Snow White – The Pantomime

Snow White - the pantomime

SNOW WHITE – THE PANTOMIME

”Once upon a time, long ago, there lived a King and his Queen. They lived in a fine palace and all was bountiful and plenty in the land. The King and Queen were loved dearly by their subjects and everyone was very happy when the Queen gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter. Her skin was as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony. ‘

A few years later, Snow White’s father, the king, took a new wife called Malice. She was a very beautiful, but a wicked and vain woman and was actually a wicked sorceress, famed for making spells and poisons and she spent hours working on potions to make herself beautiful in Snow White – The Pantomime.”

And so it begins. Watch as the mirror breaks the horrible news to Malice that Snow White rivals her in beauty. Then as Malice tries again and again to kill young Snow White and fails. Young Snow White, beloved by many in the village is protected by Dolly, The Resident Dame and the seven dwarves. But… take care, the two village idiots, Squint and Wink may be working for both sides – good and bad! Malice may be planning to use them to carry out her dirty work. It’s no wonder she fails every time with those two on board!

REVIEW: It’s hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing. What else can I say? It has everything you would want in a panto in just the right amount, not too much, not too little. The puns are horrible, the queen mean, the dwarves cute, the prince charming, and the songs go beautifully with the story. Lots of audience participation which the kids will love. From the director’s viewpoint, the sound effects are imaginative and not difficult to stage, the stage directions are comprehensive and there are lots of places for her/him to use local or current colour or topics. – Tom Considine, fellow writer.

Aladdin the pantomime

ALADDIN THE PANTOMIME

In Aladdin the pantomime, Abanazer, the wicked one seeks an infamous lamp hidden in a land far far away. Rumour has it that the lamp contains a powerful Genie who can help him rule the world. But he has no idea how to find it. Undeterred, he rings up the Slave of the Ring Hotline for help. The bimbo on the helpdesk checks her computer and informs him that yes, such a cave exists and no, he cannot enter it himself. There is only one in the whole world who can do it. His name? Aladdin. Location? Peking, China. China? That’s a bit far!

So Abanazer sets out on a journey. Aladdin, on the other side of the world is currently running for his life because he set eyes on the beautiful princess. Naturally this means he must die. But since he has no immediate plans to do this, running away seems to be the best option. Other than marrying the Princess of course. But that sort of thing doesn’t happen to young men whose mother, the Widow Twankey (currently unattached, available and let’s face it, slightly manly) owns the local laundromat. Nope. He’d have to come into a large fortune to do that.

Which is exactly what Abanazer promises him to get him to go to the cave. However, once they’re in the cave it all goes wrong. Aladdin finds the treasure and wants to send that up first, but wicked Abanazer only wants the lamp and seals Aladdin inside the cave in a rage. Leaving him with the lamp and a massive amount of treasure. The rest? Well, why don’t you have a little read and find out!
