The script, written by Panto veterans Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper, really made some of the cast’s tongues work. Including classic moments such as a sing along and the production company's titular: He's Behind You, the script was the full package.
However, the ghost scene was unfortunately lacklustre and blue (balling). It felt unrehearsed which meant the ghosts came on as the cast finished singing, leaving the audience call outs to be spoken over and relatively ignored.
Another disappointment was the stage team, Daisy Francis-Bryden and James Prendergast, as many scenes were still being put in place during the scene or stage hands were physically coming through the curtain to close a door that wasn't working or pull a backdrop into the wing. For a production of this budget it was odd that moments like this existed.
That said, designed by David Shields, from castle, to stable, to racecourse, it was pretty and colourful and well crafted. Painted like something straight out of a drawing book, Set Blue Scenery and Tom Baum had taken the fairy tale concept and brought it to life effortlessly.
