The production will begin performances at the London theatre from the 4th December.
It has been announced that the famous Tiller Girls will be joining the line up for Panto Land, joining the previously announced Donny Osmond, Julian Clary, Paul Zerdin, Nigel Havers, Gary Wilmot, Jac Yarrow and Sophie Isaacs. The cast is also set to include Australian speciality act Flame Oz.
Today’s Tiller Girls are known as a group of highly trained dancers with a repertoire that ranges from traditional high kicks, to jazz, tap and ballet all performed with split second precision and all are also accomplished singers. During the 1960’s and 1970’s they were known for their performances on Sunday Night At The London Palladium and originally launched by the creator of precision dance John Tiller as far back as 1890. By 1920, John Tiller had eighty troupes performing all over the world from Broadway to Paris, as well as in Hollywood movies for Busby Berkeley.
Created by Michael Harrison, Panto Land will bring to life the London Palladium’s panto past, while ensuring that there are also plenty of surprises along the way.
As well as being directed and produced by Michael Harrison, the creative team behind the production includes: choreographer Karen Bruce, set designer Ian Westbrook, costume designer Hugh Durrant, lighting designer Ben Cracknell, sound designer Gareth Owen and composer and orchestrator Gary Hind.
