Panto Pronto!!!! So much to see and enjoy this week.
It’s still not too late to grab yourself a front row seat at one of the many Liverpool premier theatres for the ‘panto’ experience.
Just enjoyed a last minute booking at the Unity Theatre Tel (0844873288) for a 2pm performance of ‘The Princess & The Pea’ and thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was a truly pleasant, heart-warming, uplifting performance with a pleasant romp through pantoland, embellished with witty song dance and the usual comic gags that give the mums and dads a good share of the festive fun, that’s cheap at the price.
A short walk down Bold Street and the Epstein Theatre Tel (08448884411) has a pulsating charmer with Callum Best and Merseybeat legend Beryl Marsden who punches out a spellbinding enchanting Cinderella panto with all the trimmings.
This is certainly a powerful production with all the laughs but made all the more potent and enjoyable by Beryl Marsden’s masterful vocals. A super evenings entertainment enjoyed by all!
A little further afield at a stones throw down the E. Lancs brings you to the St Helens Theatre Royal Tel (01744756000) for another rags to riches story of Cinderella. With one wave of a magic wand, you will be whisked off to a glamorous ball this Christmas as Regal Entertainments present their classic tale.
This years offering is bigger than ever with an all-star cast including bad boy Rob Donovan of ITV’s Coronation Street, Marc Bayliss and with Benidorm’s favourite Cissy Rock staring as one of the Ugly Sisters, bringing a real touch of raucous laughter to the plot.
Not to be out done, Simon Foster retains the comic element as the Fairy Godmother bringing lashings of magic and sparkle.
A belly full of laughs and the very best of Christmas family entertainment will be had with all these seasonal theatre offerings.
Meet a wicked Queen, a giant Pea, Shetland ponies, enchanted pumpkins and a sparkling fairy-tale carriage not to be missed in these festive fantasies for all the family to enjoy.
These are Christmas shows that will make you laugh, sing and glad you got off your backside and bought a ticket!
And A Merry Christmas!
