The seventh Greater Manchester Fringe opens on July 1 with Story Time with Mama G at 1PM and 2:30PM at Tribeca in the heart of Manchester's gay community.

Combining panto, drag and the traditional art of story-telling: Mama G will be sharing tales with children and their families.

Petite Pantos is a theatre company that specialises in pantomimes with a social conscience—championing LGBTQ+ issues, feminism and positive representation of race and gender.

Story Time with Mama G stars Robert Pearce, who played Bungle in Rainbow Live, shared the stage with Tommy Steele and memorably played a tree on a rural tour of Scotland.

Maisie Adam will be presenting her show Vague on July 1 and 2 at 7:30PM at the King's Arms in Salford.

A Surgeon's Photograph, July 1 to 3 at Footlights in Media City, is a première of a new LGBT musical.

Details of these and many more shows are at the Greater Manchester Fringe web site.
