Having seen the advertising, I thought it was going to be a low budget, amateur production. I liked the theatre as it was fairly intimate & good for audience participation. Very excited, my kids had never seen a panto before. Thought the main part of the show was good and kept my little ones entertained but as my youngest was so young, she sometimes struggled to focus. I found I did have to explain the story to my children. The characters did interact with the children and my children loved this and really enjoyed it. They really got into it, it was bright & colourful & they loved the singing. My older child has not stopped talking about it since, especially the baddie!! It was really professional & the singers were fantastic. Yes this show does offer good value for money. It was a really good show and it entertained the kids brilliantly. I have already recommended to others and the Millfield Theatre. I can’t really fault it, the kids loved it. It was a fun, musical, fantastic afternoon for all the family, will definitely try & go again next year. Caroline Dulin – Joshua 3 years

I normally have been taking my kids to panto during the Christmas time. I saw a lot of advertisement of Dick Whittington. It was a lovely small theatre, it was very child friendly. When I got the confirmation email I told my daughters. They asked me every day when we were going. I was looking forward to going myself. The children sat very still. There were parts for the children to join in. They participated really well. Both my children understood the story. The characters in the show were very good with interacting with the audience especially the children. My children didn’t know what it was about until they saw the performance. The girls are into the Disney princess. They haven’t stopped talking about the show and we are already looking to book a pantomime for March. Every effort was made to make the production appeal to all the age groups. It’s a decent price for a family of four. Me and my family really enjoyed the show. I would recommend as it’s not too long; there was a break in between. Very child friendly, the characters interacted with the audience, after the show the characters came and had lunch in the cafe and spoke to us which was very exciting for the kids. A nice and funny way to teach children history. Derya Eryurekler – Dilara & Basak – 4 & 6 Years

This looked great and my children love pantomimes and we all knew the story so very excited to go along and see the show. The Millfield Theatre is very child friendly and lovely place to go. The show was brilliant and the characters were superb and when they interacted with the audience well the children just loved this part. They loved every minute of the show and every one of the characters captivated their attention, especially the baddie. They loved the interaction, the songs and the story. It was a very professional and well-produced
pantomime. Kept them entertained and they have not stopped talking about it. I had not been to Millfield for a while and we will certainly be booking panto again next year and already looked as shows they are producing during the year as my Twins has so much fun. Easy to find, child friendly and they put on a very professional production. We all loved it and will be going back again soon. Have already recommended to everyone and my twins have not stopped talking about it to all their friends. A fabulous Panto and a ‘Must See’ as great for all the family.
