"Like a fine Christmas gravy, Dan and Jeff have seasoned, simmered and reduced the best ingredients of the nation’s favourite festive shows into a neatly gift-wrapped package. They career through Cinderella in 3D including the first ever Fairy-Godchicken. They dazzle with Dick Whittington featuring Jeff as the Mayor of London: blond, posh and receiving just the treatment he deserves (with a mallet and a custard pie). An astonishing new take on Jeff’s favourite panto Aladdin gives the story 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 see Dan and Jeff trying to work out not only how two people can play seven dwarves, but also which of them will make the prettiest princess. 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. "
