Hackney Empire - Mother Goose

We were extremely excited to be invited back to another spectacular pantomime in The Hackney Empire to watch Mother Goose.

The adventure starts in Hackneywood where Mother Goose runs her beauty parlour, but kind hearted Mother Goose refuses to accept money for her services, so it’s not long before landlord Squire Purchase demands his over due rent.


Meanwhile the Demon Queen sets out persuade Mother Goose to change her caring ways with the promise of eternal beauty in return for her pet goose, will  Jack and Billy Goose along with their good friend Jill and with the magical help of Fairy Fame be able to help Mother Goose and save Hackneywood from the clutches from evil Demon Queen.

We absolutely loved every single minute of the show, the cast outstanding as was the entire show, an amazing array of songs choices and costumes, and no panto would be complete without a little audience participation which defiantly went down well.

Mother Goose stars Kat B (Jack and the Beanstalk and The Wiz, Hackney Empire) as Billy Goose, alongside Ruth Lynch (making her professional debut) as Priscilla the Goose, Holly Mallett (Andy and The Odd Socks, Glastonbury/UK Tour; Notflix: The Improvised Musical, Soho Theatre) as Jill Purchase, Tony Marshall (Casualty (1993 – 2021); Jitney, Old Vic/Leeds Playhouse) as Squire Purchase, Rebecca Parker (Cats, West End; Crazy For You, West End) as Demon Queen, Ope Sowande (Moulin Rouge, Piccadilly Theatre; The Lion King, International Tour) as Jack Goose, and Gemma Wardle (Les Miserables in Concert, Gielgud Theatre; Fame, Cambridge Theatre) as Fairy Fame.
