Alan Harris and I attended Blaengarw's Panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rise of the Gobbler.
I haven't attended a Panto since I was little so it was refreshing to have Cyber Men, The Joker, talking vegetables, Del and Rhodney and Darleks in the same production and not get confused by it all. Admittedly there were moments were I didn't have a clue what was going on, but that was the fun of it!

There was an impressive Blodwyn the cow who had to be sold when the President of the United Garw Valley raised the taxes. Alan, however, did point out that if Jack and Dame Molly stopped paying for their sky HD they could have kept Blodwyn!
My favourite moment was when the sprout had to be dragged off by its legs by one of the stage hands before the next scene started.

By the end of the night me and Alan were up dancing after joining in with the 'He's behind yous' and 'Oh no he isn'ts' and also a lot of Booing!

It's fantistic to see such a thriving Workmen's Hall! The cast put a lot of time and effort into making something that the audience and themselves throughly enjoyed. Blaengarw is a place that just gets better and better each time I visit it!

There are still 3 more performances left and I highly recommend that you attend!
