It’s Christmas soon, and there’s a good chance that some of you may have kids pestering you to go to a pantomime. We all know how terrible panto is don’t we? Well, get this! Panto just got hip! How? Well, at the New Wimbledon Theatre in south west London, you’ll be able to see the Fonz.
That’s right, Henry Winkler who played the great Arthur Fonzerelli in Happy Days is a matter of weeks away from treading the boards as Captain Hook in Peter Pan. Winkler came in as a last minute replacement to David Hasselhoff who pulled
out of the production which starts in early December. "We don’t have panto in America and it sounds
unbelievably fun," said the Fonz. "I love the Peter Pan story and I love Captain Hook! He’s a
villain but hey, he had his hand bitten off by a crocodile – you have
to feel some sympathy for the guy." Get you’re tickets soon before they’re snapped up!
