Treasure Island - I know the book, but the pantomime I don’t, but Danielle Grant (Director) and Nicolas Grant as your assistant Director and Musical Director, you cleverly put me in the picture instantly. This production was slick colourful and very enjoyable indeed. Along with Sally Warsop’s choreography all three of you put together a real, traditional pantomime. I absolutely loved Sally’s tap hornpipe, you should be proud of your cast for a wonderful array of talent being shown. I said three but we must not forget the Stage Manager Mike Simpson who has charge when all are on stage. His staff made this Treasure Island sail along nicely. Your technical and Creative team gave us a great set, lighting, sound effects and sound, adding to the atmosphere of this Treasure Island. 

What a cast you had - too many to mention individually along with team Jim/Rosie juniors you all were word perfect, songs well sung, and diction and projection and characterisation of each one of you was exceptional. I was sitting two rows from the back and heard every word. Your audience were with you all the way, so much so, the little boy next to me was so happy cheering vast bottom when it was required, so much so he landed on my lap..!! That tells you all that you succeeded in giving us all a perfectly entertaining afternoon, with your traditional Pantomime. Thank you for introducing it to me. West Wickham keep up this standard to your pantomimes.
