As we discuss pairings, I must of course mention the Ugly Sisters, Melody, pronounced ‘Me Lady’ (Jamie Morris) and Harmony (Tarot Joseph). From the moment they both stepped out on stage, the connection with the audience was instant. Whether you loved or hated them, the comic value outweighed any other thought. Not to forget the incredible and spectacular costumes they paraded around in which were eye-popping and really did make their mark.
During the show, there were a few moments where I felt the story seemed to deviate in the way of cramming as much funny material in as possible, however it did feel just that, crammed in. You didn’t have opportunity to savour the last joke, before the next and it felt a little overkill in parts. Of course, Pantomime is known for not completely sticking to the script, and that is all the fun of it, but certain jokes didn’t seem to land as well as they could have, just due to the sheer volume.
