    Pantomimes in general are good clean family fun where the audience roots for the good guys and boos the villains. They are very tongue in cheek and any actor/actress or household name that participates is there purely for the fun.

    Priscilla didn't sing Trouble to disrespect Elvis in any way, she was there to do a job. She was asked to sing it and she agreed. Please remember panto is supposed to be fun.

    Priscilla took this job as an actress and she gets paid.

    It's a job for her the producers asked her to do it so she did.

    The producers of this play are her boss.

    I agree with you Jen, but Pris?
    I got the impression that she has no respect for herself
    No! I can not look at her, it is no longer fun when she needs

    Honestly Evi I think this is one thing that has been lost in translation. Pantomimes are fun and the people starring in them send themselves up a bit (make fun of themselves), it really is just lighthearted entertainment and no feelings are supposed to be hurt during it.

    We get a few stars from the US every year taking part in pantos because once they "get" what it's about, they genuinely find the whole experience fun. Imagine another actress playing the part Priscilla is and then imagine the alternate actress singing Trouble, no one would find that odd or disrespectful, the producers are just capitalizing on her connection and the song fits the character being trouble for snow white.

    it's all in all a fun performance (which we see in poor quality). Priscilla does a cool job, for someone who is not a singer to begin with.

    Very daring, not a good performance, but that's not the intention at all. She did the right thing.

    It's just Panto. I'm sure it's a fun show. I've been to our local Panto with our children but this one is a little too far otherwise I would go.

    Thank God some people on here like you are reasonable and can take a joke. She is supposed to be "pretentious" she is playing an evil queen and that is the joke, geez some people need to lighten up. It is kind of like Ursula from "Little Mermaid".

    I can see how Priscilla playing an evil queen can be taken as a joke.
