Description

Directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell 

Produced by Eileen Kent 

A traditional British Pantomime 

Young Peter’s evil brothers have cheated him out of his inheritance, leaving him with nothing but his mangy old cat. Worse, the girl he loves is really a princess, and her mother wants her to marry a rich lord. Plus, a hungry ogre is looking for dinner. But wait! Mother Goose casts a spell on the cat, and it’s Puss in Boots to the rescue! 

Pantomime is a British tradition of winter musical comedy theatre. Not to be mistaken with mime – silent performers in white-face make up. British pantomime takes familiar fairy tales and children’s stories such as Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and His Cat, Snow White and injects a bit of music hall (British Vaudeville) sensibility, contemporary references and audience participation to create a raucous, noisy entertainment that’s fun for the whole family.
