A successful pantomime or "panto" will usually contain most if not all of the following: (click each image for more details)

Pantomime Opening Pantomime Dame Principal Boy or Girl

Every Pantomime needs an opening, usually with the Baddy- beit the Demon King in ‘Cinderella’, King Rat in ‘Dick Whittington’ or Abenazar in ‘Aladdin’ – Always entering Stage Left! And every pantomime also needs a Dame, or even two, if you choose ‘Cinderella’. What is it about British actors and drag? But whatever it is, follow the steps of Sir Ian McKellern and play the pantomime dame! The pantomime Principal Boy - traditionally a girl, particularly if her legs look good in tights, though more and more professional pantomimes are opting for male Principal Boys. Stick with tradition! Girl Power!
The Hapless hero Baddies Brokers Men

The hero of so many pantos is reluctant, shy and often lazy; in other words, a typical English lad! Jack or Dick, Robin, Aladdin and most especially, ‘Cinderella’s Buttons, all win over the pantomime audience in the end.
We love to hate the pantomime baddy. ‘Hiss!’- ‘Boo!’. All good theatre thrives on conflict and there is nothing better than pantomime! Brokers Men - Chinese police
And if the pantomime Dame isn’t comedy enough, there is usually a pair of idiots, the Broker’s Men, the Chinese Police, the Sheriff’s Henchmen, depending on which pantomime you choose, to add to the confusion and laughter!
Fairies and other supernaturals Old Jokes Music
And in case the mere mortals are in danger of not living happily ever after, there is always the Fairy Godmother to add a bit of magic to the panto. Pantomimes traditionally feature old jokes: ‘Oh, no they don’t’-‘Oh, yes they do!’ but every now and then, we do come up with something new! And Pantomime just wouldn’t be Pantomime without good catchy tunes, particularly when sung from the song sheet by the pantomime audience.
Do you want some or even all of this in your pantomime?

Then get in touch!
