It’s only Panto that can convince an audience that a Cat can talk and in Victoria Hall’s latest production the audience are well and truly convinced as we are taken through every inch of this familiar tale.

A confident chorus sets us off with a lively opening number and it’s not long before we are introduced to Hans the shoemaker, played at very short notice by John Shawcross.  He is a perfct match for D-Monic, given the right amount of sinister overtone by Robert Goodier.

Bringing a regal touch to the proceedings is Barry Massey as glamorous Queen Gardinia and Brendan Higgins as a typically hen-pecked King Bulbous. Their young Daughter, Princess Tulip was played with an innocent air by Katie Barnes.

Comedy was safe in the hands of Roger Quinn and Emma Dearden as the slap-stick brothers of Harry, the Millers son which Matt Wilkinson made his own.  Margaret Foster played Felina, the Queen of Catland with authoritative command as she lays the law down in a manner you would expect from one so regal.

Cameo role of Mad Max, the crazy professor gave Chris Hilton something to get his teeth into whilst Lucy Foster as the Millers Cat displayed her graceful movements with ease.  Nick Pope’s interpretation of the Monster was akin to the popular character in the Munsters – it looked just right.

Completing the line-up, and taking on the title role was Natalie Quinn who, having been in many pantomimes, played this role with determination as she strived to see good better evil to ensure the principal couple overcome all obstacles to make it down the aisle to tie the knot.

Production team, Ray Darby and Dawn Hargreaves and Courtney Hargreaves should be rightly proud and, with an array of colourful costumes, scenery and lighting effects that made such a difference to the visual aspect, this panto is a treat for all the family and shouldn’t be missed.
