For a start, they’ve got the best dame in the business in the shape of Paul Laidlaw, who has also directed a highly polished, slick, colourful and very funny show. Fantastic at every level, the Dame had a wonderful range of costumes and provided just about the right amount of innuendo. The panto runs from 18th to 22nd Dec with 2 performances each day. Lester the Jester kept things fun for the kids with a wide variety of what can only be described as ‘Dad’ jokes, though the kids loved them, even if the adults were left to groan a bit.

Christmas pantos and shows in Hertfordshire
She was crying with laughter. The fairy tale of a headstrong village girl, an enchanted castle and the beast who lives there has enchanted generations. Christine Cole I saw Cinderell in Watford and found the dialogue traditional and up to date difficult thing to do. You can get the weather for wherever you want to in the UK. Ben eeked every ounce of comedy from the role with superbly timed delivery and well placed facial expressions and enjoyed some great knockabout comedy with Steve, another real audience pleaser.
Its production of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is a good old-fashioned panto, with not a celeb in sight. Impossibly glamorous and legs to die for – I think he needed a few warts! With a delighful Snow White Sarah Shepherdhandsome Prince Shane Lynch, ex-Boyzonethe hilarious comedy pairing of Ben Roddy as the Henchman and Steve Walls as Muddles and a wonderful troupe of seven dwarfs, this is an excellent, traditional pantomime with loads to appeal to all ages.
Aladdin – – Upstage Productions
Parents – step away from the tat stand! The show is directed by Victoria Ward, and musical director is Alexander Bermange. I was the person in the audience that go to say “Tally Ho Buttons! Uno bus catches fire heading from Shenley to Radlett. Funny without being “stand up comic” type.
Rob Copeland will add a touch of humour as Muddles, while Lucy Williamson and Barry Clark will bring about the “boos” as the wicked queen and her bumbling henchman, Boris. Watersmeet has all the ingredients for a great Snow White with live music, colourful sets and plenty of fun.
The 12 days of Christmas routine performed by five cast members using a variety of funny props went down really well with the audience.

One minute it’s Mickey Mouse, the next it’s Donald Duck. I also loved Gina Murray as the Fairy Godmother from Godmothers R Us with her large mobile phone, dodgy telephone answering service and relaxed manner – fab voice too!
Aladdin and his family dream of a better life filled with riches and adventure, far away from the humdrum of their daily life in the backstreets of Peking. Loads of fun for the family and great sets make for a memorable night!!
Not a celebrity in sight.
The twizzle sticks seemed to be an accident waiting to happen, as my mother would have radllett me as a child ‘if you keep waving that you’ll have someone’s eye out’. I like the way that the cenyre was planed out and how quietly the scene changes were. The Band played very well and they were ommunicating with the actors on stage which made it fit together perfectly.
Tapas Nights at The Golden Fleece. The all important Dwarfs will be played by local youngsters, who successfully auditioned to take part in the show during September. The Good and Bad fairies however, had the most amazing voices and were given the opportunity to show off their best in a ‘sing off’ to “Anything you can do I can do better”.
The cast were as talented as they were hysterically funny. Just the right amount. Rhythms of the Whitd Audiences have been promised a spectacular show with plenty of traditional panto fun with songs and slapstick comedy between D.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Allyson Brown is a really charming Cinderella with a voice that will knock your socks off and Ugly Sisters Adorabella and Fruitella Kieran Whitf and Dale Superville are hilarious and make the show their own! And the doctor said – “how long have you been having these Disney spells”!

And it also goes to show that you don’t need soap stars and reality TV “personalities” to get people into the theatre or indeed, give them a fantastic evening to remember. Appearing as the Wicked Queen is Lucy Williamson, who like many people, developed a love of pantomime at an early age.
As seen on TV: Kieran Buckeridge as Adorabella and Dale Superville as Fruitella were an excellent duo of Centee Sisters who bounced off each other brilliantly as they came on for each scene with ever cqst outrageous costumes!
How to make Hertfordshire wildlife a priority this year. They kept us all entertained throughout the entire show.
