Send in a quick video for you chance to be on the White Bear Theatre stage this Christmas


The first ever gay panto adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is coming to Kennington this Christmas – and they are looking for a Mr Darcy.

Think slapstick, think cock fights, cross dressing sisters and a hunk in trunks!

Pride and Prejudice the Gay Panto promises to be a bawdy affair, but do you think you could give the likes of Colin Firth, who  famously came on to our screens in the 1995 BBC adaption, a run for his money? Well here is your chance.

The panto is playing at the White Bear Theatre in Kennington from December  19 for eleven nights, through to January 4.

Adapted by Southwark News editor Kevin Quinn and produced by Bermondsey based theatre company Waste Not, they are in need of men.  As well as the lead there are openings for a Mr Bingley and a Mr Collins.

However, you will have to be quick to register an interest as the company is already busy rehearsing at the Old Vic Workrooms in Bermondsey.

Tickets are due to go a sell this week!!!
