Here at Mum’s the Word we love a pantomime – in fact in our younger years we used to appear in one every Christmas (but that’s another story!!!) – so going to the panto definitely signifies the start of the festive season for us!
We were extremely excited to drag the children away from the play station and go out as a family to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs last week and we certainly weren’t disappointed! The show was all singing, all dancing and full of LOL (laugh out loud) moments from start to finish with a good smattering of ‘he’s behind you’ ‘Oh yes he is, oh no he isn’t’ to please the most avid panto goer!
For me the stand out performance was by the legendary Su Pollard… as a child of the 80s – I remember her well as Peggy from Hi-de-Hi fame, but I had no idea she had a belter of a voice! She made a brilliant Wicked Queen and was evil and comedic in equal measure. I also loved the panto dame Nursie, who’s wardrobe was really quite extraordinary!!!
