Pantomime

I've always been a great supporter of the arts. So when the chance came for me to broaden my horizons with a trip to my local pantomime, I didn't hesitate. For those not familiar with this particular form of entertainment, it consists of a lot of middle aged men cross-dressing and attempting to engage with small children whilst seeking opportunities to flash large spotted or brightly coloured female under garments at them.
 At certain points throughout the performance, the audience are encouraged to shout out 'He's behind you!' with great gusto. By this stage I feared the worse and I shouted with conviction at the thought of Jimmy Savilesque atrocities being performed before my very eyes.
When I could take no more, I made the necessary phone call and let Operation Yewtree do the rest.

  4. I had never heard of a Pantomime before. I had to Google it. I can't believe such things still take place in England. What happened to Shakespeare?

  6. Definitely worth waiting for... thanks David :)
    I used to build scenery for my local theatre when I left school.... you would be amazed at what goes on behind the scenes at panto time... Thankfully, no Jimmy Saville OR the Krankies.... but some right weirdos I can tell you

  7. Isn't there enough old ladies out there to play old ladies on stage, or am I being thick?

    1. I've never been to one either, but I probably would if I had the chance. They look like fun.

  9. I love panto and get involved every year. This year we did Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was great fun. I don't mind a bit of cross dressing. I've always been a bit deviant.
