Director Daryn Crosbie, who has been involved in 14 of Gaiety’s pantomimes to date, said it was “a pleasure to be back”.

“The audience reaction was unrealistic. Mr Crosbie said: “We have kids screaming every morning and evening.

“Obviously they’re glad it’s back because it’s a tradition for many people, part of their Christmas celebrations and to miss it, it’s heartbreaking to lose so many viewers who didn’t get to see a show. Great product.”

“We all know that kids can be too glued to their phones and TV screens but to watch something live in front of them, you can feel their enthusiasm and fear about it. the ‘Is that really in front of me?’ It’s been a great process to be a part of it.”
