Report: Early each December we enjoy a “bring and share” buffet lunch to start the festivities of Christmas.
After the meal we have a surprise speaker and this year Lynda Warren entertained us with her talk entitled, “He’s Behind You”!
She explained that pantomime first started in ancient Greece then came to Italy and France arriving in the UK in the 16th century.
traditional fairy tale stories – Dick Whittington, Jack & the Beanstalk, Aladdin etc.
A performance of singing, dancing, slapstick and jokes has entertained all ages of a family for years.
There is always a background of good versus evil with the good fairy and a villain.
Audience participation is encouraged and the finale is usually a 'happy ever after' wedding.
