Pantomime lights the way

The annual pantomime A Lad ’n a Lamp had its opening night at the Guild Theatre on Monday to a packed audience.

The show started 15 years ago, but took a five-year hiatus and is now in its 11th year running.

Audiences can expect surprise interactions, with the crowd, a unique script with a South African touch, beautiful costumes and wonderful voices.

Production team member Sonwa Sakuba said that after weeks of practice, opening night came together beautifully.

“The cast worked very hard, and we’re happy with the response from the first night. We had a lovely interactive crowd with a nice energy – that’s the magic of pantomime.”

Acting as Aladdin, Daniel Anderson came with an electrifying performance and didn’t disappoint the crowd.

“I’m privileged and happy for the responsive crowd that came through to support the show,” Anderson said.

Audiences can expect surprise interactions, with the crowd, a unique script with a South African touch, beautiful costumes and wonderful voices.

One audience member show attendee said she had come to support her grandson and will “definitely come and see it again”.

The magical pantomime for the whole family still runs until Friday.

It then resumes on December 20 until December 23. Tickets, as well as block booking of 10 or more people are available through on Computicket.
