Occasionally a pantomime comes along that was written by the society that looks, feels and was acted with such precision and pace that it is very difficult to find fault with it in any way. From beginning to end this show flowed tremendously fast taking the audience with it up to the skies and back again.

It was truly a giant of an evening, and the audience were 110% with the production. The lights, costumes, songs, the singing and the choreography were of a very, very high standard. It was a privilege for me to be present at such an evening.

I am currently struggling with the mark sheet for this production, because quite frankly it did not - from the audience point of view - have any weaknesses.
