The pantomime 'Anansi and Goat Head Soup' was a great production from start to finish, with an enthusiastic audience of children of all ages and sizes.

Where else in Jamaica would you find more than two hours of good, clean fun and laughter with delightful, non-amplified music? In the audience, I was another little child again, loving it from start to finish.

I especially loved the animals, so well portrayed, and of course Anansi and his family, not to mention the grand final scene which portrayed some of our cultural heritage.

Hats off to the immense creativity and talent that we so often take for granted: the beautiful sets and costumes, and the amazing antics of the players.

Our culture may yet be saved from rap, dancehall and lewd lyrics!
