Cinderella at Worthing – kids’ Q&A

Best costume? Corniest joke? Get a taste of this year's panto from our pint-sized reviewers (and their adults)

Muddy’s Naomi Thompson took her girls (six and eight) to Worthing’s 2019 panto Cinderella. Here’s the family’s lowdown on the best bits.

Favourite character

Girls: Buttons. A brilliant return for Mark Jones the children all loved him never missing a poo joke! He is really ace at getting the audience up and involved.

Grown ups: Fairy G. Fairy Godmother Katie Pritchard was an unexpected joy she has an awesome singing voice that we had not expected from her speaking voice. We all loved her performance of Halo at the end of the first act. It was amazing and the snow falling on the audience was brilliant, the girls loved it.

Funniest bit?

Everyone: The best comedy moment was the 12 Days of Christmas song with Strictly’s Ian Waite swinging “5 toilet rolls!” There was loads of audience participation and who doesn’t love a song when you end up getting caught in the cross fire of a water fight, and an enormous mobile phone gag?

Best joke?

Girls: A Harry Potter joke about “He who shall not be named” – totally HP obsessed in our house!
Grown ups: A proper dad joke… “How do you tell the time with a tuba?” (plays tuba) “Who is playing a tuber at 3:30 am?!”

Best songs?

Grown ups: Fairy G singing Halo with real commitment.
Girls: Fairy G singing with the children from the audience the ingredients for a wedding cake…. all about the actions again.

Favourite costumes?

Girls: Cinderella Obvs !
Grown ups: The Ugly Sisters – loving their hair!

Overall highlight?

Everyone: We went on the night of the signed performance and we all confess to loving the brilliant signer. Her highlight was definitely doing the Mel & Kim hit from the 80’s Respectable but she was excellent every part of the show!

Cinderella is at Worthing’s Pavilion Theatre, Fri 29 Nov to Sun 5 Jan, worthingtheatres.co.uk
