George Clooney is going to see a pantomime.

The 'Monuments Men' star is said to have purchased tickets for him and his new wife Amal to go see his pal Jerry Hall star in 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' at the Richmond Theatre in London.

A source revealed: ''George has always wanted to see a panto and this was the obvious one to go to as he's friends with Jerry.''

However, Amal - who is a British-Lebanese human rights lawyer - has had to teach her American husband what to expect from the festive show.

The source continued: ''Amal has been trying to explain the ins and outs of pantomimes to George, who is fascinated by all the cross dressing and bawdy humour that goes on.''

The 53-year-old actor will likely learn some more British Christmas traditions this month as he and Amal will spend the winter at their new home in Sonning-on-Thames, where 36-year-old Amal plans to cook turkey and all the trimmings.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: ''Amal will be introducing him to the delights of crackers, mince pies, mulled wine and the Queen's speech.

''George is very excited about having a traditional British Christmas.''

The silver fox may not be as impressed by his wife's choice of gift, however, as it's reported she's planning on buying him ''a pair of slippers''.
