Magic of Panto


All Ages

Running Time:


‘Widow Twankey’ and ‘Wishy Washy’ are in a spin! They hear
rumours of a cancelled pantomime in Old Peking and can feel that their
Christmas ‘Mother Goose’ might well be ‘Sarah the Cook’(ed)!

Not on your ‘Nurse Nelly’ we say!

Join our intrepid cast as they get in a ‘Muddles’ and showcase a wonderful whirlwind tour of the panto world with magic, illusion, plenty of fun and all-round pantomime madness!

Can they cover every panto out there to save the day? Oh yes they can!

Don’t be ‘Idle Jack’, ‘Dame Trott’ along to The Leatherhead Theatre for a ‘Silly Billy’ time this December…

Leatherhead’s traditional pantomime mayhem may not be able to go ahead in its usual format during these strange times, but we wouldn't let that stop the show going on, would we? Oh no we wouldn't!

The panto team are back with a show written and directed by Tom Beard and JezO!

Join JezO (BGT 2020 magician, comedian and panto favourite), Dave Short (Top UK Dame) and the enchanting Emily-Grace Fox for all of the fun and madcap ingredients repackaged to meet the latest safety guidance – we promise to dazzle and delight the whole family.

The Magic of Panto packs a first class Christmas caper into a 70-minute pantomime show for a small (but perfectly formed) audience.

Just as you'd expect from LP Creatives and JezO Entertainments, who have been thrilling pantomime audiences at The Leatherhead Theatre for the last five years, a truly magical family production awaits!


JezO was born into a theatrical family and began entertaining at an early age as a magician. After studying Performing Arts he set up his own business as an entertainer and has enjoyed success ever since. 2020 saw JezO and his Father wow the judges on Britain’s Got Talent with their comedy magic and danger act.
A high energy performer with a natural flair for comedy and magic JezO has toured his own children’s show, JezO’s Magic and Laughter Show to theatres around the UK. He is also a panto favourite at the Theatre Royal, Margate where since 2015 he has played a variety of roles from Jack in Jack & the Bean Stalk and Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz to Wishee Washee in Aladdin.
Jez is a member of the prestigious Magic Circle and lectures at many magic clubs around the country on an aspect of magic he is passionate about – entertainment.
Jez hopes you are all well and safe and thanks you for supporting your local theatre in this very difficult time. Enjoy this different but just as funny “Magic of Panto”.

Emily-Grace Fox – Emily has worked professionally overseas for 4 years as a lead singer in a production cast performing in rock, pop and musical shows. She also performs in her own Lady Gaga tribute show.

Dave Short: Dave is one of the top UK dames and has been honing his skills since 1999. He also does stand up comedy, comedy magic and is a member of The Magic Circle, so anything could happen – and probably will!  Joking aside, Dave is pleased and proud to be able to bring a little bit of the ‘Magic of Pantomime’ to Leatherhead during these difficult times.
