Absolutely fantastic. The patter was brilliant. The actors were amazing.

Went to see Aladdin on the 14/1/22 with my friend and my granddaughter wow what a performance we couldn’t stop laughing. We absolutely love panto time at the Pavilion theatre the best in Scotland. Ping and Pong were hilarious loved it when Abeneezer lifted Ping off the floor so funny can’t wait till this years, great to see Nicola Park looking so well don’t ever get rid of Stephen Purdon and Grado what a comedy act.

Congratulations on another wonderful Panto - was at Aladdin last night. I've not laughed so much for a while and they do say laughter is the best medicine. My friend, who was celebrating her 90th birthday thoroughly enjoyed her evening. My only regret was that due to circumstances at the time I was unable to bring my great grandson to the show - he would have loved it - roll on next Christmas. I would recommend that if you can try to get to the Panto before it finishes on Sunday you'll love it.
Anne Scott
Honestly one of the best pantos we have seen. This is our second visit it was so good we seen it twice. The full family came tonight and everyone loved it. Special shout out to ping and pong we laughed all night. Get yourself along to see it the whole cast were fab. Thanks guys for a fabulous night.

Another fabulous panto, we came on the 5th January and back again tonight as the kids loved it. They laughed just as much as the 1st time. The whole cast were absolutely amazing. Can't wait for the next one. x

What a wonderful afternoon we had at the pantomime yesterday. From start to finish. I’ve not laughed so much in a long time if anything can lift your spirits then this pantomime should be on prescription. Home grown talent everyone is a star .All familiar faces .This pantomime should not be missed .cant wait till the next one .Thankyou everyone just what we all needed ❤️

Lynne Clark
A Wednesday night in January was certainly brightened up with the stage LED display. Haven seen a few Pantos this year your tech presentation was the highlight of 22/23 season. Well done!
Tom mc Shane
Best pantomime I have seen for years. Fairly cheered us all up and we laughed from start to finish (especially at Bing and Bong) Great costumes, music, singing and dancing and the Best Baddie in Glasgow he was fantastic . We will be back next year well done everybody.

Went to see The Magical Adventures of Aladdin with my daughter.We come every year. This was definitely the best yet. We laughed from start to finish. The whole cast were brilliant. Especially Ping and Pong absolutely hilarious. Well done everyone also all staff very helpful
Georgia McGill
Had a great night at the Pavilion last night, watching The Magical Adventures of Aladdin with my family. We come every year, and whilst we are never disappointed, this year's show was definitely one of the best.
Margaret Watson
Liam Dolan earns his money on this production for me covering many roles with such gusto and engagement of the audience. The entire cast have an array of costumes and this years panto perhaps for me more dance, song and a fair helping of slapstick led by the usual suspects. The story line has moved away this year from traditional panto as I would see it which I missed a bit. Great show and absolutely delighted to see a full house which really adds to the atmosphere and experience.
Donald Reid
Had a fantastic night once again at the Pavilion. Everyone of the cast where amazing. We always do Hogmanay but due to the kids being unwell had to reschedule. I'm hoping the Pavilion stays open as its the best Panto theatre. We would like to thank everyone in the show and the staff for another fantastic night. Ty. Mary Karah Shelby and wee Leo x

Whole family come every year, after saving all year. everyone was fantastic. So funny! Always love Grado and Stephen Purden together as a duo, the way they bounce off each other.

Brilliant show on the 3rd January. Brought my mum & dad as a wee treat, it was what they needed. Laughed all the way through entertainment at its best. my mum has been battling pancreatic cancer for 6 months, so having her out and enjoying herself making fabulous memories is what we all needed. Thanks to everyone for the best time. I would also like to thank a member of staff CHRIS, who helped with my dads wheelchair. Chris you are an asset to the Pavilion, your customer service skills were fantastic, you made us feel at ease and took the stress away. Thank you.

What a fantastic afternoon we all had, I took my daughter and her daughter, this was the first time for my granddaughter, she had been to a pantomime in a theatre she has seen one in school but never in a theatre she said that the theatre was magical , when the performers came on stage she was just mesmerised , when the snow came down she was loving it saying too her mum this is just magic. I have promised that we will be back.

Anne greig
The Pavilion Theatre thank you for (as always) a wonderful show. I for one think It was a wonderful thing to do to help food banks in this current situation and it allowed many families to attend on those nights who otherwise may not have been able to. Some people need to remember if they can't say anything nice, they shouldn't say anything at all. Goodluck with the rest of the shows (https://www.facebook.com/paviliontheatre/)

All eleven of us thoroughly enjoyed it. It was so good to be back in the theatre and seeing adults and children alike socialising and having a great time. Normality for all of us !!
