Pantomime - What is Pantomime?

Bobcaygeon Kawartha Lakes Aladdin Pantomime Casting Call
Pantomime is a traditional style of musical family comic theatre, usually performed around Christmas. The plays are usually fun twists of a familiar children's story with many characters playing cross-dressed parts, strong villain and hero components, and audience participation encouraged with booing, and cheering. Sometimes pantomimes contain satirical political digs that the adults enjoy as well. Pantomime finds its roots in comedia d'el arte, and mummers plays. It is very popular in Britain and English speaking countries that were former colonies.Since Aladdin lamps are few and far between, do you think the genie will emerge when Aladdin polishes up an old outboard motor? The play will be sure to be fun and creative with Sarah Quick of Globus Theatre at the helm.
