It’s been a very busy and very exciting few days at Oxford Playhouse. Our latest pantomime, Aladdin, opened on Friday to rapturous applause and since then we’ve steamed through 5 fabulous performances.
The audiences especially have been so brilliantly loud and lively, which has made the cast feel very loved and happy. The audience are pretty much one of the performers for panto, and it’s really great to see you’ve all been learning your lines!
And (as we thrive on your validation) it’s been really pleasing to see all the positive feedback left online or in our comments book.
From this thoughtful review from a long-term panto fan that calls it “Very enjoyable. Mr Marmion has proved a worthy successor to Peter Duncan” (not to mention claiming that our cast’s version of Hello is even better than Adele’s!) to the incredibly high praise that is “the best panto I have ever seen” – your comments have already made our week.
Here’s a few more of our favourites.
“Had a ball at @OxfordPlayhouse#Aladdin panto! Thanks for starting off Christmas with a bang.”
“So @OxfordPlayhouse & @stevemarmion's #OxfordAladdin is genuinely hilarious. Get your tickets quick before they all go!”
