Big news just in about this year’s York Theatre Royal pantomime: award-winning television presenter and YouTuber Maddie Moate is the first signing for this year’s show, All New Adventures of Peter Pan (2nd December 2022 to 2 January 2023).This is the second time the theatre has produced its annual pantomime in partnership with Evolution Productions. It follows the success of last year’s production of Cinderella with another CBeebies favourite Andy Day which was nominated as Best Panto at the British Pantomime Awards.
Maddie will play fabulous, feisty fairy Tinkerbell. Since 2016 she has presented the wildly popular BBC CBeebies series Do You Know? exploring the secret workings of everyday objects, winning Best Presenter at the BAFTA Children’s Awards. She has also starred in the CBeebies Proms Live at the Albert Hall, multiple CBeebies Christmas Shows and presented the CBeebies Ballet. Beyond CBeebies, she has also hosted CBBC’s Show Me Honey as well as BBC’s Springwatch Academy and CNBC’s The Cloud Challenge. Maddie has a huge online presence. Her own science and technology YouTube channel is enjoyed by millions of families worldwide. She takes her audience on educational adventures and inspires them to ‘say curious’. More recently her channel has been the home of Let’s Go Live! With Maddie and Greg, her live daily live science show for families.
