Remember what a jolly time we had last year, why I'm slapping my thighs in anticipation of yet another orgasmic farago of titifilarious, and scrumptious fun.
Once more into your breeches dearest and jolly chums.
Last to join gets to back end of the horse, behind Spaw!!!!

Slap-a my hands slap-a my thighs, da deda de da da

It certainly is Panto time. Herself is rehearsing for a local amateur one which seems to have Aladdin, Buttons and a cow in (so far, I gather Act 2 is still being written!). She is one of two Fairy Godmothers, (own wand, will travel)and there are seven nuns (Sister Sneezy etc) and each part has an understudy. The cast is so large I don't know who is going to be left to be the audience except me, and I don't want to go to all 4 performances!
The nicest thing is our neighbour who had a tracheotomy last year has been given a non-speaking part where he comes on with placards saying "He's behind you" and "Oh no he isn't " etc.
I did offer to play washboard and kazoo in the orchestra but for some reason.....

I am Panto Intacta.

Whe I was at school we did 'Snow White and the Seven Tetley Tea Folk' (Remember them?).   The evil queen had an equally evil henchman named Jago (played by yours truly), named after the now sadly deceased head of English, callked Jim Golland. 'Jago' was all that could be deciphered of his signature.

Sorry. I'm rambling.

Siân: find an excuse to go! either young nephews/nieces, or the local drinking club's children's outing. It is usually a musical experience, and the comedy comes thick and fast (lots of it thick). You will quickly find that it is almost non-stop laughter, but the adults are laughing at a completely different set of gags to those the children are enjoying.

This is a British tradition that should be tried at least once!!

I can remember when the (now defunct) Farningham Folk Club used to put on a panto every year. One year we performed our version of Cinderella with Anne (of Dangerous Curves) in the title role and Barry & Blossom of Skinner's Rats as the Ugly Sisters (I was Buttons).
Strangely enough Blossom has quite small feet and could easily get the golden slipper on - and kept threatening to end the performance by declaring "It Fits !". Ian Petrie (who tends to bring the term "Brick S***house" to mind) was the Fairy Godmother and we sang a shanty while a whole gang of "Stagehands" hauled on a rope pretending to try and "Fly" him.

Oh Yes we did....

Nigel, I've come to think of Panto Intacta (construction of my tights neither here nor there) as being part of my own Unique Selling Proposition, my inner beauty, my ... whatever.

Although I did agree once to take part if our local held a panto night where we all came in costume and made it up as we went along. Didn't happen, so my reputation remains unsullied.

Oooh, take me, I love panto. My kids won't let me go anymore on account of disgracing them by getting over-excited and shouting in the wrong places and batting 5 year olds out of my way to get to the stage and having tantrums if I'm not picked and singing loudly and .....well, you get the idea.What do you mean, you've changed your mind???

Morty - you can come along with us, but you will have to battle it out for the low flying sweets - Jane does a mean flying tackle!
I enjoyed last year's Mudcat Panto - it WAS my fault for starting it after all.....
We don't get enough HIGH CULTURE here ;0}
That said, I think it is a bit early for actually starting a Panto - ( Last year I started the thread on December 14, Mudcat Panto 2001 if you don't start close to Christmas it could just turn into a load of nonsense.... ) - perhaps we could hold auditions for some of the leading roles - Baron Hardup, Puss, the beanstalk, the back end of the cow, etc. etc.
More to the point, we need to train up an audience - we made a start last year with Catspaw and Allan C - at least they know which direction to throw the popcorn........
I think we should start to compile the Mudcat Panto Community Song Album with suitable topical rimes, then we can E-sell copies to interested Americans so that they can join in with all the choruses!
Rubbing hands with anticipation....

Sian, come with me - the Pontesbury Players are known for miles around (well about 3 anyway) for the fantastic effects in their productions, why one year there was smoke AND thunder, and you would really think it was a horse galloping behind the stage.

If you're lucky you could be asked up on stage to hold Buttons (if you get my drift!)

First song

I'm a little teapot short and stout
Here's my handle, here's my spout
Fill me up with tea and hear me shout
Tip me up and pour me out.

This song to be performed with the appropriate actions. Many of you will know these, but I'm not going to describe them for those not in the know. What I want you all to do girls and boys, is work out these actions for yourselves, and then write in and tell your Uncle Giok your moves. There will be a prize for the most original [and clean!] moves.

Get your thinking caps on children.

When I was working up on Teeside we used to do some great pantos with the "Synthonia Players" at ICI Billingham. They had a superb state-of-the-art theatre in those days and wrote some great scripts with fantastic music. One year, the lass who had the part of Jack, found she was pregnant - which rather meant that she couldn't go climbing up beanstalks. Therefore instead of enjoying my usual collection of musical cameo roles, I suddenly found as a male principal boy. Thank god my legs looked good in tights then (Oh no they didn't) and I don't suffer from vertigo - "Look now - see the magic beanstalk....".

I haven't done a panto since the Farningham ones mentioned in a previous posting - I'm beginning to wonder what's happened to my thespian career....

- It's behind you !
