“Nottingham spares no sparkles for glittering panto” ★★★★

In Alfred Hickling’s fabulous review for The Guardian, he says “Writer-director Kenneth Alan Taylor has been tinkering with this formula for 33 years, so it’s no surprise that he has it bubbling to perfection.”

“Wildly funny and beautifully staged pantomime” ★★★★

The Stage writes that the Playhouse Panto “combines clear and honest storytelling with some glorious, even outrageous departures from tradition.”

“Another smasher… a show to be proud of”

The Nottingham Post review gives a glimpse of what to look forward to, commenting that “one of the highlights of the evening was the Egyptian scene, where Nathan Elwick really stole the show… We won’t forget the sight of those legs for a while!”

“One very magic carpet ride for all the family” ★★★★

East Midlands Theatre also says that “audiences can rest assured that with the lovable John Elkington as a fabulous Widow Twankey they will be in for a super dooper time.”

“Fast paced and fun; how a panto should be”

Nottingham Live continues to say that “the Dame’s connection with the audience had me, and those around me, in sequin lined stitches.”
