Peter Duncan's Panto's are brilliant

I've seen Peter's Panto's in Oxford and they are fantastic. Can't wait to see this.
Rita Smith

Very excited

Love pants and Peter is a great actor/producer. I can’t wait for this and knowing it supports youth theatre and Scouts is a bonus. Just wondering when the online activity pack is available

Fantastic fun

A fantastic pantomime for all the family. Such good fun! My boys enjoyed it so much and loved joining in. Has really made it feel like Christmas time!
Katy Dibley-Zayac

charming and fun, a pleasure to watch

Considering the current limitations ......far exceeded my expectations. Positive songs, cute moments, whimsy, humour (for both children and adults), a proper plot, excellent acting, lots of traditional panto. Highly recommended
Rosalind Short

Fabulous

We had such a lovely time together watching this show. We live abroad now so it was a real piece of home whilw we can't travwl. Wonderful cast, thanks for the laughs.
Lynne Chan

Panto online

This is definitely a must see!! It was an absolute giggle from start to finish. Loved how there was interaction so you could shout at the tv (as if you would at the theatre) and it had humour for both children and adults. Will be watching this again, well done to all the cast for creating this magical panto.
Stephanie Hewitt

Wonderful

Loved this from start to finish. All the usual ingredients including the sing a long prior to the finale, say it again routine and loads of audience participation. Certainly made up for my cancelled annual panto visits. Giggled from start to finish all by myself.
Marilyn Marshall

Fabulous Festive Fun

Smiled from ear to ear, kids loved it and so did we. Just what we needed! Well done!
Debbie Gowland

Wonderful!

My kids loved this! No need to miss seeing a Christmas panto just because of the virus. Great production and much needed smile at the end of a tough year. x
Laura Fopp

Fantastic Lockdown Panto!!!

Everything you would expect from a panto and more! Peter Duncan's panto is just what you and your family need to get you into the Xmas panto atmosphere and from the comfort of your home. Extremely clever and brilliantly made! MORE!!
Renee Giles

Absolutely Bonkers (in a good way)

I loved this pantomime! Would really recommend it. I really enjoyed how it included lots of things that are currently going on in the world (plastic, equality, lockdown, election, etc.). Something great for all of the family. Hilarity! Madness! All round good show! (Also, what was that rat dog wolf thing hybrid?) Especially loved Peter Duncan! Did an amazing job.

What is a Panto?

Sorry, but I’m in the USA and have no idea. It sounds like a fun show. Can you price a discount price for the US users via PayPal? Perhaps $25 dollars instead of £25 pounds?

Can’t wait to watch on 23rd with the family 🎄.... I might sneak a peak first - very easy to book

Wonderful Panto

To bring the end to an usual year This panto brought some merry good cheer We sat on the sofa with a large glass in hand Clapping and cheering we merrily sang. We booed and we hissed at the evils bad guys While we munched on the warm mincemeat pies What a wonderful way to end our festive day We deliver a rhyme to voice and to say What a wonderful panto! Oh yes it is!!!!
Gordon Diack

Great online Pato

Richard Gregg

A Little Ray of Sunshine

Our annual visit to the Panto was cancelled this year because of the dreaded lurgy and we luckily found this online. What a delight! A real ray of sunshine in a dark and dreary year. We booed and hissed and cheered and sang badly and ate ice cream. What else could you ask for? Huge fun - oh yes it was. Thank you Peter Duncan and team!
Nicki McCarney

Ode to a Panto

Fake Reviews Surely

We have a mixed age of children from 6 to 12 and none of them were impressed with this, neither were we. But seems you only post five star reviews so quite pointless writing this. Awful issues streaming, unreliable website navigation, pantomime with very few jokes and certainly none memorable. No expense spared with the props either. Wouldn’t buy this ever ever ever again. So poor.
Tony Dow

Great fun!

We watched this en famille with our grown-up son and his girlfriend and what a joy it was! We laughed out loud at the hilarious and ridiculous situations. The characters are endearing and the jokes, often corny and with double entendre, were perfect for an online panto. It is a brilliant stand-in for the real thing and thoroughly enjoyable. A triumph!
Monique Francis

A festive triumph!

