About Us

Despite the difficulties facing theatre this year one man is single handily trying to keep the magic of Panto alive.

Sheffield comedian Tom Binns aka Hospital DJ Ivan Brackenbury who earlier in the year converted his van into the worlds first the pop up mobile comedy club has now written and produced  ‘Buttons – the one-man pantomime’ (He will also play Buttons)

Ten minutes into what should have been Cinderella, Buttons realises he’s on his own as the rest of the cast have been furloughed. (He missed the memo cause hadn’t bothered to go to the rehearsals).  The star-studded cast from the cancelled panto (kids will know them from CBBC) make a surprise appearance on video call but Buttons is left to carry the show.

Turns out Buttons has got a bit complacent of late and has lost the magic of Panto but with the help of his Fairy God Mentor, played by Bernie Clifton, he rediscovers the magic just in time for a happy ending.

In a case of life imitating art, Bernie Clifton has been mentoring Tom in real life and has even allowed him to do the Panto routines he was hoping to do himself this Christmas.

“This is a dream come true for me” says Binns “or it would be if only my dreams were this amazing, weird and specific.”

Performances are 1 hour, and are at 1500, 1700 and 1900.  The 1900 performance includes a glass of fizz and canapes, to help you see the New Year in, a few hours early!

 

The Palace Theatre is set in the heart of Paignton and is really has a community feel to it. The Theatre is proud to work with local community groups and projects to establish itself as a place of entertainment and learning for all.
