Do you love a good Panto?
Were you sorry when traditional Panto season was over?
There are a number of Easter Pantos around this year so whilst the children are off school it might be worth seeing what is on in your local area and having some fun family time together. A good Panto never fails to create good spirits.
We went to see the Epstein Theatre Liverpool Panto ‘Beauty and the Beast’ starring 5ive pop sensation Ritchie Neville in his panto debut as Anton, Grease is the Word’s Alison Crawford as Belle and the hilarious Michael Chapman as Dame Dolly Doughnut. The theatre is very traditional and creates an intimate feel, with most seats having superb visibility.
As is the case with any good Panto there were plenty of jokes and they appealed at a range of ages. There were plenty of giggles from children, parents and grandparents alike.
Our favourite character was Dame Dolly Doughnut, he/she had all the best lines and executed them perfectly, creating raucous laughter from the audience.
The musical numbers were in general high energy ones which I feel always works the best with such a mixed audience but there could have been more of them, as generally speaking the acting scenes lost the interest of children, although obviously other audience members still seemed engaged.
