Thread Name: Pantomime
Subject: RE: BS: Pantomime
I believe the earliest pantomime in Norwich was in 1774.
The pantomime cow 'Daisy' was really funny. When Jack milked it, each udder played a note,(cue various popular tunes) and eventually a plastic carton of milk arrived from underneath its body. Followed by a large cow pat from its rear end. Jack stuck his finger in the brown blob, tasted it and declared it 'rather nice' then threw it into the audience. (Screams from the children it landed on!)
The Dame did a striptease, and pulled off about ten different negligees to the tune 'The Stripper'. I don't know how he'd managed to wear them all at once. The final item of clothing he was left wearing was a Norwich City football shirt.
It's all such fun and very uplifting in the middle of winter.
