Direct from the UK, Mama G is bringing her brand new show exclusively to Cumberland! Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow combines pantomime, drag and the traditional art of storytelling to spread the message of being who you are and loving who you want. Mama G’s Story Time Roadshow aims to introduce the themes of equality and self acceptance to young audiences and their families. The performance is a fabulous mix of stories, songs and audience participation. There may even be a twerking competition – so get practicing!
Since starting her unique brand of storytelling, in the UK, Mama G has been taken to the hearts of audiences around the country. Appearances at London cultural hubs such as the Southbank Centre and Unicorn Theatre have ensured her popularity continues to increase and she is in demand for Pride and arts festivals, as well as libraries, bookshops, cafes and schools.
Mama G was created by popular British actor and pantomime dame Robert Pearce to showcase the ethos of his company Petite Pantos. Robert has been a professional actor for thirteen years and in that time has appeared in twenty-five professional pantomimes. He also writes and directs pantomimes and his scripts have been seen all over the globe. As well as panto Robert has toured the UK alongside showbiz legend Tommy Steele, worked with internationally renowned musical theatre writers Stiles and Drew and memorably played a tree in a rural tour of Scotland. His theatre company, Petite Pantos, produces pantomime with a social conscience. They champion LGBTQ+ issues, feminism and positive representation of race and gender and aim to open up a dialogue on these subjects that every generation can engage with.
