Worthing's Panto is a Beaut this year!

Worthing Panto is back for 2021 and this year's Panto is a tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast.

With Covid19 being the ultimate bad guy, the pantomime season this year has been affected as we are missing the younger children on stage so just the young adult ensemble for 2021.

Like a true fairytale, the ultimate bad guy did not win, and the audience, wearing masks where they could, were treated to a fun, loud, belly laughing show that did not disappoint.

The children in the audience had a wonderful time, shouting out, clapping and joining it, it was wonderful to hear such joy after such a dark year.  No one is ever too old for Panto!

Beauty and the Beast: The Pantomime runs at the Pavilion Theatre from Friday 26 November 2021 – Sunday 2 January 2022.  Tickets are available from £10.  For more information or to book your tickets visit www.wtm.uk or call the WTM Box Office on 01903 206 206

Robin Windsor (Gaston) was a firm favourite in our family, with those fast actions hips and quick wit he played the bad guy very well and the beloved Belle did well to resist those looks.  But in true Gaston style, his love for himself would leave nothing left for Belle, so she had a lucky escape...

Jai McDowall & Sapphire Elia make the perfect couple as the Beast and Beauty, with stunning voices to complement each other, the two characters bring home the story of Beauty and the Beast as we all know and love.

It wouldn't be panto without a dame and Andre Vincent keeps the audience in check and bounces off the heckles in true dame style with just as much cheek back.  With her children Philippe Philoppe (Josh Haberfield) and Crepe Suzette (Katie Pritchard), the trio really do steal the show.   

Katie is my favourite performer, I loved her as the fairy godmother in 2019's Cinderella, and I'm so pleased to see that cheeky, fun character back as Crepe, not least of all because she has the most amazing singing voice!

For those in Worthing and are happy to be out, wearing masks and keeping safe, then I would thoroughly recommend Beauty and the Beast, and to help keep the spirit of Christmas Pantomine alive.

I can't wait for Jack and the Beanstalk!!

Max, with his favourite, Gaston!
