The Bodyguard (Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham)
2 Sheila Dicks
24th Jan 20: Unique experience What would have been a very pleasant afternoon was ruined by the excessive volume of the sound system. I play in a big orchestra so no things can get loud but this level was painful to the ears and the voices of the singers was distorted. It had to be damoging to people,s hearing I was part of a group and everyone found the sound unpleasant

27th Dec 19: We went to see this earlier today (Boxing Day) with my 2 children (8 and 10), wife and mum and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The songs are great, as were the gags, the stage presence and atmosphere. A great afternoon out for our family, enjoyed by each and every one. Fabulous.

Aladdin (Anvil Arts, Basingstoke)
3 Pat Webb
20th Dec 19: Somewhat disappointed with the panto this year. I took 2 children aged 7 and 4. The first half was too long and with far too much inuendo which wasn't even funny but went right over the heads of the children. Aladdin was very good and sang surprisingly well. The dancers were great as were all the costumes. Some of the song were not 'bouncy'enough for the children. The second half was much more child orientated and kept their attention really well with opportunities to join in and slap-dash which although quite good, didn't last any time at all. The 4 year old really enjoyed the second half but the 7 year old was more critical as was I!
