Theatre Britain - Mother Goose

Theatre Britain presents  MOTHER GOOSE  by Jackie Mellor-Guin


Theatre Britain’s 2012 holiday show is Mother Goose, opening December 1 and running through December 30 at The Cox Building Playhouse in Plano.

Written by Jackie Mellor-Guin, Mother Goose is another of our world premiere pantos, a traditional tale told in the style of melodrama. The audience is encouraged to cheer for the good guys, boo and hiss the villain and to join in with the characters on stage. It’s a family-friendly show that works on two levels so there is plenty for adults to enjoy as well.

Poor old Mother Goose! She is about to be turned out of her house because she can’t pay the mortgage. All looks bleak until along comes Lucy the Goosy who lays golden eggs and saves the day. Mother Goose is now rich and she shares her good fortune with the whole town. But behind the scenes a good Fairy and a dastardly Demon are fighting over her fate. Will Mother Goose be content with what she has or can the Demon tempt her into betraying her friends and her principles? A classic tale of Good versus Evil, panto-style!

Directed by Sue Birch, Mother Goose features Audrey Ahern, Shannon Atkinson, Trey Churchill, Whitney LaTrice Coulter, Lauren Gao, Katya Jonas, Alec Kirazian, Nancy Lamb, Jennifer Middleton, Jen Rainey, Nathaniel P Reid and Octavia Y Thomas.
