"A beautiful job, not only offering fun and jokes for the entire family, but also by making you feel part of the story.

The cast gave a high-energy performance, bringing Aberdeen’s identity to life. If there’s one panto you’re mulling over seeing this holiday season, make it Jack and the Beanstalk."
