Written by Simon Dodwell and David Crane and directed by Michael Crane, this panto loosely based on the story of Pinocchio has something for all the family.

If the adults listen carefully there is also something for them to chuckle at that will go straight over the heads of their children.

Colourful costumes, clever lighting effects and a large, enthusiastic cast, made this a hit with the audience.

Mick Richardson makes a wonderfully upstanding Dame Vi Agra, David Crane and Simon Dodwell combine well as Willy and Wally, Lisa Dee and Rachel Foskett work well as principal boy and his love interest.

They produce some wonderful songs between them. Tony Walles produces a suitably nasty pirate, Captain Fishface. The cast overcame problems with the sound superbly.

Watch out for the pint-sized Elvis who surfaces in the most unlikely place. An instant hit with the audience and well carried off by one so young. There's even a young Harriet Potter!

If you hurry you just might get a ticket – its been popular. The first panto at the Angel Theatre and I hope not the last.
