We saw this at Circa Theatre on Sunday afternoon. I had an outing with Diggy then I met my parents and went to the pantomime.
And I enjoyed it. I remembered that the woman said something and Captain Hook just went “a-ba-da-da-da-da-dib” in a funny voice.
The funny woman looked so silly – her name was Katie Pie – but it was a man dressed up as a woman. And when the music was playing she fell asleep and her head was moving to the music and I thought that was funny.
I wish we were still at the pantomime because it was so good. (Will we be able to go and see it again, dad? But will we? For real?)
In the second half I went up on stage to help save Tinkerbell. The kids had to clap in front of her and we had to show that we believed in fairies – and they played the song ‘Happy’ from Despicable Me 2.
We went to Jack and The Bean Stalk last year but this one was really better. Heaps – it was really better! It was more funnier with more good songs and so cool. Jack and The Bean Stalk was dumb! I never want to see that again.
There were some cool songs including the one that goes “ooga chugga ooga chugga ooga chugga ooga ooga chugga ‘I can’t stop this feeling ooga chugga” and I really liked that one. I made a Spotify playlist after and put this song on there.
Captain Hook was so funny – he had a funny voice and I liked the crocodile that ate him up. He turned from Captain Hook into Captain Cook because he had a hook on one hand and tongs on the other. And he got a job as a chef.
