the same London producers are turning their satirical guns on the White House and US President Trump. Producer Martin Witts said:
“For the past 6 years we have produced adult pantomime, with the highly successful DICK! and SLEEPING BOOTY reinventing the format. Others have since followed us and now London’s festive line-up is crowded with similar shows. So for 2017 we have decided to go in an exciting new direction and send up the biggest politician on the planet – President Trump. Trump – the Panto! is a festive filthy frolic with a new and scintillating, satirical twist.”
Trump – The Panto! will play Leicester Square Theatre from 12 – 30 December. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
