Story Time with Mama G by Petite Pantos

Petite Pantos are coming to the Greater Manchester Fringe with a brand new show, for two performances only, on July 1st at 1pm and 2.30pm.  Come and join them in the heart of Manchester’s gay community for thirty minutes of stories with an LGBTQ+ twist.

Come and join Mama G for story time with a difference. Combining panto, drag and the traditional art of story-telling: Mama G will be sharing tales that celebrate being who you are and loving who you want. This thirty-minute performance is perfect for children aged 3+ and their families and well, anyone else who loves a tall tale and long legs!

Story Time with Mama G puts everyone's favourite panto character, the dame, centre stage.  Played by Robert Pearce, audiences will be meeting one of the finest dames in the country.  Robert has been a professional actor for thirteen years and i that time has appeared in twenty-five professional pantomimes.  He also writes and directs pantomimes and his scripts have been seen all over the globe.  As well as panto Robert has played Bungle in Rainbow Live, toured the country with Tommy Steele and memorably played a tree in a rural tour of Scotland.

"THIS IS WITTY STUFF WITH PEARCE FIRMLY PUTTING HIS FINGER ON THE WORLD’S CURRENT TOP STORIES AND TOPICS"

Petite Pantos is a theatre company that specialises in pantomimes with a social conscience.  They champion LGBTQ+ issues, feminism and positive representation of race and gender.  Pantomime is the one genre in British culture that communicates with every generation of the family and, no biggie, but Petite Pantos are hoping it can help them change the world.
