Jack and the Beanstalk
Theatre Royal Windsor

Jack and the Beanstalk
Until January 6
Theatre Royal Windsor

But without doubt, the real star of the show was Kevin Cruise.
The former Britain's Got Talent contestant had brilliant patter with kids in the audience and he got the whole crowd cheering and clapping.
His affable performance style made him an ideal guide for the show and he looked as if he was having as much fun as the crowd. Simon Cowell certainly missed a trick there.

Kevin Cruise – a man born to be in panto - is riotous from the moment he bursts on stage, whipping up the mood so well that before you know it we're all up on our feet dancing Gangnam Style.
His infectious humour is complemented well by Matthew 'Stars in their Eyes' Kelly, who was having a ball as the King of Windsoria, and the fabulous Dame Nellie Trott, played by Steven Blakeley, who also writes and directs.

When I first saw Kevin Cruise on Britain’s Got Talent I thought he was way too OTT and, well, too orange! But his performance in last year’s Windsor panto won me over and, once again, I can only marvel at his all-round showmanship. He’s certainly a hit with the audience.Box Office 01753 853888.

Review by Robin Strapp

Kevin Cruise is outstanding as Simon Trott who has a wonderful rapport with the audience in this his third appearance at the Theatre Royal and the audience absolutely loved him.


 Kevin Cruise has the pivotal role of Simon Trott and watching him revel in it all it's easy to see why he has been invited back for his third Windsor panto. His hilarious monologue giving directions through the environs of Windsor and Slough is tongue-twistingly clever and the disco spoof, complete with 'boy band' is worth the price of the admission ticket alone.
