Audiences are invited to join Goldilocks this festive season who, with the help of the Three Bears, tries to save her Big Top from a rival circus owner!
David Tag is most well-known for his long-standing role as Sylver McQueen in award-winning Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks. Since 2018, the Manchester-born actor has graced our screens in one of the show’s central families and has been involved in a number of hard-hitting storylines covering a wide variety of current topics.
David Tag commented, “I had such a wonderful time playing The Ringmaster in this new Goldilocks panto at St Helens Theatre Royal, that when the opportunity came along to step back into the role this time at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre I just couldn’t say no. It was a fantastic experience and a real highlight seeing the audience reaction right there, in front of you – it’s instant and so uplifting. I look forward to seeing everyone this Christmas for circus fun and games in Liverpool.”
The creative team includes producer Chantelle Nolan, director Olivia Sloyan, musical supervisor Callum Clarke, choreography by Nazene Langfield, and written by Reece Sibbald.

Audiences totally embraced this new storyline with its exciting and fun circus theme – so we knew that we just had to bring it back. Now Liverpool audiences have the chance to enjoy this fantastic family panto at the most wonderful time of the year.”
