Hi everyone,

I was lucky enough to be at the Bristol show tonight... It was bloody fab! The sets were amazing.. I so wanna go back and see it again! It was great to see some old faces - such as : Lance, Barbara , Dean Tavalouris, Les McQueen , Neds, Barry & Lisgoe... :D some excellent scenes! Look out for Geoff in the Santa suit - tee hee!

I'll not spoil anthing, will talk more when others have posted :D Just wanted to say it was excellent... LOG rule!

** It looks like someone has set fire to ur face and has tried putting it out with a fork** :lol:

OMG!!!! Lisgoe & Barry, Dean Travalouris, Geoff, Lance, Les McQueen!

Well I was excited about seeing them before & now.....!

Hayley, I won't ask for spoilers, but please do they drag people up on stage...?

Now I'm seriously thinking of trying to get tickets to their last show (whenever that will be - they may well add more extra dates!) & I'm already going to the Hammersmith Apollo shows twice.

Since this is actually a spoiler thread, could you please post as much detail as possible? If people didn't want to read it, they wouldn't be here. ;)

So, give us a run down of all the sketches please. Also, exactly what merchandise is available to buy?

Sorry! Didn't realise you couldn't view without being a member. Here goes:

A review

But not to give to much away,
and also I havent long to write this.
The Panto is split in two acts.
The first being Communitivity auditions for Legs Akimbo.
The 2nd being a full on Panto!
They save most of the most popular characters for the 2nd act.
But the first half has the surprise return of the Dentons!
And have they got a few surprises!
Herr Lip turns up in the first act,
Along with his favorite Schoolboy.
A number of the newer characters turn up mainly in the first act.
But mostly all the old favorites are there.
In the end they must do near 60 characters!
There are some great musical moments.
Pauline singing "It's raining Pens!!!!
Theres one surprise character who turns up at the end.
But I wont ruin it by revealing who?
Tubbs, Edward, Mickey, Pappa Lazaro, Chinery, and all are all there.
Its non stop Laughter Panto style!
There is one point when a mermber of the audience is pulled out,
on to the stage for our amusement.
It's full of audience Participation.
"It's Behind you!"
Join in!

10/10

And i'm seeing it again saturday!

Oh and buy a programe.
Theyve put together a realy good one.
It will cost you a tenner
But its worth it!
Plus theres plenty of merchandise.
My bank account is feeling worse for wear now and in the red because of it!
They have tshirts for Dole Scum and their like,
Pauline's pens
Precious things (snow globes)
Plenty of Mugs.
They only take cash,
though if you ask they may take cheques?

And all four of them were there,
so if your after Autographs before or after,
they are willing to sign.
I hadnt been sure if Jeremy would have been there,
but he was.



And from another poster:

^What he said.

Milder spoilers










First half was good, Herr Lipp probably being the highlight but lots of favourite characters, some in blink and you'll miss it cameos but all brilliantly portrayed.

Second half, which went into panto mode, stepped up a gear with the entry of Pauline in her dress and the aformentioned musical number plus Micky. Amazing to see all the characters come on so quickly in succession (quick change seems to be their speciality), none of which had been in the first half.
Lots of audience participation in the "Behind you" vein - The "Oh, no you're not" bit was screaminngly funny.

Only bought a programme, as the rest of the merchandise was just too expensive.

Oh, and there was one Doctor Who reference too. What more could you ask for.
Will post more later.

Yes the Merchandise was to expensive,
but that didnt stop me going into the Red!
Had to replace my missing "are you local?" Beanie hat.
A tshirt, precious thing, mug. "I was a mug maybe?"
And a programme.
I'll get that signed today, hopefully.
And see it all again Saturday!

And I forgot about the Doctor Who reference.
Theres one, I dont know if I missed any more subtle ones?

That's all so far, folks...
