Britain’s longest-running pantomime dame, Berwick Kaler, is to return for a 36th time at York Theatre Royal – as Old Mother Goose.

As the curtain came down on the latest epic – Aladdin And The Twankeys – on Sunday night (February 2) Berwick revealed he’d return in a brand new version of Old Mother Goose for Christmas 2014.

“Old Mother Goose is my favourite pantomime and I want to play it whilst I’m still young enough to play an Old Mother,” Berwick says.

“It will, of course, be the usual rubbish and I look forward to welcoming all my bairns back to join in again.’’

Full details of dates, times and price will be announced in due course.

Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, March 1, and the usual queues are expected to snap up the best tickets in person from the York Theatre Royal box office.
