On the 2nd January 2015, 97 Cerebra families took their seats at the Sunderland Empire and settled down to watch and interact with a fantastic performance of the Pantomime Snow White.
As you would expect, the wicked Queen (Sue Pollard of Hi-de-Hi fame) was heckled mercilessly by the kids and Muddles (PC Plum from Balamory) was cheered every time he appeared.
Slapstick and antics followed and the place rocked with laughter and mayhem! Twelve Days of Christmas had never sounded so good – especially when everything went a bit wrong! The roof was raised when the Ghosts and Ghouls made an appearance and spirited away Prince Charming and Muddles and left Nurse Penny Well all alone – they did not know that they were ‘behind you’ it seems!
One parent told us how much she and her child enjoyed the performance: “It was a fabulous show and we all really enjoyed ourselves! It has encouraged us to attend similar events in the region so we are really looking forward to our next Panto thanks to Cerebra.”
“Thank you so much for the tickets to see Snow White Panto – it was fabulous! James sat still throughout, which is an added bonus and seats were just perfect,” another said.
We also had a very positive response on Facebook with many more parents sharing how much of a good time they had: “Lovely afternoon at the relaxed pantomime for children today. Lovely crowd and big thanks to Shona Chambers from Cerebra for our tickets,” one Facebook user posted on Cerebra’s page.
Cerebra Regional Officers arranged free tickets for our families at several Pantomime’s around the country over the festive period and you can keep up to date with all of our latest events on our What’s On page.
