Comments from our audience:

My friend and I took my grandsons to see the panto this afternoon and it was brilliant. Its only a small theatre but the production was really polished, the sets make up and costumes were great as was the acting, you should be proud of yourselves.

Really enjoyed tonight's performance of Scrooge. It was our first time here and what a great standard of fun, joy and laughter!
My 10 year old daughter couldn't stop talking about the funny moments all the way home.
Thank you all for all your hard work previous to tonight's performance-it clearly has paid off because you all were shining stars.

Really enjoyed last nights performance of Scrooge! The dame was hilarious and stole the show. We loved the whole thing from start to finish. What a great way to get in the mood for Christmas. Well done to everyone involved!
