"The show has everything. Its script is funny/arch/clever; its cast is standing ovation wonderful . . . the show keeps its audience happily involved (laughing, mostly) for every one of its ninety minutes. It's a kids show which both kids and adults will love. Greg Palmer's adaptation is non-stop hilarious."
- Wayne Johnson, The Seattle Times

"Puss-itively enchanting," as one Canadian headline writer described a production in Edmonton. A funny funny version of this traditional tale--much of the humor attributable to the style of English Panto in which (like The Big Bad Wolf) the script is written. The Queen (the "Pantomime Dame") is played by a man, the handsome prince by a woman, fairies talk in rhyme, and a principal character is a man in a cat suit. The songs include "Hail to the Queen," "Hail to Puss," and "Love is New to Me."
