The other night we saw this year’s panto Sleeping Beauty at the Theatre Royal Windsor on their press night, and oh my goodness it was such a fun evening!
We laughed soooo much. It was the first time my kids had been to a panto, and they laughed all the way through, especially Tyler – he was cracking up!
The audience interaction is so on point here, with the familiar Windsoria faces on stage. Booing at the villain Anita Harris. Kevin Cruise and Steven Blakeley – the comedy duo to make you laugh and shout at the stage. “He’s behind you!” And Lauren Lane’s debut as Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty was fab, she can sing 👏
Watching this show brought back flashbacks of my childhood, classic British humour that kids and adults alike will love. I saw all ages from very young kids through to grandparents all enjoying themselves.
There were dances to songs that the younger crowd will recognise, and references to social media that meant it was so up-to-date. There was even a Kevin Cruise rave, getting us air guitaring to Bon Jovi like we were at a mini concert 😂
12 days of Christmas was pure comedy with water pistols being squirted and loo rolls being thrown amongst the audience. Kids were loving it!
I honestly think no other panto can beat the Windsor panto, and it’s worth every penny to buy a ticket to see this show.
It is child-friendly, and booster seats are available for £1. We were sat in the Royal Stalls on Row L which had a perfect view. Popcorn, ice cream and drinks are available to buy before the show or in the interval.
The show is 2 hours long, so I’d say if you think your child might get restless, choose seats at the aisle ends so you can nip out if you need to.
