Get ready for a big carnival on stage!Get ready for a big carnival on stage. After the success of Cinderella and Aladdin, Bangkok Community Theatre (BCT) is bringing back British pantomime to Bangkok this festive season!
The first thing to point out to all non-Brit from around the world is that British pantomime has nothing to do with mime: it is a chaotic and anarchic mix of fun, song, dance, bad jokes, corny acting, and the storyline usually revolves around a famous fairy story.
The play will bring on stage the usual panto chaos, audience participation, music, ghosts, fairies and cross-dressing, including the traditional panto dame.
The show will be performed in English and will offer fun-filled entertainment for the whole family.
As all BCT’s shows, the cast is multinational with actors and singers coming from different places around the world.
The surplus of the show’s income will be donated to Operation Smile, a particularly worthy cause.
