Wyvern Players is presenting a modern British pantomime but still holding to many of the traditional ways of pantomime.
Pantomime (informally panto) has its origins in England and is a type of musical comedy designed for family entertainment. Modern pantomime is usually based on a well-known fairy tale, book or movie. It remains very traditional in nature and includes songs, slapstick comedy and dancing. It also employs gender-crossing actors and combines this with topical humour. It is a participatory form of theatre in which the audience is expected to sing along and shout out phrases to the performers.
