We are very excited to reveal that our panto-inspired show, Pattie Breadcake: Into the Pantoverse, will also be broadcast on BBC Radio Humberside in the run-up to Christmas. 

The story of our favourite dame’s quest to help four classic panto princesses retell their tales for a modern audience will be aired across four mini-episodes, from 20-24 December. 

The partnership with BBC Radio Humberside is part of Middle Child’s commitment to make our work as accessible as possible.

This includes making the original animated version free-to-watch on YouTube, as well as providing both English and Polish subtitles. 

Artistic director Paul Smith said: “We’re delighted to partner with BBC Radio Humberside, to broadcast the show as four mini-radio plays, ensuring that people without internet access can also enjoy some theatre this Christmas.”

The scripts will be adapted and performed for radio by the original cast, to be broadcast on the following dates: 

  • Episode 1: Sleeping Beauty by Ellen Brammar – Sunday 20 December, 2.30pm
  • Episode 2: Maid Marian by Hannah Scorer – Monday 21 December, 8.30pm
  • Episode 3: Evil Queen by Maureen Lennon – Wednesday 23 December, 8.30pm
  • Episode 4: Cinderella by Deborah Acheampong – Thursday 24 December, 8.30pm

The original animated version will be available to watch on demand, on YouTube via our website, between Saturday 19 and Thursday 31 December.

You can listen to BBC Radio Humberside on 95.9FM in the Humber region, online at the BBC website or on the move through the BBC Sounds app.
