Every year the tradition of Christmas pantomime brings happiness to families, especially children. Pantomimes contains song, dance, comedy, slapstick, magic, innuendo- riddled word-play, cross- dressing, and audience participation. Pantomimes are typically based on traditional children’s fairy stories, and this year, this Christmas; there are a lot of offers. This year sees the largest number of stars taking on lead roles including Henry Winkler playing the crocodyliphobic pirate in Peter Pan at the Richmond Theatre. Aladdin can take you to a magical carpet ride. Rub the magic lamp and enter to this fun fairytale world, along with Jo Brand in Aladdin at the New Wimbledon Theatre.
If one pantomime is not enough, how about ‘The Potted Pantomime’ at the Vaudeville Theatre. This show offers 70 minutes of fun and brings you the best from seven classic pantomimes. Until 5th of January laugh with this great show.
