A great family pantomime. I loved the chorus of little children, they put their heart and soul into the singing and dancing. The only negative would be the costumes, the fairy... read more

First time seeing a pantomine at Hazlitt theatre. We booked late but managed to get seats near the front. The pantomine was Sleeping beauty. The show was good and entertaining. I do prefer a pantomine with more famous faces. The seating was as you expect, not the most comfortable and can be cramp if you have long legs. The bar... More

Our first visit to The Hazlett, we watched Cirque Enchanted. Our seats in the balcony gave us a good view of the stage. The seating is showing its age as the whole row wobbled when ever anyone moved. The bar is OK but £7 for a glass of plonk is a bit steep. Would return if there is something we... More

Excellent show on Boxing Day afternoon. Well done to Jasmin who had to step in at the last minute to play Sleeping Beauty. All the cast were enthusiastic and seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as the audience were. Roll on Cinderella next year.

The pantomime itself was absolutely fantastic! I cannot fault it, hilarious, good value, just brilliant. The theatre itself is clean and looks professional, whilst I expect prices to be a little inflated, I found £6 for two bottles of coke ridiculous, and the ice cream was just as prices, but since it isn't something I take my kids to often,...

Went to see this years panto "Sleeping Beauty" and thoroughly enjoyed it. Brilliant actors and dancers including the younger cast members. The music and choreography were amazing too. Lots of interaction with the audience, especially Jingles and the fabulous Maid Joan, endless laughs all the way through for young and old. Definitely recommend it as something for the whole family.
