Oh yes they did! Panto stars from Chesterfield Theatres brought some festive magic and sparkle to patients on the children’s ward at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.
The Beauty and the Beast cast, including Tina Barrett as Beauty, Jon Moses as the Beast and the Count, and Danny Mills as Madame Fifi, handed out gifts and created mischief on Nightingale Ward.
Tina, formerly of S Club 7, said: “It was just such an amazing experience meeting all the children and giving out presents.
“They were all really happy and excited and everyone had an amazing day. It was a highlight for everyone.”
Jenny Reaney, a play specialist and team leader at the hospital, said: “They were absolutely fantastic and it really helped to lift the spirits of our young patients.”
The panto is at the Pomegranate until January 5.
