'Dick Whittington' Reviews Round-Up


The annual Christmas show means that Christmas one of the Torch’s busiest and most exciting times of the year – last year nearly 12,000 people saw the Torch Theatre Company’s pantomime of Sleeping Beauty – and this year’s production of Dick Whittington looks to be no exception. Already a five star hit with schools audiences and theatre critics alike, here’s what reviewers had to say about the show:

 

"It’s the Torch’s panto, undoubtedly the best on planet earth, which never fails to blow the dust off of your soul…. " - Buzz Magazine

 

"This Christmas The Torch has delivered what must be one of the best value live family entertainment shows in Wales. Not to be missed." - Pembrokeshire Herald

 

"Gorgeous on the eyes, the ears and the soul, this year’s Dick Whittington is an escapist two-hour mesmeric mirage, bursting with wit, warmth and invention; and, of course, a very healthy dusting of double entendre." - Wales Online

 

"The Torch’s ‘Whittington’ is modern yet traditional, spectacular yet intimate, oozing the sort of charm and elusive chemistry big city pantos with their bolt-on celebs can never match." – Theatre in Wales

 

"a delightful journey of magic, mischief and mayhem for the modern age... From the very beginning the production is colourful and interactive, the actors energised and enthusiastic, encouraging the audience to join in, in true pantomime style." - Arts Scene In Wales

 

"With an array of fabulous costumes, imaginative sets and a script bursting with one-liners and traditional panto gags, there is plenty for audiences of all ages to enjoy!… Top-notch whimsical designs come from Sean Crowley, with enchanting lighting design by Ceri James, and gripping action choreographed by fight director Kevin McCurdy, all providing a recipe for a heart-warming and joyful experience this festive period.” - Tenby Observer
