If you did a word association about ‘Christmas’ then ‘Pantomime’ would definitely be a popular choice seeing as it is indeed a part of the festive season along with decorating the tree, eating mince pies and turkey!
Why are they so popular? Well the audience work just as hard as the actors, there is a lot of interaction, giggles and fun. This year’s Aladdin will be on a stage here in Bath…
