2010 Once Upon A Time Reviews
Daily Echo - Curtain Call
Tuesday 14th December 2010
By Gwen Moulster
This panto included snippets from many well known tales, including a well executed Mad Hatters tea party complete with custard pies.
Good triumphed over evil when Prince Marvellous (Alanna Nouwens) finally married sweetheart Princess Lottie (Abigail Hammond). David Woolford (Gertie) was a funny and endearing Dame, who at the invitation of the audience, sang (badly) at regular intervals. He actually had a beautiful voice evidenced by the well sung Trio with Marvellous and Jack (David Early).
Kirsty Turner (Evelyn) was a wonderful witch – her timing and characterisation were spot on. A special mention for stage manager Nick Kearns, who added an extra splash of humour.
