MS Panto, but not as
 you know it, this
Christmas UU
A Politico-Panto with topical seasoning at Norwich
 Inspired by one of the most legendary heroes of all time, Robin Good: The Politico-Panto is panto’s sassy, smart-mouthed and irreverent cousin, providing sharp-
witted satire this Christmas.
Robin Good is a celebration of society
and how it’s becoming more open to different ways of looking at things. Robin is a young queer socialist vegan social
media influencer, who alongside Marion stands up against the newly created Minister for Greed & Division. With Dame Stratton Strawless and The Sheriff of Norwich also starring, expect much local humour and satirical references as our hero tries to stop Norfolk becoming a playground for the super-rich.
It features a brand new musical score from an exciting young composer, Max
“Robin is a young, queer, socialist, vegan, social media influencer, who alongside Marion stands up against the newly created Minister for Greed & Division.”
Gallagher plus an ensemble cast of brilliant actor-musicians who will play a huge range of different instruments live throughout the show. It is written by award-winning Norfolk playwright and Norwich Theatre Associate Artist, James McDermott (Time and Tide).
Norwich Theatre Chief Executive & Creative Director, Stephen Crocker said: “We create our Playhouse Christmas show to sit alongside our traditional Theatre Royal Pantomime as we love seeing how so many people plan a festive trip to the theatre as a special moment to come together with loved ones at Christmas.
“I am so excited about bringing this show - our ‘politico-Panto’ - to life with such an exhilarating group of creatives and providing a fresh, new and different source of festive fun and laughter. It is cheeky, irreverent and sharp-witted. It’s panto, but not as you know it!”
