Panto Pandemonium 2 hr. show
This superb two-hour version of the ever-popular children's version is ideal for secondary schools, amateur panto societies and youth/community theatre groups. There's an entertaining script, lots of quirky characters, plus a great soundtrack featuring 16 songs for mixed voices, excellent incidental music and sound effects. On top of all of this, the director's resources (see below) are particularly comprehensive and well thought-out, placing 'Panto Pandemonium' among the most user-friendly packages available. Reviewed by Amateur Stage magazine, 'Panto Pandemonium' is described as "a magically refreshing pantomime... remarkably entertaining script, awash with comedy as well as a delightful story line."
Jack's Beanstalk won't grow - Aladdin's lamp won't work - Cinderella's slipper won't fit - the Good Fairy is in a state, because none of her magic is working. In short, it's chaos in Pantoland! This is all because the baddies (the Wicked Witch and her incompetent sidekicks Snotty & Grotty) have stolen three magic objects: Aladdin's magic lamp, Cinderella's magic slipper, and the goose that lays the golden eggs. Meanwhile the goodies, Ben and Sarah, are sent on a quest to thwart the Witch's master plan, searching in lots of different pantomime locations (along with plenty of gags and 'business'). There are stacks of traditional panto gags and 'business' and the show is compered by two eccentric hosts - aptly named Boo & Hiss!
Eventually, with the help of the Good Fairy, Ben and Sarah manage to track down all three missing magic objects - AND they are able to return them triumphantly to their rightful owners, much to the disgust of the Wicked Witch! It doesn't stop there, however. In the end, the Good Fairy is able to recognise that, in her defeat, the Witch is isolated and alone. Everyone is persuaded to encourage her to turn her life around and 'step into light'. What will she choose to do?
This ready-made, family-friendly panto has full score available (plus all instrumental parts) as well as expertly arranged backing tracks. The music is available both in sheet form or in PDF format. Individual scores are available for piano-vocal, keyboard (1 & 2), guitar, bass, and drums.
The set of four CDs contains:
1) vocal demonstrations of all the songs,
2) instrumental backings
3) excellent comedy sound effects to enhance the performance
4) hi-resolution artwork for posters, programmes and tickets.

"This was a wonderful panto to do. Everyone involved - adults and children - loved it, which came through to the audience. The enthusiasm and energy was real and feed-back positively great! I am sure Panto Pandemonium will be extremely popular with other groups, and I would love to see a professional company do it with all their resources. In fact, I would love to do it again - knowing what I do now!" ~ T. Rigg, Director, The Bishampton Barnstormers.

Magically Refreshing Pantomime
Review by Amateur Stage
A magically refreshing pantomime ... remarkably entertaining script, awash with comedy, as well as a delightful story line.
Review by Michael Bale - Director, Haven Players, Sussex
Very Good! It was fun to do and the audiences appreciated something different.
Review byColette Divers - Langholm Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society, Scotland
I was the Production Secretary for the show and I must admit it was a fantastic show to be involved in, it was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved - on and off stage!! Certainly helped generate a lot of interest in doing more shows!!
Review by Phil Barnett -- Chairman, Kidz R Us, Cornwall
It was a fantastic show to be in. It was really easy to direct as there were plenty of individual directorial choices. I have been involved in many pantos and this was one of the most enjoyable for both cast and audience. The humour can seem a bit cheesy when first read but I think it is perfect for panto and the audience responded really well to all the jokes. It really is refreshing to find something up to date but keeping all the panto traditions - please do some more!!!!!!
