Panto

After nearly a decade in the UK, I had my first experience of that great British Christmas season fixture, the pantomime.

I was entirely unfamiliar with the idea. At my previous school they had an intramural panto contest, with each house performing a brief production. Tonight was my first full-length professional panto. We don’t live in a place big enough to draw a minor national celebrity to a major role, but it was still a proper show.

It was very entertaining.  It was the story of Snow White like I’d never quite seen it before, with elaborate costumes, except for the dancers, whose costumes were often too skimpy to be elaborate. And more lame jokes and gags than I thought possible in two hours.
