: Qdos produce pantomimes with variety
: entertainers so they deliver VARIETY
: pantomimes. They have never said they
: produce pantomimes that are plot heavy and
: the fact that this debate comes up every
: year and they continue to produce as they do
: means they are very happy with their style
: of show as are the huge audiences that visit
: them. Julian Clary does jokes which are
: innuendo based. If you know Clary and you
: book a ticket to see him in a pantomime
: don't be shocked he doesn't do busy bee.
: Every joke has a double meaning.
: Its worth noting the great Berwick Kaler
: doesn't focus too much on plot either, nor
: is it a variety pantomime. There isn't just
: one style of pantomime.
: The Palladium was a big variety pantomime in
: a famous theatre for variety. Newcastle has
: at its heart two variety entertainers from a
: circus background so people go in their tens
: of thousands for the entertainment factor.
: This can also be said of Edinburgh, Bradford
: and Birmingham - and the common thread that
: ties these together - they are all the most
: popular pantos in the country.

: I've seen many pantomimes from many
: producers over the years but never had I
: managed to see a QDOS production. After
: seeing rave reviews about Dick Whittington
: at the Palladium, I gave into temptation and
: decided to buy a ticket.
: There was no doubt about it the show was
: visually spectacular and was full of
: variety. But I couldn't help feeling that
: some of the jokes went too far and the end
: to the plot was very weak, which left me a
: little underwhelmed.
: Was it just me expecting too much? or is
: this a genral theme of QDOS shows? Do people
: have suggestions of QDOS shows which are
: always brilliant?
