Dear Solange,our facility performed this pantomine today for residents and their families for their Christmas party. We added a few of our own lines mainly because people forgot but like everyone who has done this for their residents it was constant laughter for 30mins. We had a horse that galloped away on the prince and the prince was a female staff member who came out first dressed as an old prince and somehow found the fairy godmother who changed him into a younger prince after the ball and cinderella was our maintenance man. He had a daggy dress on with a velcro back so the prince could rip it off her/him exposing him dressed in a wonder woman's costume to wear to the ball. Our fairy godmother had to use 3 wands before she found one that worked and the ugly sisters had cushions strapped to their bodies so they had a huge bubble bottom. Our narrator was dressed as a half man half woman and we used a thong as the glass slipper. Our valet pretended to speak in french so the ugly sisters looked even more confused. Our prince mimed a love song to Cinderella.I can't wait for the new pantomines to come out next year. I think we will have staff knocking our door down to be a part of it. Thank you very much.

Hi Debbie, I am glad the pantomime worked for you. I have always had very good experience with it. Yes we shall have some more next year.

Hi Donelle, this is also my experience; it doesn't matter how long you rehearse as long as everyone knows roughly what they are doing. Performers can use their wit and add to it to make it funnier. I am glad it worked for you as well. There will be another two pantomimes in the coming year. Cheers, Solange

Hi Debi, well done! Some of our colleagues are shy to put on a pantomime but as you probably found out, it is all in the name of fun and not as much work as one thinks. Enthusiasm and sense of fun is all you need. I hope you got some brownie points with your management. All the best. Cheers Solange

HI Solange & All, Just to you all know our play was fantastic! the residents roared with laughter as did staff & family members.It was areal comedy act,and the costumes outstanding, for example the Prince was dressed with a mullet wig, blue singlet, thongs and shorts. I recommend every one to have a go. Cheers Debi.
