Brilliant, fabulous, I am not a huge fan of panto but I laughed, booed and sung along with everyone else. The theatre is comfy, intermate and airey. The staff were so friendly and helpful as was the theatre manager Trish Washer. Lovely to see the cast greet some of the youngsters after the show, our 8 yr old was in his element, thankyou Shaw theatre we had a lovely afternoon. X

An oustanding production of Cinderella, filled with superb performances. The music and the comedy are performed strongly. Really enjoyed.
My wife and I took our Grand-daughter to Cinderella on Saturday evening. The show was outstanding with fun and laughter from the start to the very end. The entire cast captured the Christmas spirit with audience participation and a traditional sing along. Cinderella and Prince Charming were brilliant along with Button and Francine Lewis. However the night belonged to the Ugly Sisters, having singled me out for some festive fun! The best was to come when the good old fashioned "it's behind you" resulted in both of the Ugly Sister falling off the bench, if only it were part of the script!!! A brilliant show for all the family in a great Theatre. Merry Christmas to the cast of Cinderella at the Shaw Theatre, you certainly made our night one to remember.
I took my grand-daughter to see the Saturday matinee, for the price,I didn't really expect to see such an exceptional panto. Brilliant size theatre, every seat had a great view and the price was excellent. So nice to see such a variety of ages from toddlers to grand parents all enjoying a brilliant performance. well done !
I went to see this panto with a friend - we were trying to find a panto to watch in London - there are not many at all, in fact this is the closest to Central London I could find. A nyway, I was not disappointed whatsoever - what an amazing show! The theatre is intimate, sound quality is great and a great view from wherever you sit. The lighting was superb as were the costumes and set. The comedy was fab throughout, but there was a great balance with the story line - something that unfortunately can get lost in panto with celebrities at risk of making it a 'gag fest'. I would highly recommend seeing this show for all the kids amongst you!
Watch the show on opening night, one the best pantos I,ve seen in years, good all round cast, a live band excellent set, lighting and costume. a great fun evening for all the family. Such a bargin price for such a high quaity show in the centre of london. A great way to get into Christmas.
