Everyone excited, eagerly expecting
The pantomime live in the school hall.
I've worked in several schools where the pantomime came to us. Looking back, I am amazed we managed to squeeze a whole school into the hall as well as the actors and stage but that's part of the magic - we did!
I'm hoping that my A-Z posts are acting as Entertainment but I'm experiencing exasperation at posting a comment on the A-Z webpage for others to see my daily posts - is anybody else finding difficulties?
Now back to the theme - What is your favourite pantomime memory? Did you go to the theatre or did the theatre come to your school? I'd love to know so leave a comment below :)
My memories of pantomimes are going to see them at Department Stores in Sydney with my grandmother at Christmas time. I would have only been quite little...maybe four or five years old.ReplyDelete
That sounds rather magical seeing a Panto at a department store - what lovely memories :)Delete
I've never been to a pantomime. But I like all kind of theatre, and I attend plays every time I can.ReplyDelete
I don't have problems with posting the link.

Pantomimes in this country have always been very popular around Christmas time - real family entertainment - lots of audience participation and very colourful :)Delete
Thanks for responding about posting - I think I might have had trouble because I was one of the last to leave a comment?
Hank had not experienced it except the school plays that came by rarely. Hank is ok connecting! Thanks for visiting!ReplyDelete
Lovely to have you over, Hank :) We also had school plays - even Shakespeare!! It certainly is a good way to get theatre to the children.Delete
It looks like it is me having the problem with linking to the A-Z blog so will try something new to sort it.
I was a tiny puny kid in school. My teachers never casted me in any plays. The only role I have every played is the talking treeReplyDelete
Oh DeeDee - so sad :( I'm hoping that you rocked it as the talking tree??Delete
Went to a govt school in remote W.Africa so no never had any pantomimes visit or put up. But I do love the theatre. Once upon a time used to get to a lot of performances, but now there are less opportunities.ReplyDelete
Remember your blog from the previous years as well, it's my fourth year too :)
I had a problem re pasting my link in for D I think, wouldn't let me paste a html or https or something like that, no idea why! Otherwise it's been cool. I started by own A-Z blogroll from the theme reveal day, I am using a combo of that, the A-Z blog comments, and the return commenting to find blogs, so far it is working for me.
You are a star - Nilanjana - thanks for all this very useful advice and it's great to link up again with you for another Challenge :)Delete
I don't have any--isn't that odd? No one came to my school, nor the one I taught at. Hmm....ReplyDelete
That sounds rather sad for the children and you if no-one ever saw any real actors perform - it is so magical to watch children respond to real action - and sometimes have them jump into your lap too when things get scary!!!Delete
I've never been to a pantomime, but you seem to have some wonderful memories.ReplyDelete
No I did not face any problem while posting comment.
Thanks Anmol and I'm glad you are fine with posting because I was really happy finding your blog through it :)Delete
I have never seen a pantomime, but I like theater.ReplyDelete
Pantomime is OTT theatre really - loud and bawdy - plenty of drama, laughter and lots of shouting out by the audience "He's behind you!!"Delete
