Even by its own dependably high standards, this year's courtyard pantomime is a tour de force. It radiates a Covid-defiant, joyous sense of celebration: the return of live theatre in the hands of a consummately creative team... In the best Courtyard tradition - not to be revealed here - the special effects are awesomely spectacular. Costume and design are ravishingly extravagant, showcasing some electrifying choreography and superb singing. *****
The Stage
An absolute triumph! Loved it! The tonic everyone needs to cheer them after such unsettling, upsetting times. And the CHICKEN DANCE! I will be laughing at that until the end of time. Magnificent!

At the age of 36 years old this was my very first pantomime and I got to experience this with my children and family was amazing, no words can describe what a lovely time and experience it was well done to all involved.
Audience member
Absolutely brilliant. My daughter was 5 and kept her entertained the whole time. It really was suited for all ages. Quirky little lines for adults, brilliantly written script for all to enjoy.

AMAZING! It was our first time at the panto and the three of us agreed, that this will now become a Christmas tradition. The actors were fantastic, especially Rosie Posie. The jokes were relevant and current, allowing the adults to have a chuckle. The dancing and singing were excellent and the costumes/setting outstanding! My little boy (four) loved Caroline and the chickens. His face lit up at the site of "a real life giant", as adults we were also amazed! It was simply magical, well done!!

That was the best experience I have had in a while. What a performance! My kids 3 and 5 were mesmerized! My wife and I was thrilled! Great stage performance, great music...oh it was UNBELIEVABLE! Thank you so much to all involved!
