My son and I enjoyed every minute of the show. Lots of laughs and good sing along. Modern enough for the kids but still a touch of good old fashioned Glasgow pantomime nostalgia we loved it and will be booking for this year for sure.

Thoroughly enjoyed the pantomime at the pavilion we enjoy it so much that we travel over from Fife to see the panto for the last 4 years well worth a day out fabulous cast and kept well entertained we loved the glesga shark too.
Susan Davidson
Both myself and two Grandchildren enjoyed the show it was excellent,a bit of everything thrown in to it jokes for adults that would just go over children’s head also plent for them .Wasnt sur my Grandaughter would sit through all of it as she’s only three,but boy was I wrong,she loved it.Lots of bubbles were blown over the place from above,great touch.Will be going back again this year,will not miss a panto as I took my children when they were wee and they always had a fabulous day.

We were there on the 10th January and sat in box b! There was 3 adults a 14 year old and a 4 year old and we all had a ball! What a fab cast this year!! Our faves by far were Bobina (Stephen Purdon) and Gradina (Grado). Those two just made the show! Buttons was Fab too and Glesga shark was a great added bonus!! All the staff at the pavilion do a fab job and this has always been my go to place for pantos since I was a small girl (im 30 now). Cant wait till this years show at the only place to be for panto season! Keep up the good work guys!! Lots of Love xx

Was there yesterday afternoon with my daughter and granddaughter. Had a great time, it was so funny. Thought the production and costumes were brilliant. The ugly sisters were brilliant. I am not usually a great panto lover but this has helped to change my mind. The cast were so hard working to ensure the audience enjoyed themselves. Hopefully will be back next year. Welll done everyone, take a bow !!!

Just been to this Pantomime with Dreghorn Bowling Ladies club and had a fantastic afternoon of entertainment. The patter, constumes and dancing were the best I have seen and I am one if the older generation. The dancers were superb and the younger ones very professional and the lazer show was stunning.

Second time seeing this. Chris Taylor steals the show with his hilarious antics. He has such a lot of talent. We need to have him back in Ayr panto, we shouldn't need to travel to see our local talent. There were 6 of us and everyone loved it.

4 generations of our family came along to the panto today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cast did an amazing job, loads of energy and laughs galore. From my gran to my son there were laughs and interaction with the songs and singalong at the end. The song is still stuck in my head haha. Great work guys and the pavilion looks fabulous ❤️
Susan
Took my 4 year old granddaughter think I enjoyed it as much as she did was absolutely brilliant a laugh for all ages
Rachael Campbell
The show and cast were AMAZING. So very funny. Pavilion staff could not have been more helpful. Welcome back to this wonderful theatre.
Katrina H McDonald
Loved Cinderella this evening(Friday the 28th). A fun filled show from start to finish. I came through from Edinburgh with my adult son and we were both fully engaged from start to finish. Liam Dolan was brilliantly cast as buttons and obviously loved performing the part, I'd like half his energy. Joyce Falconer was a wonderful baddie. Her make-up was amazing too as it must be difficult to make a bonnie woman so hard and evil looking. I loved the Baron and although I must declare a vested interest because I have seen Clark Stewart perform many a time I was a little disappointed that we didn't hear more of his lovely singing voice. What I did see and hear was fantastic but I wish his song hadn't been cut however funny Gradina and Boabina were. I liked the show so much in fact that prior to writing this I just bought myself another ticket! My congratulations to all involved and thank you for fantastic entertainment.
Caroline Ann Allan
went on december 23rd with my partner & 7 year old son and have to say it was beyond awesome! fantastic job all round by cast and the crew who help make it such a memorable night! can't wait till next year already xx

Mark Kemp
Brilliant wee day out and what a laugh the show was well done
Anna King
My partner and I took my 7 year old Grandaughter to see Cinderella on 27 December 18 evening performance. It was a fantastic show and I was amazed at the beautiful costumes and stage settings. We had a really good night laughing and joining in with the singing and dancing. We visit your pants every year but I think this was the best one yet. Freya told her mummy it was a fantastic show. Thank you again for making our night memorable. Well done to everyone at the Pavillion Theatre.
Wilma Macdonald
We are just home from the panto and we had a fantastic time. I have seen 3 pantos this year and Thisbe was undoubtedly the best. We saw Cinderella in the armadillo and it was not a patch on the pavilion! Brilliant show!
Geraldine
This is the best show I have seen in a long time. The special effects had the wee ones enthralled and the innuendo kept the adults in hysterics. Well done Pavilion, you have surpassed yourselves x

Just love Liam Dolan as Fransie, but as Buttons in Cinderella he is Amazing. He is one funny guy and could watch him all day, but back to Cinderella, went Saturday 22nd Dec with my daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter the best panto ever. Every one on stage were amazing. I am Not Biased, but River City is my favourite soap so with some of the cast in this panto just made it better. Keep up the good work guys

What a great day my family had at the panto today. The show was fantastic. Well done to everyone involved, we all enjoyed it. What a great voice Holly has
Louise Colman
Hi, my husband and I travelled from Lauder in the Borders to see your Panto last week and enjoyed it very much. I thought the costumes and the headdresses worn by the Cinderella were brilliant, there was only one thing disappointing and that was when the Baron sang in the first half his voice was drowned out with the music as it was too loud then in the second half he started to sing again and he was cut off mid way through. We thought the Baron had an amazing voice and it would have been good to hear him sing a number straight through himself.
Jennie Smith
brillant from start to finish we all laughed till we cried
Evelyn Stenson
