PANTOMIME BOOK


PANTOMIME BOOK

PAUL HARRIS    Book Number: 86415    Product format: Paperback

Widow Twankey, Wishee Washee, Snow White, Mother Goose, Dick Whittington, Cinderella, Buttons, Little Red Riding Hood, Sinbad the Sailor and Aladdin are characters familiar to many generations of theatregoers. Here actor Paul Harris has gathered together an hilarious selection of theatrical material, much of which originated in Victorian times and has been updated and refined over the past century or more. He introduces us to the stalwarts of just about every panto - the Dame, Comic and Feed - and places each sketch in context. His book is full of theatrical anecdotes and helpful tips about props, stage effects and stage biz, the art of improvising on a comedy theme and all the standard sketches and gags are here - The Y Dance, the Tiddley Tree, A Little Bit of Heaven, the Magic Hat, the Busy Bee and perhaps the two most famous The School Room and The Kitchen Scene. The word pantomime was first used about an English entertainment as early as March 1717 and still evokes magic and people still flock to them every winter towards Christmastime to this day. The foreword by Rod Hudd, one for all gag masters. 149pp in paperback.
