Panto, adapted by Terri Woodfine and Tess Burke. Spotlight Theatre, Benowa, Gold Coast. Director: Terri Woodfine. Jan 7 to 17, 2015
It’s school holidays, wet, and I have Master 9, Miss 7 and
Master 5 to entertain. What’s to do on a Wednesday morning?
This show has certainly started Spotlight’s 60th year off with a bang – or rather a flourish of trumpets and magic.
My own little audience was captivated from the very start – Master 9 grasping lots of the mature snippets of humour, along with the adults in the audience; while Master 5 adored the crazy slapstick pantomime comedy, that’s to be expected from this style of show.
