A REVIEW FROM RIVERSIDE CP SCHOOL

On a cold, wet Saturday afternoon, Alternate Shadows Theatre Company came to Rainham's Riverside Primary School & Children's Centre to deliver their own brand of funshine.

Organised by the school for the benefit of the children and their families who attend, Alternate Shadows' production of Beauty and the Beast, written by James Barrie, exceeded expectations with their fantastic set changes and comedy. Their enthusiastic cast were hilarious and lively, with great one-liners and encouraging audience participation.

Four year old Austin summed up the show when he said "I loved the panto. It made me laugh. Smelly was really funny. I liked the bit where we got sprayed with the water pistol and the children dancing on the stage."

AN EMAIL FROM AN AUDIENCE MEMBER

Just wanted to say once more how much my husband and I, and our 2 children, enjoyed Beauty and the Beast yesterday. You pitched it just right for adults and children alike and the audience participation was much enjoyed. We were impressed by the whole cast's performance and very much hope to see you again soon.
