“The productions at the Prince's Theatre NEVER disappoint me! We always look forward to going knowing it will be a fantastic show and it always is. This year's panto was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable, can't wait to see Cinderella there next Christmas! The staff are always friendly, approachable and helpful plus the venue is always clean and tidy. It is always a pleasure to visit the Prince's Theatre!” - Emma W.

“We visited yesterday to see Jack and The Beanstalk the panto and laughed throughout. The tickets were reasonably priced at £15 each and we will be back next year for Cinderella!” - Stephanie L.

“How easily accessible it was for my daughter who is in a wheelchair. We watched the Panto and I have never laughed so much. Highly recommend and the staff were very welcoming and friendly :)”- Teresa D.

“Great night out, all 10 of us ages ranging 70 to 5 thoroughly enjoyed the show (thank you Wally the kids are still singing THAT song). Everything clean and very well organised, once again Thank you for a great night out.”- Sharon N.

Alex Porter, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism at Tendring District Council, which runs the Princes Theatre, said the reviews were not a surprise.

“Anton Benson Productions always put on a fabulous performance, and having seen this year’s show I can attest to just how brilliant Jack and the Beanstalk is,” Councillor Porter said.

“Gemma, in both her acting role and as director, and all of the cast have done a terrific job and these reviews are just recognition for all of their hard work.

“If you’ve not yet booked your tickets then what are you waiting for – all of these people can’t be wrong, but don’t take their word for it come and see the show for yourself.”

Tickets cost £15 (£14 concessions) or £52 for a family of four, and are available from www.princestheatre.co.uk or on 01255 686633 (option 1).
