Jack and the Beanstalk
This may have been my favourite Panto ... ever. There, why beat about the beanstalk? I've just saved you 5 minutes of your life. Buy a ticket. Merry Christmas!

Still here? Okay I'll tell you more.

First, it's spectacular! Eye-popping scenery and costumes are outshone by dazzling lighting, epics sets, a MASSIVE giant ... and a flying machine to take your breath away!

Next, it's entertaining! Just as many jokes for the adults as for the kids and they hit that perfect rhythm so that just before the mirth is lost from one, another comes right along. Performances from the stars (Elaine C. Smith, Johnny Mac and Jonathan Watson) were great and the audience of kids and families raised the roof! I must admit that I laughed loudest when the young audience members were asked to join Johnny onstage - hilarious!

Music from the live band led by James Dunsmore was lively, upbeat and had broad appeal. The 8 strong troop of dancers were energetic and talented and were rewarded with the traditional yet impressive gold-encrusted costumes for the finale!

This is a great family show and well worth the ticket price. Book early to kick start your Christmas feel good season this year.
