The Magic Bookmark

16 July 2023 @ 14:00 - 16:00

Audiences are invited to join everyone’s favourite pantomime dame and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Mama G on a brand new panto adventure for the whole family!

The evil Book Worm has decided that reading gives people too much knowledge, and makes all the books from Mama G’s library disappear. Before the world can turn to chaos, Mama G has to save the day by finding three books that will help make the world a better place. Of course, she can’t do it alone and that’s when she discovers the mysterious and wonderful Magic Bookmark…

Families are sure to love this storytelling show full of panto fun, interaction, song and dance, puppetry, and some of the finest picture books currently on the market!

The show is written in Mama G’s inimitable uplifting and interactive style, with original songs by award winning musical comedian Katie Pritchard. The Magic Bookmark is voiced by West End star Julie Yammanee (Bonnie and Clyde, Lazarus and Avenue Q.)

As a tool to promote the power of reading The Magic Bookmark will also include three mini story times from Mama G herself. The chosen books will explore Mama G’s ethos of being who you want and loving who you are and will be drawn from a list including You Need to Chill by Juno Dawson, The Frog’s Kiss by James Mayhew & Toto, and The Bear who had Nothing to Wear by Jeanne Willis.

Petite Pantos and Mama G, hope that the The Magic Bookmark will be a clarion call to people of all ages. To stand up for themselves. To stand up for each other. And to understand why both those stands can change the world. Pantomime is one of the few theatrical genres that is designed to communicate to people of all ages. This makes it perfect to open up conversations on difficult topics in fun and engaging ways. The Magic Bookmark will allow you to entertain, educate and support your community all in one go!
