All the classic pantos cramed into one show - offering seven pantomimes for the price of one! Through Cinderella in 3D including a cameo from the first ever Fairy Godchicken to grace a West End stage. Dick Whittington the Mayor of London: blond, posh and receiving just the treatment he deserves (with a large mallet and a custard pie). Aladdin gets a whole new twist, and Daisy the Cow from Jack and The Beanstalk gives a heart-rending turn as she’s led to market. Not to mention the full-scale versions of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty which sees two people play seven dwarves. From conventions and costume to heroes and villains, the dastardly double act explore all the elements of the art form we both love and loathe as a nation.
