I hadn't planned to attend but friends were going so I reluctantly decided to join them. This was a good kids-parents event that was not for me.

Directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell 

Produced by Eileen Kent 

A traditional British Pantomime 

Young Peter’s evil brothers have cheated him out of his inheritance, leaving him with nothing but his mangy old cat. Worse, the girl he loves is really a princess, and her mother wants her to marry a rich lord. Plus, a hungry ogre is looking for dinner. But wait! Mother Goose casts a spell on the cat, and it’s Puss in Boots to the rescue!

British pantomime takes familiar fairy tales and children’s stories such as Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and His Cat, Snow White and injects a bit of music hall (British Vaudeville) sensibility, contemporary references and audience participation to create a raucous, noisy entertainment that’s fun for the whole family.
