Last night I attended my first ever ‘Alternative Pantomime’ at the Belgrade Theatre. Billed as a ‘pun-filled night away from the kids’, the Belgrade promises an uplifting evening of christmassy comedy and thats exactly what you get.
The small, all female cast jump between roles (and accents) as quick as lightening and they embody each personality spectacularly. With just the right amount of ridiculousness and enough puns to last till next Christmas, this feisty foursome keep the audience chucking all night long. I found Laura Tipper and Miriam Grace Edwards to be particularly outstanding.
Having had no idea what to expect I was pleasantly surprised by this charming festive treat. A light hearted and uplifting play with an unexpected and touching twist.
Over the Top will be at the Belgrade Theatre until 29th December 2018. For tickets and info click here!
