Funny man G returns to the Redditch Palace for panto extravanganza

THE hilarious ‘G’ is to return to the Palace Theatre in Redditch to play Buttons in this year’s traditional Christmas pantomime extravaganza Cinderella.

G had audiences in stitches last season as Wishee Washee in the theatre’s record-breaking production of Aladdin which also starred Collabro’s Michael Auger and Strictly Come Dancing’s Robin Windsor.

With his quirky persona, quick-witted ad libs and flawless comedy vocal impressions he quickly won the hearts of Redditch audiences, both young and old.

Upholding the traditions of good old British variety, G has previously appeared on ITV’s ever-popular Britain’s Got Talent receiving ‘yeses’ from all four judges and, last year, starred in the world-renowned Cromer Pier Show, proving such a success with audiences and critics alike that he returns again this year for their summer season.

Panto producer Paul Holman said: “G was an instant hit with Redditch audiences last year and I am delighted that he will be back to share his infectious comedy once more as Cinderella’s loveable sidekick, Buttons.”

G joins Emmerdale’s Sapphire Elia who will star in the title role of Cinderella with more exciting casting announcements still to come.

This year’s production promises to be more magical than ever with spectacular special effects, dazzling costumes and scenery along with all the well-loved traditional elements of pantomime and, with G back on board, laughs-a-plenty are guaranteed.

Cinderella runs at Redditch Palace Theatre from Monday, December 9, 2019 to Sunday, January 5, 2020.

Tickets are on sale now and can be booked online at or via the box office on 01527 65203.
