If you haven’t yet booked your family panto, or are just looking for an entertaining night out, then look no further. Ticket prices are really reasonable, starting at £19.99 and under twos are free. The theatre isn’t massive, so wherever you sit you’ll get a good view.
Overall the show was a crowd pleaser. It’s full of classic panto favourites, including a very flamboyant Dame played by David Rumelle. Who cares that some gags fell flat – especially the joke mocking our much loved Brighton and Hove Albion! I felt the show exploded on stage during the second half. The giant in particular was so much fun, as were the amazing dancers.
What gives the whole show some extra sparkle is the amazing singing, especially by the ladies. Kerris Lea from The Sundaes and Molly Scott, princess Danielle, belted out some beautiful tunes. I didn’t always get the correlation between some song choices and scenes, but it didn’t matter. When their beautiful voices filled the venue, you are completely captivated.
My son loved it. He knew the story line and was excited at every stage. The pyrotechnics were great and the detailed costumes added to the magic and detail. The Christmas market was also very popular, especially the sweets, rides and softplay!
This was my first pantomime at The Brighton Hilton Metropole and it certainly won’t be my last. In fact, they are already selling tickets for next years offering, Peter Pan… Jack and the Beanstalk is running from 20th-29th December. Go and see it before it’s too late!
