John Barrowman 2011 Glasgow panto return
John Barrowman and The Krankies will join together to entertain the crowds at the SECC again this Christmas, it has been confirmed.
The 2011 panto has been on sale as Sleeping Beauty but this fairytale princess has since been swept away by prince charming after the panto was re-billed to Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates to suit the recently appointed leads.
Former Doctor Who star Barrowman and panto legends The Krankies made their debut as a trio on the SECC stage last year in Aladdin, entertaining thousand of panto-lovers over the cold Christmas period.
John will take on the role of Robinson while The Krankies play Captain Crusoe and Jimmy Crusoe, a combination Qdos Entertainment’s managing director Michael Harrison is delighted with.
“We are thrilled that John and The Krankies are returning to the SECC where they had such a fantastic run in Aladdin last Christmas.
“John’s showmanship together with the hilarious antics of Glasgow panto favourites The Krankies, combined with ground-breaking 3D, means that audiences are in for another spectacular SECC pantomime.”
Ben Goedegebuure, Director of Sales at the SECC added: “Aladdin was the first major pantomime to be staged at the SECC and we were delighted with its success.
“The news that John Barrowman and the Krankies will once again be taking to the stage at the Clyde Auditorium is brilliant.”
Tickets already purchased for Sleeping Beauty will now be valid for Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates. The panto begins on Saturday 17 December 2011 and runs until Saturday 7 January 2012 at the SECC Clyde Auditorium.
