Louise Beresford & Anna Spearpoint

Anna and Louise met whilst performing in last year's Theatre503 panto, 'Cinderella and the Beanstalk'. After months gazing lovingly into each other’s funny bones, and nearly reaching breaking point in arguments about whether Die Hard is a Christmas film (Anna: It's not.) (Lou: It Is.) (Anna: I'm writing this bit of the bio, so it's not.), they decided to join forces and make funny things with a swanky title, Louisiana.

Wholesomely joyous and bitingly witty, genuinely for the whole family. You don’t even need to take a kid as an excuse.

★★★★★ – My 2 girls (6&3) absolutely loved it, so much so my 6 year old wanted to stay for the evening performance. I loved the ethos of the show. It so nice to see a family pantomime where I don’t have to worry about the content and where we were all, as a family thoroughly entertained. Thank you so much and I look forward to next years panto… that is if I can get my 6 year old to stop asking to go back and see this one again!

★★★★★ – Thought it was hilarious!

★★★★★ – It was so well done, the girls were amazing!
