Hello, I thought I would pay a visit. I thoroughly enjoyed
being part of the flower garden in Beauty And The Beast, it was ever so cosy
if somewhat short lived, but I could do without all the publicity. I wish
I could settle down somwehere but wherever I go I seem to cause hassle. Anyway
I must go because I am not sure who is watching! Thanks for letting me be
part of the cast and maybe I will get a part in your next show. All the best,

It's refreshing to see a panto page on the web. I am the
artistic director (writer and production team member) for the Basel English
Panto Theatre (well at least that's its name this year). We started 5 years
ago with Cinderella (a "bought script") which was held on a makeshift stage
in the Crossair flight simulator room (I kid you not). Since then we have
done Aladdin (sent in ancient Egypt) and Babes in The Glen (a Scottish version
of Babes in The Woods (which we wrote) This years magnum opus will be Robin
Hood and His Merry Men (or should I say persons). The aim of our group is
to bring the English panto tradition to the large English speaking community,
here in Basel (although we try and inject as much local material as possible.
We aim to have as high standards as possible - but to also have as much fun
as possible. I hope to hear from any "panto-people" FDR
at work - sort of

I'm impressed! I didn't realise pantos were such happening
things. Well good luck with the next one and I'll be on the look-out for
some complimentary tickets (especially if it clashes with a work night).

I am a member of the St. Martin's Players, an Anglican church
based drama group. We have staged three pantomimes to date, all of which
have been successfull. We value the way in which these productions have drawn
people together. We literally have people from the age of three to well over
seventy working together. If you have any panto scripts available, please
let me know. By the way, I am originally from Cardiff.

Great to read all the brill comments from everywhere! We're
a professional theatre company in eastern Ontario, and I too am looking for
Panto scripts, specifically for "Cinderella" which we're thinking of doing
this Christmas. We did our first Panto last December and sold out - once
we managed to convince people around here that Pantomime is not Mime, and
yes, there is singing and dancing and comedy... Looking forward to getting
in touch with other Panto groups and best wishes to all! Caroline

What a great site. We are a village pantomime group called
the Beacon Players. I was trying to search the Web for info on pantos. We
are particularly keen to get a source of new scripts. The last few have been
by John Morley and we would like a change. Are your scripts ever used by
other groups - a royalty would be paid of course! Best of luck with your
next production Regards Richard Mollart

Hi there! I work with disadvantaged children and would like
to form a group of (13-17year old)performers. I'm completely in the dark
about where to get started. I saw something once where the performers wore
black costumes and fluorescent gloves, shoes and masks and used blacklights
to illuminate them. Trouble is, I don't really know where to get started.
Can you help a new friend across the ocean. Any advise will be greatly

Hey! I am starting a drama club for some young kids this

act out with their mime make-up on. Can you help?

Interesting site -- but when I saw that you say these pages
take you "behind the scenes" I thought there would be more info, maybe pictures
of behind-the-scenes aspects of the productions. Of course -- the audience
always wants MORE. I've only managed to get to the UK during the panto season
once, but thought the Cinderella I got to see then (in Wimbledon) was FABULOUS.
I want very much to learn more about pantos, but there seems to be NO material
to read over here. What are all those things that the audience says say during
the performances? oompah-oompah? hunh? Are there any books on panto? All
information gratefully, nay, HUNGRILY accepted. M.E.Foley

Isn't it a pity that you are not performing when we visit
Bristol on April 3rd! We are an amateur group from Germany, and we regularly
perform in our twin town (Doncaster) - in English. After many Brecht plays
(and a few Shakespeares) it is a play about the "Nibelungs" this year Afterwards
we always stop in some interesting spot, and we had been hoping (and have
not given up hope yet) to attend an English performance that suit the whole
group (age range from 11 to 27). But perhaps you invite us to your millenium
party... B. B-Doll
