The all-star line-up, featuring Julian Clary as the Spirit of the Beans and Nigel Havers as Fleshcreep, with Paul Zerdin (and Sam) making a special guest appearance as Simple Simon, and Robyn Mellor as Princess Apricot gave their first performance to a packed house at the matinee, closely followed by press night later the same day!
The reviews are universally, and quite deservedly, excellent. To quote from just one (What's On Stage): "A humdinger of a pantomime, oozing fun, frolics and feel good factor for the festive season."
The 3D effects are, as billed, amazing (and scary enough to have me burying my head in my seat buddy's shoulder at one point), the costume department have excelled themselves, especially with Julian's spectacular and extensive wardrobe, and in the best traditions of panto the comedy delivers on multiple levels, entertaining children and adults alike.
The show runs until Saturday 19 January 2013. [Ticket and schedule info removed now show is over.]
