A few months ago, I came across a touring theatre company, Act One Productions who travel the country performing pantomimes to groups.
I decided to get the gang together, once again, to celebrate the start of half term and booked Act One. This season's panto is The Wizard of Oz so got the date confirmed and dusted off the ruby slippers :0)
Booking process was really easy and efficient, although they only had a few dates available due to their own popularity, Jule was very helpful and it was seamless.
I booked a lovely big hall with loads of space and that was all I needed to do, well apart from making up 30 treat bags for eager kids!
The guys from Act One turned up bang on time and even helped with the re-arranging of chairs etc. They set up and were ready to go spot on our start time.
The show was great, it was funny and full of lots of pop songs that the kids all recognised. It lasted just under an hour so was a perfect time for little ones and involved lots of audience participation. My two loved it, they thought the cowardly lion was really funny.
The actors came out at the end to pose for photo's with the kids and that was an added bonus.
Thanks again to Act One we had a ball.
