Dan Leno - A Royal Jester

Steve Royle stars as the legendary Victorian music-hall comedian and Drury Lane pantomime star, Dan Leno. Premiered at Lytham Festival in 2018 to critical acclaim the play is now touring during 2019 with the original cast.

This exciting new play charts the life of Dan Leno who developed his skills as an artist in the Northern and Lancashire Music Halls and became a champion clog dancer, acrobat and comedian. He then went on to become a huge celebrity in the London theatres and established his name as the pre-eminent pantomime star at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, where he created some iconic dame roles, and became a favourite of King Edward VII and the Royal family.
