I had the pleasure of taking my daughter to see the above Pantomime at Paul Robeson Theatre earlier this evening. It was her first panto so I was probably as excited as she was.
I recommend that you go along and see this show, especially if you have kids. It is great fun and the theatre is perfect for this particular show.
I recognised quite a few of the cast. Spencer O’Brien played Jack. Catherine Gibson played Jill. Richard Albrecht played Dame Trot (I am not sure if my daughter realised that it was a man playing the part of a lady). Jessica Francis played the Fairy. And, Gerard Carey (any Torchwood fans?) played Grovel.
Here are a few pics:
After the show, the cast came out to say hello. Here is a picture of me, my daughter, Jack & Jill.
As it was the first performance there was a small celebration afterwards. One lady made a fantastic cake:
And, here are some of the people having a chat and drinking to a wonderful first night:
It was also lovely to meet members of the Production team. Everyone was so friendly and excited about the season.
