Sleeping Beauty

ALISON CROOSE Princess Theatre, Hunstanton


Princess Theatre, Hunstanton

Sunny Hunny's panto burst into life with a host of lovable characters in a slick, lively family show maintaining the best traditions of Christmas entertainment.

If decibels were a measure of success, the audience participation which nearly raised the roof was a roar of approval from both young and not-so-young in the audience.

All the vital ingredients were there in abundance with a strong team of actors and singers, plenty of comedy, superb costumes and a good team of young dancers.

The production demonstrated that age-old pantomime stories can be dusted down and presented as fresh and invigorating as the Hunstanton air.

There was plenty of humour, song and dance and the show was particularly strong on visual impact enhanced with striking colour co-ordination and dramatic backdrops and lighting.

The pantomime was directed by Michael Garland who led by example giving a strong performance as Merlin. He represented good which, of course, triumphed over evil portrayed by wicked Queen Morgana (Jacqueline Davis).

Thigh-slapping Prince Rupert (Jonathan de Mallet Morgan) teamed up well with Aurora (Lauren Stroud) and the King (Dudley Rogers), Muddles (Jonathan Ryley) and Nanny Nora (David Rumelle) provided a feast of laughs.
