It’s pantomime season. Families have a lot to look forward to.
At De Montfort Hall this year, Mark Read is back on stage. The singer from pop band a1 will join a stellar cast; Scott Mills from BBC Radio 2, X Factor winner Sam Bailey, and comedian Jarred Christmas.
Jack And The Beanstalk is a well-known pantomime. Every year when Christmas is approaching, the show offers great fun for families.
A pantomime is a kind of musical comedy stage production intended for family viewing. Originally developed in England, it is performed throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland, and other English-speaking countries during the holiday season.
Modern pantomime includes songs, slapstick comedy, and dancing. It generally offers topical humor with a story based on a well-known fairy tale.
-I like actors that are good with pantomime and that can transmit a lot by their presence and attitude more than through their dialogue.
– Guillermo del Toro.
