With the venue packed to the rafters, this years RVT PANTO  was off and running with a cast that were  clearly  in  ‘Hi Energy’  mode. Aided by a very funny script  written by Paul Daly and directed by a master of his craft , Mr Tim McArthur , he  got from his cast performances that took the venue by storm. Vinegar Strokes at Twankey,( pronounced without the use of the letter T)  got the ball rolling by a  rendition of 9 -5 , with deliberately change in the lyrics  that completely set the tone for the next 115 minutes of pure smut and general debauchery . Vinegar is a very skilled performer and her ability to maintain a running gag is nothing short of brilliant. Faye Reeves is to be totally congratulated in keeping the whole thing together , playing numerous roles  and was a complete crowd pleaser. She shined in her role and got the well deserved laughs. The standout though was Miss Topsie Redfern as the witch , her vocal ability is off the charts. Her larger than life persona was ideally suited to playing a role that she was clearly relishing .  Chris Draper as the eponymous Dick and Martin Fitch as the Prince  added a true sense of style to the panto that totally enthralled an audience that were loving every minute of it. This is a show with a huge feel-good quality to it. Pure Pantomine  perfection  does not come much better than this.
