Mother Goose

An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Pantomime

Old Mother Goose has run out of money until a gift of a magical golden goose lays all her problems to rest … or so she thinks.

Old Mother Goose is suddenly richer than she could ever have imagined and money leads to happiness right? Tempted by the wicked Demon King to trade the magical goose for untold wealth, beauty and youth, she realises that perhaps happiness can’t be bought.

Join Coliseum regulars including Fine Time Fontayne as everybody’s favourite pantomime dame, alongside Richard J Fletcher, Justine Elizabeth Bailey and Andonis Anthony in this year’s solid-gold family panto. Featuring all the trimmings of the Coliseum’s annual award-winning Christmas show including, songs, slapstick and shouts of “it’s behind you!” this classic tale is one for all the family.
