A truly magical production in every sense it was heralded in many quarters as the best The King’s Theatre has staged. No mean feat given this theatre’s pantomime record of success. With a heavy emphasis on comedy, there were some hilarious modern spins on traditional panto gags from an extremely talented cast.
