Earlier this month The Wobbly Jelly was invited to see this years Assembly Hall pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Much to the horror of the Jelly Babies, I went without them and instead invited the big sister of their buddies, Zara Bailey to come along and watch the show. We had a fabulous night together and even got to see a few of the stars of the pantomime after the show, before we were both whisked home by Zara’s dad.
Here’s eight year old Zara’s reveiw.
On Wednesday night, I went to see the Snow White pantomime at the Assembly Hall theatre in Tunbridge wells. It was really funny and also sometimes a bit cheeky!
My favourite character was Dolly. Dolly was Snow White’s nurse (nanny). Every time Dolly came on stage, she was wearing a different outfit. On one occasion, she wore a burger and chips dress!
The ‘Bad Queen’s’ joker Muddles, told most of the jokes. He was hilarious! One of my favourite jokes involved the Bad Queen pushing Muddles onto his bum, he then jumped up and pointed to his bottom and shouted “Oi, you broke my bum! Look there’s a crack in it!!” I think that the show was really good because it was entertaining, funny and you were never bored.
The following week I returned with the Jelly Babies and their cousins who live in New York. The eldest Jelly Baby felt sure he wouldn’t enjoy but within moments he was giggling away and particularly loved the moment when he thought he had been caught picking his nose. The littlest Jelly Baby and her cousins loved all the song and dance routines and spent the next 24 hours re creating them at home. I thought all the cast were fabulous but Su Pollard was absolutely knock out as the wicked stepmother.
The pantomime is on until Monday, January 2nd 2017 so you’ll have to be quick if you want to catch this hilarious family show.
