“Is this really what we want our children to see?”

Written on: 21/12/2013

It is a while since I went to a pantomime. Family First Entertainments production of Cinderella was the first one i have seen in Bristol. My family and i found the content predominantly unsuitable for children. The first thing to strike us was the commercialism, adverts on the big screen and expensive flashing plastic products. Panto has always had an element of the 'camp' and innuendo, but this was the major part of the whole show and the story of Cinderella was incidental to the silliness… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2008 by fedmaz (2 reviews written)

Cinderella at the Bristol Hippodrome was absolutely fantastic. The singing and dancing was most enjoyable as were the jokes and opportunities of audience participation. Bobby Davro was brilliant and though Mickey Rooney's part was small I was just so thrilled to be actually seeing Mickey Rooney the legendary film star. His wife was a lovely fairy godmother and enjoyed her singing too. Well done all the cast and the Bristol Hippodrome for presenting a super show… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2008

Only complaint would be the price. £90 for the 3 of us was pricy. This included one child where there was no concession due to it being the week after Christmas. Also we had the usual Ticket Master add on which added £12 to the total price. My advice, buy direct from the Hippodrome ticket office… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/12/2008

Go you will enjoy Cinderella at the Bristol Hippodrome, but given the length of it I think younger children could get tired. The singing was excellent from all. The jokes were good and really it is something for everyone. Despite Mickey's reduced role he was a great presence and clearly showed his class. His wife singing was lovely… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2008

Cinderella at the Bristol Hippodrome was pleasant, but amateurish and so a bit disappointed. Bobby Davro seemed disinterested in role,although his"ad libs" were funny . Michelle Collins not scarey at all,dreadful voice in fact most of the cast did not sing well. Funny in parts,but def not the best pantomime i have seen by any means… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2008 by Chris White (1 review written)

I am 61 and have been watching pantomimes since I was about 3 years old, and this is the most fantastic I have ever seen. The effects were magical, the jokes incredibly funny and the ad libbing superb. All of the cast worked tirelessly with amazing results, and my family and I still cannot agree as to whether Button's fall whilst in kangaroo outfit was genuine, or an exceptionally well rehearsed stunt. Plenty of scope was given for audience participation, and I will thoroughly recommend it… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/12/2008 by pantobabe (1 review written)

Loved Cinderella at the Bristol Hippodrome This panto is probably the best one I have ever seen. The sets are great, and the show is full of impact and colour. Cinderella is beautiful and sings and dances like an angel. Prince Charming is truly charming and Bobby Davro is HILARIOUS! Highly recommend it for the 'Christmas Spirit' and the feel good factor… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/12/2008

This pantomime is great. Bobby Davro is great as Buttons and does a good ad lib or three. The sets are stunning and the music is great - lots of up to date tunes..

Mickey Rooney only has a small part. Michelle Collins is great as the nasty stepmother and has a reasonable singing voice.

If you have children, do take them, it's well worth the money and they will enjoy it. My son laughed so much he could not stop in the end… Read Full Review
