Additional casting will be announced.

Director Harrison said in a statement, “One of the highlights of my year is bringing together our magnificent London Palladium panto cast and preparing to stage our much-loved Christmas spectacular at London’s home of variety. I’m absolutely thrilled that Robin and Marion, two of the greatest lovers in history, will be played by the wonderful Jane McDonald and Palladium royalty Julian Clary. This is a love story like no other, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘Robin Hood’s Camp.'"

The upcoming production will also have set design by Mark Walters, costume design by Hugh Durrant, choreography by Karen Bruce, visual special effects by The Twins FX, lighting design by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Matt Peploe for Gareth Owen Sound, and composition and orchestrations by Gary Hind.
