Guildford Fringe Theatre Company’s Adult Panto cast is announced but producers are still looking for its leading member.

Throbbin’ Hood & His Little John

The Back Room of The Star Inn, 24 November 2022 – 7 January 2023

Guildford Fringe Theatre Company’s popular Adult Panto returns to the Back Room of the Star Inn in Guildford this winter, with Throbbin’ Hood & His Little John playing from 24 November 2022 – 7 January 2023.  The show’s producers are delighted to announce most of the cast – but the hunt is still on for its leading member.

Co-producer Charlotte Wyschna said: “We have the most wonderful group of actors lined up for this year’s Adult Panto but there is still time for one Panto leading boy to get involved! We never rush our casting as it is the most important element. Our script by James Chalmers is hilarious but it is nothing without the right group of actors to bring it to life. I personally cannot wait to welcome audiences in this year, my first as Managing Director of Guildford Fringe, as well as Co-producer of the Panto.”

The confirmed cast is (with character names edited, to be revealed in full glory at the show):

Fred Broom as Madam Suki Widow Twankey in Aladdin (Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch & Gandey’s Circus of Aladdin); Major General in The Pirates of Penzance (Union Theatre and Wilton’s Music Hall); Lucy Fur in Hot Stuff (Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch); Cliff Michelmore in The Crown (Netflix); Bunny Sinclair in Nativity Rocks! This Ain’t No Silent Night).
