Star of this Year’s Panto Gets Her Own Show
…And the Cow Jumped Over the Moon
South Shields Customs House
Wednesday 22nd to Friday 24th February 2017
Doddington The Cow, star of this year’s Customs House pantomime, will take centre stage in her own show this year.
The loveable dancing cow, who is currently stealing the show in Jack and the Beanstalk, will star in …And the Cow Jumped Over the Moon during February Half Term.
David John Hopper as Arbuthnot,
Doddington the Cow and
Luke Maddison as Jack
And she’ll be joined on stage by Luke Maddison and David John Hopper who will reprise their panto roles as Jack and Arbuthnot.
Customs House executive director Ray Spencer, who has written the show, said: “When we saw Doddington for the first time we knew we had to bring her back for the February Half Term show. It’s the fourth year in a row we’ve done it following on from The Girl and the Unicorn, The Three Little Pig and The Rabbit’s Tail and we know this one will be another success.
“Doddington has been such a hit with our audiences and we’re sure the little ones will love this specially-written show and we’re thrilled we’ve managed to get Luke and David back for the show.”
…And the Cow Jumped Over the Moon is aimed at under sevens and follows Doddington and her dream of flying to the moon and back. Will she get her wish? Find out from Wednesday 22nd to Friday 24th February.
The show will include lots of songs you know and some you don’t and you can meet the cast and pose for photographs after the show.
