As a family we went to the Norwich Theatre Royal Panto last Tuesday to see Sleeping Beauty.
Wow what a show, we go each year to the pantomime at the theatre. It doesn’t feel like Christmas until we have seen the pantomime.
Little A & Big K love going to the theatre and really look forward to the pantomime each year.
This year we sat upstairs in the circle so had had a different view as to previous years. It was great to see the stage from a height and not being too close row D.
The show was fantastic, funny, full of energy. The cast performed wonderfully with some amazing singing, acting and dancing. The young dancers worked so hard and the little ladybird was so cute!!
Richard Gauntlett who produces, writes and stars as the dame is incredible he is hilarious – his costumes are great. Ben Langley is also a great actor and very funny, we remembered seeing him in previous pantomimes.
There were a couple of famous faces appearing including Derek Griffiths (Coronation Street, play school) Gillingham Wright (Eastenders) Elizabeth Carter (Dreamboats and Petticoats).
The show lasted around 2 hours 20 minutes with an interval to buy ice cream or a drink. The ice creams have increased in size and price this year.
We thoroughly enjoyed the show, if you get a chance to go and see it take the opportunity you won’t be disappointed. The pantomime is on until mid January, most performances are sold out but you may be lucky to get some tickets.
Thanks for reading.
