The show runs from Saturday 3rd December to Sunday 11th December.
The production is also making guest appearances at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London, Liverpool Empire and New Theater Oxford.
McKellen’s last pantomime appearance was at the Old Vic where he played Widow Twankey in Alladin.
The award-winning actor, best known for his Shakespearean performances and his role as Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings, announced the news in front of a giant golden egg in London.
“Panto is ours. Nowhere else in the world does this tradition exist,” he said.
