Burnley mechanics Visit: April 2016
The Easter panto Beauty and the Beast by Anton Bensons productions featured at the Burnley Mechanics it was an eggstravaganza and really was not a night to be missed. Beauty and the Beast may be a tale as old as time, but it was brought into the twenty first century with a comical bang or as Basil would say “Boom Boom”!
Recently, pantos have gone beyond the line when trying to please both children and adults within the audience. However, this production really did strike the right balance between family fun with an appropriate mix of subtle adult humour and slapstick comic capers. The Panto was the typical comic cliché based on a fairy tale that included all the common characters expected…oh no it didn’t….oh yes it did!
