Albert loves to tell stories of his exploits during World War II and after. Although his great-grandson Bryan listens politely, he’s not quite sure things really happened that way! And when Albert, who is about to turn 100, spins a fantastical tale about Her Majesty The Queen coming to visit, the whole family is naturally skeptical. A heartwarming comedy about family and honor. Suitable for ages 12 and up.
A traditional British panto - a tale told in the style of a melodrama with wacky characters, songs, dances, corny jokes and oodles of audience participation. Suitable for all ages.
"I still remember the first time I took my boys, who were so little at the time, to our first panto put on here by Theatre Britain in 2002. "Remember to sit still and not to say a word during the show," I told them on our way to the theater. So what was the first thing that happened? The narrator starts talking directly to the kids, urging them to boo the villain and cheer the hero. And then there was the singalong!
A panto, I soon realized, is all about letting go, having fun and sharing an experience with the actors. No wonder it's such a holiday must in England, where it brings parents and kids and the community together in common merriment." Nancy Churnin, The Dallas Morning News
