Annie Fanny and Friends is coming to The Plowright Theatre!

Hello Everybody!

Have you ever wondered what Scunthorpe’s favourite dame Annie Fanny does the rest of the year? Ever wondered how he became a pantomime dame? What’s the link between Annie Fanny and James Bond? Is there a question you’ve always wanted to ask Annie Fanny? 

If so, then this is the show for you!

“An Evening With Annie Fanny And Friends” is a chance to meet the man behind the ubiquitous dame, Darren Johnson.

The show visits The Plowright Theatre on 11 May and tickets go on sale on Friday at 10.30am.

Over the course of the evening, Darren will give you the whole story of how he became an actor, the jobs he’s had, the people he’s worked with and why he has spent the last 15 years performing Annie Fanny here in Scunthorpe.

Darren will be joined on stage by his long-time panto pals Rebecca Little and Jeremy Stroughair who will perform with him in a variety of songs and sketches along with a very special guest, his son Joseph Johnson. The show will be hosted by pantomime favourite Hambi Pappas.

The highlight of the evening will be an opportunity to see Darren transform himself into Annie Fanny before your very eyes along with a unique opportunity to ask Annie Fanny a question. 

This is an evening of entertainment that’s suitable for all the family!

Come and meet the man behind the Dame!
