The King’s Panto is a Christmas tradition no family should miss!

Scotland’s most popular dame, Allan Stewart, is back in the greatest pantomime of them all! Andy Gray stars alongside as the lovable Buttons, and get ready to boo and hiss your favourite baddie, Grant Stott, who seems to have taken a shine to the high heels he wore in last year’s panto!

Panto dream time Allan Stewart, Andy Gray, Grant Stott and Paul Elliot strike gold once again

The great strength of the King’s panto, year upon year, is its ability to hook audiences of all ages and tastes. The script, co-written by Paul Elliott and everyone’s favourite dame, Allan Stewart, features great dollops of slapstick and toilet humour…

I am pleased to say that I enjoyed my visit to this years panto at the King's, Cinderella.

The good elements included excellent lighting and effects, good choice in music, good acting, good humor, and some good routines.

Bad points, it is not anything terribly new for the King's. Most of the jokes and routines have all been done recently. For those of us who regularly visit the King's panto, we've heard it all and seen it all before. Also, having Karen Dunbar, who is excellent, playing both fairy godmother and wicked stepmother doesn't really work. She takes to both roles well, but for me, the two characters are opposites and cannot be played by the same person. Its confusing for the kids anyway.

If you have not seen a King's panto recently, or at all, then do go. It will be an enjoyable evening and will appear fresh. If you are a regular, except much of the same, but it is up to the standard, which is more than can be said for last years!
