Not to be confused with the Disney production, British Pantomime Theatre is a type of musical comedy stage production designed for family entertainment. Modern pantomime includes songs, gags, slapstick comedy and dancing. It employs gender-crossing actors and combines topical humor with a story more or less based on a well-known fairy tale, fable or folk tale. Pantomime is a participatory form of theatre, in which the audience is expected to sing along with certain parts of the music and shout out phrases to the performers.
Rehearsals will be Monday and Wednesday evenings and some Saturday afternoons. All roles are unpaid.
