Like a fine Christmas gravy, Dan and Jeff have seasoned, simmered and reduced the best ingredients of the nation's favourite festive shows into one neatly gift-wrapped package. They career through Cinderella
in 3D including a cameo from the first ever Fairy-Godchicken to grace a West End stage. They dazzle with a Dick Whittington
featuring Jeff as the Mayor of London: blond, posh and receiving just the treatment he deserves (with a large mallet and a custard pie). An astonishing new take on Jeff's favourite panto Aladdin
gives the story a whole new twist, and Daisy the Cow from Jack and the Beanstalk
gives a heart-rending turn as she's led to market. Not to mention the full-scale versions of Snow White
and Sleeping Beauty
which see Dan and Jeff trying to work out not only how two people can play seven dwarves, but also which of them will make the prettiest princess. From conventions and costume to heroes and villains, the dastardly double act explore all the elements of the art form we both love and loathe as a nation.
