Ian McKellen to star in Mother Goose at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

What a cast!

Bord Gáis Energy Theatre is egg-static to announce the pantomime Mother Goose will have its Irish premiere in Dublin next March.

Starring the award-winning actor Ian McKellen as Mother Goose, John Bishop as Vic Goose and Mel Giedroyc as the Goose, Mother Goose will be flying into Dublin from Wednesday 22 March until Sunday 26 March 2023.

 

Mother Goose (McKellen) and her husband Vic (Bishop) run an Animal Sanctuary for waifs and strays and live a wholesome life inside an abandoned Debenhams.

But when a goose (Giedroyc) flies in, will fame and fortune get the better of them?! Will Ma’s feathers be seriously ruffled?

Will Pa tell everyone to get stuffed?! And is their fair life about to turn fowl?
