The Big Maggie production was most enjoyable. Excellent acting and very good set. It was a pity that we had to endure arctic conditions. Overcoats were the order of the day. The staff were most unhelpful and you knew they were just doing a job. They were not good ambassadors for the theatre. Overall they contributed to a cold environment.

We went to see Little Red Riding Hood and I have to say, I thought it was brilliant. Its my first Kids panto experience but I think it would be hard to find another to out do this. My only criticism is that towards the end both of my children got a little bored even though the tempo picked up... More

I saw 3 pantos during the Christmas season and the gaiety panto is the best, primarily due to amazing sets and great attention to detail. The seating is not as good as Olympia.

An excellent show with professional dancers and singers. Music from Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and the roaring twenties. Don't get a seat on the end of rows around I,J as you cannot fully see all of the stage with overhang from the balcony above. This should be explained when buying your tickets. Otherwise this is really a show worth seeing... More

Portions of the play take place stage left and the view was partially obstructed by the second level. Be sure you know the seating plan. We were told these were premium seats and we paid a price for... More
