CBBC's Dan and Jeff, the masterminds behind Potted Potter and Potted Pirates, turn their attentions to that much loved British institution, the pantomime.
Potted Panto crams seven much-loved pantomimes into one show. Dan and Jeff career through Cinderella in SD, dazzle with a Dick Whittington featuring Jeff as the Mayor of London and struggle to work out how two people can play seven dwarves and which of them will make the prettiest princess. From conventions and costume to heroes and villains, the dastardly double act explores all the elements of the art form we both love and loathe as a nation.
Former CBBC presenters Dan and Jeff have been staging their own comedy shows since 2006 when Potted Potter premiered in Edinburgh.

The Vaudeville Theatre is a West End theatre on The Strand in the City of Westminster. As the name suggests, the theatre held mostly vaudeville shows and musical revues in its early days. It opened in 1870 and was rebuilt twice, although each new building retained elements of the previous structure. The current building opened in 1926, and the capacity is now 690 seats. Rare thunder drum and lightning sheets, together with other early stage mechanisms survive in the theatre.
The Vaudeville Theatre is the third such building on the site, having been opened in 1870, substantially redesigned in 1891 and extensively improved in 1926. This tradition of attention to customer comfort means that today, while retaining its Victorian elegance, it is one of the few air-conditioned theatres in the West End.
