We went to see this show a few days ago. It was dreadful. Su Pollard was very much underused - the Hoff was fine but Barney Harwood was appalling. Whoever thought of casting him wants sacking! He has all the stage presence and personality of a wet fish. With no idea of how to work an audience, it was as if he could barely be bothered to speak his lines. The shows single saving grace was Ben Nickless who played Smee. In fact, the shows 1 star rating that I've given it is because of him. My advice? Go and see a local Amateur panto. You'll have more laughs and see more entertaining characters than this load of rubbish can offer.
