Ever since our first panto a couple of years back we have loved going to watch them. We have been super lucky that like last years panto, we were invited back. This time to watch the Peter Pan Panto at The Key Theatre.
Peter Pan Panto
Last years panto we were questioning whether it was going to go ahead due to the ice and snow!
We arrived around 30 minutes before the show was due to start as we had to collect our tickets. We then made our way upstairs to purchase the snacks and get our seats.
Last year we were not aware of the snack pack until it was too late. This year I wanted to make sure to get the boys one each. For £3.95 there is a small popcorn, small drink, a bag of buttons and then an small ice cream during the interval. It all comes in a white paper bag so you don’t need to worry about carrying it all and inside there is a voucher for the ice-cream.
Like last year the Key Theatre also sell flashing lights. We decided against buying them however they are all reasonably priced. During the show they did start to annoy me, every 2 minutes the flashing in the corner of my eyes was just annoying! especially in a dimly lit room so it is so bright too!
He’s behind you!
The show itself was really lovely! There are enough jokes to keep the adults entertained and enough audience participation to keep the children shouting wanting more! The story line is pretty similar to what Peter Pan is all about but it has it’s own twists to keep it unique! There were a lot of Gender/Feminism references. Which after awhile became a bit samey, and of course went straight over the boys head.
The show itself lasts around 2 hours and 10 minutes and that includes time for the interval too. The car park just outside costs £3.60 for 3 hours and is a pay and display machine which accepts both cash and card. Although it doesn’t give change. Peter Pan is running until the 6th January and costs between £12 and £18.50 per ticket. Tickets are available here.
*We were given complimentary tickets
