It is played, sung and danced by adults and children, usually at Christmas time.
For 400 years, English children have grown up attending Pantomimes from very early ages.
The many rules of an English Pantomime are funny and surprising. Among them:
- The duality of Good and Evil is respected.
- The “good guy” wins in the end and the “bad guy” is … nice.
- Prince Charming is always played by a girl/woman.
- The “nice lady” (mother, aunt, nurse, etc.) is always played by a man.
- There is always a kitchen scene where, often, cream pies fly.
- There is always a very funny striptease.
- The public participates in encouraging the “good guys” and booing the “bad guys.”
- Laughter is provoked by the comedy of the situation for the younger public and by the implied double meanings for the adults.
English Pantomime are highly recommended for everybody, from 4 to 104!
