For our #Panto Day 2013 video we thought we’d do a serious piece to camera explaining that we at Pantomime Songs Limted love pantomime because it is possible to present really serious themes such as justice, truth, honesty, loyalty and, of course, love, in a friendly and mildly good humoured way. Good always overcomes evil and everyone is happy in the end.
So, not just a silly bit of nonsense with everyone messing about, but rather a piece of sincere theatre, employing dramatic devices to present serious themes. We like to reflect this in our songs.
That, at least, was the plan….
As this video shows, the old adage “Never work with animals” holds true in pantomime.
