MUSICAL PLAY SCRIPTS AND PANTOMIMES
Musical play scripts with both original music and music from your favourite musical shows.
Wotcha! Gotcha! – steam punk funny pantomime set in Victorian London.
What is the difference between a pantomime and a musical play? A pantomime is a funny version of one of the classic fairy tales, such as The Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. Traditional pantomime scripts usually have a ”Dame” in the cast, who is a woman traditionally played by a male actor.
There are always songs in the pantomime script, which are usually chosen at the director’s discretion, although some scripts have songs written in. Most of the pantomime scripts stocked by Off The Wall Plays have show tunes and/or popular songs already cleverly adapted for the story itself, so it can save some on music choice. But in the end it is up to the director to use the music they prefer. The songs are often chosen from popular music or show tunes. As a difference, a ”musical” will often contain original music, and be either a drama, love story, historical play or comedy.
At Off The Wall Plays, we are constantly on the lookout for musical play scripts and pantomimes. If you have one lying dormant in a drawer somewhere, send it in – it could be published!!
