HURRAY for Aladdin And The Twankeys at York Theatre Royal.
Last year’s pantomime was one of the best in years, but this year’s is even better. The wonderful staff who recognise us year on year, the orchestra with Barry are superb.
Berwick and cast, along with the scenery, are absolutely fantastic. The singing, dancing, acting and the “little ones” made for a fast and furious show. We loved the film around the city and beyond.
There are always references to local areas; Selby was very much to the fore, as too was Pocklington.
I always get a Waggon Wheel and once a “Newky Brown” for having the biggest “gob” – Berwick says. He and I have “little goes” at each other. I gave my Waggon Wheel to the nearest child, the girl from Amotherby next to me.
The surprised delight on her face said it all. She shouted as loudly as me.
The whole theatre was packed to the roof and in full cry. I cannot wait for next year.
