Superb panto, excellent cast and lots of fun for all the family. Little ones loved joining in to floss, and older ones got most of the jokes. It had a real family feel to it, and not one overpaid C-list celebrity in sight!

For many years my wife and I have been annual subscribers at the Little Theatre in Southport.Each year they put on at least Eight plays and the very popular pantomime. The teatre is modern and comfortable with a attractive bar charging reasonable prices.
