Following a sell-out run at Brighton Theatre Royal, the producers of MOTHER GOOSE starring Ian McKellen as Mother Goose and John Bishop as Vic Goose, today announce the Rush Tickets scheme for the London run of the show at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
Every Thursday at midday, beginning this week, 80 stalls seats – priced at just £25 – will be released for shows during the following week. These ringfenced, accessibly priced seats will be exclusively available on LOVEtheatre.
You must sign up in advance to access these seats via www.lovetheatre.com/rushtickets. At midday on Thursday’s, you will then receive an email with a secret link. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. These tickets will sell quickly, and you will have a limited time to purchase them – so we recommend logging in early and having your card details ready.
You will be able to book up to 2 tickets for a performance the following week.
Mother Goose also stars Anna-Jane Casey as Cilla The Goose, Oscar Conlon-Morrey as Jack, Simbi Akande as Jill, Sharon Ballard as Good Fairy Encanta and Karen Mavundukure as Evil Fairy Malignia.

It is written by Jonathan Harvey (Coronation Street, Gimme Gimme Gimme) and directed by award-winning director Cal McCrystal. Set and Costume design is by Liz Ascroft, Choreography by Lizzi Gee, Lighting design by Prema Mehta, Sound design by Ben Harrison and Puppet Design and Creation by Chris Barlow. Casting is by Anne Vosser and the Production Manager is Ben Arkell.
Mother Goose (McKellen) and her husband Vic (Bishop) run an Animal Sanctuary for waifs and strays and live a wholesome life inside an abandoned Debenhams. But when a goose (Casey) flies in, will fame and fortune get the better of them?! Will Ma’s feathers be seriously ruffled? Will Pa tell everyone to get stuffed?! And is their fair life about to turn fowl? Get ready for fairies with hefty vocal chords, puppets with tap dance qualifications and impeccably constructed mayhem that will quack up the whole family. This hilarious family-friendly mother of all pantos is the ultimate theatrical feast full of fun, farce and more than a couple of surprises that will make you honk out loud.
Mother Goose is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, Hunter Arnold, Seaview, Wessex Grove, Richard Winkler & Dawn Smalberg, Caiola Productions and George Waud for Groove International.
The Londoner is the official hotel partner of Mother Goose.
