Mama G returns for GM Fringe 2019

Mama G returns for GM Fringe 2019

MAMA G’S STORY TIME ROADSHOW

Created by popular panto dame Robert Pearce: Mama G has been telling stories about being who you are and loving who you want, to children and their families, since last year. She has spread her message all over the UK at libraries, theatres, museums and festivals, as well as making appearances in Canada (live on stage) and America (on screen.)

Mama G opened last year’s Greater Manchester Fringe and now she’s back with a bigger and better brand new show! Mama G's Story Time Roadshow combines pantomime, drag and the traditional art of storytelling and is a fabulous mix of stories, songs and audience participation. The show has already been on a short tour of the UK and was recently seen at London’s Lion and Unicorn Theatre, where it garnered five star reviews across the board.

All the stories told by Mama G are written by Robert Pearce and audiences will get to meet a whole host of fabulous characters: confused unicorns, feuding fairies, misunderstood popstars and of course… Oprah. There may even be a twerking competition - so get practicing!

“Mama G is the perfect host for these charming stories. She is sensationally endearing, sparkly and witty. The show is perfectly suited for all audiences and we as a family adored it.”

- The Spy in the Stalls

Robert has been a professional actor for thirteen years and in 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 toured the UK alongside showbiz legend Tommy Steele, worked with internationally renowned musical theatre writers Stiles and Drew and memorably played a tree in a rural tour of Scotland.

“I found myself on more than one occasion misty-eyed with just the sheer goodness of it all – nothing was cloying; it comes from an authentic place and I saw that connection in the eyes of the children.”
