Report

Author: Ed McGee

This was a very good family pantomime by MAOS, despite me seeing it on opening night. It wasn’t a full house by any means and the company certainly deserved better.

Congratulations must go to Lucy Thompson, who produced and directed the show but also found the time to play Wishee Washee, a tremendous achievement. She kept the audience participation up from start to finish, sang and acted well, well done Lucy.

    The pantomime moved along at a good pace and there were some good performances Caoimhe France was a good Aladdin, the Dame,William France as Widow Twankey played the part well, as did Trevor Mossop as the Genie, in fact there wasn’t a weak link in the team. Special mention though must go to stage debutant Neil Thompson, who played the evil Abanazer with aplomb. No mean feat for someone appearing on stage for the very first time. Well done Neil.

  The piped music was good and appropriate to the plot, I just felt the cues were a little slow from time to time, hopefully they will pick up as the week progresses. Scenery was good and appropriate and the lighting suited the plot. I must congratulate the wardrobe team, led by Diane. The costumes were absolutely superb, well done for all that wonderful hard work. Just one little criticism, if I may,  perhaps some of the young chorus could have worn coolie hats, to match the costumes, just a thought. They were in old Peking!!!!!.

    Well done to MAOS for a lovely evenings entertainment, and the drive from Workington to Millom and back was well worth while.
