Birmingham Hippodrome’s very own Goldilocks Samantha Dorrance took a break from playing the title role in this year’s pantomime, Goldilocks and The Three Bears to help Brummie celebrity Chef Glynn Purnell decide which one of his specially prepared porridges was ‘just right’.
Michelin star chef Glynn prepared three delectable porridges for Samantha to try and whilst blueberry and syrup and orange and aromatics were worthy contenders, it was caramelised banana and chocolate that was declared the winner.
The UK’s biggest regional pantomime follows Dame Betty Barnum and her daughter Goldilocks, who are battling to save their Big Top circus from the Evil Ringmaster who is intent on stealing their three loveable bears and leaving them in ruin.
Samantha is joined in Goldilocks and the Three Bears by Jason Donovan as the Evil Ringmaster in his pantomime debut, Matt Slack as Ringmaster, Doreen Tipton as Doreen the Lion Tamer, Andrew Ryan as Dame Betty Barnum and Alexia McIntosh as Candy Floss.
The headline cast are joined by a spectacular line-up of circus acts including the magnificent magician Phil Hitchcock, awe-inspiring motorcycle act Peter Pavlov and The Globe of Speed, the Death-Defying Gemini Sisters and international circus artist Pierre Marchand.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears runs at Birmingham Hippodrome until Sunday 30 January 2022. To book tickets, visit birminghamhippodrome.com, or call on 0844 338 5000 (4.5p per minute plus your phone company’s access charge).
