Based on the nineteenth century story by the French Countess d'Aulnois the story concerns the heirless King Pat-a-Cake of Euphoria who has three adopted sons.  Seeking a successor he sets them atask, offering the throne to the winner.  Dim-witted Princes Fyne and Dandi squabble over he quest whilst Prince Peerless encounters a beautiful girl on his travels.  She is, in fact, Princess Rosamund, hidden twenty years ago by her distraught parents who believed she would be forced to marry Prince Ghastly by his mother Queen Venoma, who is still searching for her, using her magic powers.  Mother Goose keeps a fairy-watch over the story and is instrumental in hiding Rosamund at the court of the White Cat, Queen of Mysteria.

This new version of the famous Victorian pantomime has all the essential ingredients of modern pantomime from ghost sequences to the Dame and the children's sing-a-long, with the Internet, and e-mail thrown in for good measure!

A possible panto but not one of the best. It meanders a bit and the white cat is the 'good fairy.' with all the supporting group dressed as cats. Funny enough but lacks focus.
