I had the pleasure of being invited to see the performance of Sleeping Beauty tonight at our beautiful Crewe Lyceum Theatre.
It was so good to see covid had not dampened the atmosphere at the theatre and it was lovely to see it so busy again.
TV Personality and Comedian Bobby Davro was the extremely funny Muddles, there was so much interaction with the audience and he dealt with a heckler like a pro. The tongue twister sketch was hilarious and slightly risqué. X Factor star Amelia Lily was Princess Beauty, her opening song got the audience clapping their hands and tapping their feet.
Malcolm Lord was a fantastic Dame and had a great bond with Bobby.
Carabosse, The Wicked Fairy (Bethany Alice Black) gave a convincing performance as a baddie, her costume was stunning. Isabella Mason played her 1st role in panto as The Good Fairy, her rendition of When you believe was breathtaking and she lit up the stage.
Chris Durtnal was the handsome Prince Harry of Haslington and had great chemistry with Sleeping Beauty.
My only one criticism was the sound, I felt the music was slightly over powering the vocals. but it was definitely good to be back at the theatre again.
