What's Good To Do

Directed by Toby Hulse
Written by Anna Nicholson and Bobby Goulder
Dramaturgy by Toby Hulse

Are you ready for a gigantic sprinkle of Christmassy festive magic?

The handsome but hapless Prince Charming has finally left university and come back home to the Kingdom of Ox. He’s ready to take on the crown and he’s looking for a wife. His ‘loyal’ deputy is there by his side, but the devilish Dandina has plans of her own. She’s determined to become Queen herself, whatever that may take...

Meanwhile our feisty Cinderella is busy bringing justice and freedom to the people browbeaten by Dandina’s outrageous tax on singing. If only her awful sisters would give her a break from running around after them all day and night!

Can the mysterious shape-shifting Fairy make sure that true love wins through and help our heroes to stop Dandina’s wicked plans?

Join Cinderella, and her best friend Buttons the mouse, on a midnight carriage ride like no other to the Playhouse Panto Party of the year!

5 Stars

There’re glittery sparkles, bubbles, sweets thrown into the audience, the obligatory water fight and an utterly diabolical villain. It’s great fun!

A glittering pantomime…we laughed, shouted, sang and stomped our feet for the most Christmassy two hours you could wish for.
