Ooh, good plan. I'm going to see if our local one is on sale yet.

We're trying the panto for the first time this year as dd2 will be a couple of weeks short of 4 and hopefully will like it, I haven't been since I was little.

Happy to share in your excitement!

I'm not going on Christmas Eve but I will be going to see Cinderella in December... It's not my local one (by over hundred miles) but it's in a place I've always wanted to visit: Bournemouth!

Plus my favourite lady is in it so I get to see her too; if anyone has recommendations for accommodation in Bournemouth, that would be grand! smile

I do love an Easter panto too, the ones with Bobby Davro are great! I've seen 5 Easter pantos with him in it (Wizard of Oz x 3 - 5 dates Peter Pan x 1 - 3 dates and Beauty & The Beast x 1 - 1 date).

Pantomimes are ace!!

nota who is in Cinderella, it says on the website "cast to be announced"

My DC are too old for Panto "Oh No You're Not" "Oh Yes They Are"

I need to have a search for something for DD and I (we like to go to Swan Lake or The Nutcracker)

70, the ones I know about are: Cinderella - Dani Harmer (Tracy Beaker), Buttons - Noel Brodie (he was there last year for Snow White), Prince Charming - Rhydian Roberts (I think he's from x-factor) and Fairy Godmother - Melanie Walters (Gavin & Stacey)

I'm scanning the web to see if Bradley Walsh is doing Panto (he was in Birmingham last year with Paul O'Grady and Dick'n'Dom)

Last year Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchell from Eastenders ) was in fairly near us.
Where we go locally, I've never seen any well known stars, though Twist&Pulse switched on the Lights one year fgrin

We have never been but would love to go! However having just looked at the one nearest to us, it would be £104 for me, dh and 2 ds to go, I'm not sure we could justify that in the run up to Christmas! Are they always so expensive? Guess we'll go to the cinema instead lol.

giraffesarefab Depends where you go. If you go to a local (think small town rather than city centre) theatre, it'd be more like £50 or £60 for a family ticket. It's often a lot cheaper to go off peak too (ie in November or January, morning or evening rather than afternoon matinee). Also -'don't be afraid of cheaper seats in a bigger theatre (upper circle etc). The kids will still get the jokes and the atmosphere and you adapt to the higher view after 10 mins or so.
