BoJo and his friends are coming to Liverpool for half term week.
In a world where Pantomimes are being cancelled, and theatres everywhere are closed, it can be a difficult time for those with children to find half term activities to do with their little ones. Succour Punch Theatre have the answer with this open-air production.
Bojo's World: The Panto is a COVID-Safe Halloween Pantomine, coming to St Luke's Bombed Out Church in Liverpool for half term week from 26th to 30th October.

The dreaded Assassin Bug has made his way to BoJo Land and is infecting all of the townspeople. Can BoJo along with his friends Doctor, Starman, Dominque and the one and only Dame Maggie Poppins save the town and stop Assassin Bug in his tracks?
Children will join BoJo on his adventure to defeat the dreadful Assassin Bug. On their way they will learn the importance of social distancing, washing their hands and wearing face masks, alongside a lot of laughter through the use of song!
Critically acclaimed, Succour Punch’s previous Liverpool shows have performed to sell-out audiences and received five star reviews from North West End and 9/10 Outstanding from WriteBase Reviews.
This open air production has been rehearsed using face shields, wipe-clean scripts, social distancing and copious amounts of sanitizer. Everyone involved is very proud to be bringing this educational panto to the stage.
Parents and caregivers please note:
Seating is limited due to Social Distancing arrangements and all entrants will be required to wear a mask or face covering.
The show is around 1 hour long and characters will all encourage keeping masks on
St Lukes Bombed Out Church is a Covid Safe Venue, make sure to wrap up warm but don’t worry about any rain as they have you covered.

What production would like to say
“This year has been such a dark time, for everyone. Theatre’s went dark in March and we’re finally starting to see the dim lights of hope. We’ve managed to create a safe, COVID compliant production to educate and inform children and families about not only what we need to do to stay safe, but why we’re doing it. The show on its base level is a children’s show following these loveable characters, but on a higher level is a satire that adults will love too!” - Sarah Sharp (Director)
“Its important to keep theatre alive. Even when things are dark its important to find a way to laugh. Bojo not only brings family friendly comedy and let us laugh at our current situation. It also lets us connect with each other even if we are socially distanced. As a survivor of Covid, I think its important we keep life going while staying safe.” - Faye Draper (Co-Writer)
“Succour Punch has always strived to educate whilst entertaining, and to create work for ourselves and other working-class actors. For myself, an additional purpose of this show is to bring some satire to Liverpool, as well as teaching kids about the virus in a way that can empower them, rather than scare them.” - Jazz Jago (Co-Writer)