Huge thanks to all involved in producing this fabulous pantomime under such challenging circumstances. Panto is such a special part of Christmas, it was a real joy to be able to enjoy it from home and it definitely helped us feel more festive- a triumph!
Sophie OSullivan

Exceeded expectations

We have six children aged from 6 to 17, we all enjoyed the panto. We haven't been able to go to our usual annual performance but found this more than made up for it. We did have some technical issues but the show itself is fantastic! Thank you 😊
Rebecca McDonnell

LIGHTHEARTED FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

We watched it with our two granddaughters 6 and 4, it was such fun sharing their delight at watching their first pantomime. They were dancing and singing along and shouting at the screen, along with us. There were parts that they wanted to see again and as it was a film we could rewind it. It was fabulous, lots of silly fun and we loved it. They are still doing the 'Right-to' joke! J Stafford
Judy Stafford

Panto comes to America!

Thanks for sending this to Boston when I can't always get back home during the Panto season! Wonderful cast - wonderful fun! Well done, Peter!!!
Peter Rombult

Fab Family Fun

Thank you to Peter Duncan and his amazing cast. We were sad not to be able go to a pantomime this year but this has filled that gap with all the fun and frolics and we certainly joined in from our lounge - oh, yes we did!! Huge congratulations and hope you are all safe and well. Happy New Year xx
Katharine Redfern

Fantastic

In the safety of our lounge even our teenage children booed, cheered and sang along! Thank you PD & Team for cheering up Christmas.
Matthew Ray

A grand end to a pants year!

Brilliant fun to watch and cheer ourselves up! Excellent panto. Thank you
Sarah Luff

Really captured the feeling of Panto, brilliant effort!

Watched on New Years Day.... great production and really got the feeling of a true panto experience!
Katie Nykanen

To the person who wrote 'Fake Reviews Surely'

Evidently doean't know real panto. The Palladium may have more money to spend but still expects people to boo and hiss, call 'behind you' have the song. Enjoyed the version of 'If I was apon the Stage'. Done it several times and it requires much practice to get right. i've made props, helped with costumesand we have people who write a new script each year much like Jack. And people come back year after year. Thank Peter for haviing the idea and Brightening Xmas
Mary Holton

Wonderful!

We are vulnerable pensioners who have been in lock down since February. We were bought the pantomime for Christmas- and it was wonderful! Such an original idea to have it staged in the garden and no need for 'celebrities ' that can't act or sing and yet take centre stage. Jack and the Beanstalk was funny and entertaining. The quality of the streaming was excellent and we could hear every word. We have watched it 3 times already and enjoy it everytime. Thank you for cheering us up, for allowing us to participate, and for making our Christmas special. Beryl and Richard South Wales

Cant view

Ive been very disappointed bought for us to watch as a family but only my 3 year old has viewed on my iphone as it will not work through Tv either on fire stick/ PS4 or via computer HDMI cable. I have emailed with my disappointment to only be told its my internet connection. But my internet connection is fine as we have streamed other Local Pantos over christmas on the Tv no issues and my husband uses the internet daily for him working from home with no issues. Its such a shame as it looks like it would be a great show but my daughter only watches the same bit on repeat as on iphone she can easily work it.
Sara Bona-Dobson

Fantastic stuff.

Our granddaughter Ruby loved it and so did we. Well done to everyone involved, we thought we would have to go without a panto this year, you saved the day, thank you.
Nicholas Miller

Giant Blunderbore is in a terrible rage. He shouts from above threatening to eat any villager who won’t pay their rent. Poor Dame Trott has to sell her precious cow ‘Buttercup’ and sends her son Jack to the cow market. All he comes back with is a worthless bag of beans. Jill, the grumpy Squire's daughter is kidnapped by the Giant's dogsbody Fleshcreepy and taken to the castle in the clouds.

Will Jack be the hero, climb the beanstalk, rescue his girlfriend and save the world from the human chomping ogre? Only the magical Garden Fairy knows the answer to that….
