Birmingham Hippodrome once again has a huge hit of panto fun with Brian Conley heading the cast as the title character of Crusoe in this panto based loosely on the story of Robinson Crusoe.
I was lucky enough to review the show for Whats on Stage – click here to read the full review but here, like usual, is a tiny snippet!
This really is a laugh a minute panto for the whole family with jokes for the ears of the young and the old without being unsuitable. The sets are impressively large and colourful filled with fantastic performances including children from The Birmingham Stage School and an ensemble who effortlessly change characters and seem to have unlimited energy. Even those who are not panto fans will be able to raise a smile, participate and most importantly, enjoy the spectacle of pantomime.
This is the perfect panto for the festive season. 5/5
Christmas might be over, and we may be entering the new year with gusto, but it’s never too late to go see a panto!
Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates continues through to Sunday 27th January. Ticket info here.
