Thread Name: Pantomime
Subject: BS: Pantomime
We've just got home from the Theatre Royal in Norwich having been to the Pantomime 'Jack and The Beanstalk'. It was marvellous, with all the traditional elements of a Dame, villain (Wayne Sleep!) and dancers including tiny children who performed beautifully, plus lots of messy slapstick and political asides about the Referendum and President Trump. We shouted, "Oh no it isn't!" and, "It's behind you!" as is expected of the audience.
I'm wondering if other countries such as USA and Australia etc have pantomimes, or is it exclusive to UK?
And have any Brits on here been to the Panto in their town?
