Hi, Thanks for dropping in to this website. I'm Iain Campbell, the Creator of Mini Pantos. It's a Concept that enables YOU to perform a very short version of some well known Pantos with none of the work of putting on a full production.
You can choose a Mini Panto that you simply copy for your 5/7 participants. You all face your audience and read from Cue Cards ....THAT’S IT!!! It's EASY to follow and HUGE FUN!!! AND you can have Amazing ZOOM MINI PANTOS!
"BRILLIANT AND HILARIOUS" - BUPA
Who can use these?
All the Mini Pantos follow the basic stories of the well known Pantomimes. BUT ....... they are MUCH, MUCH shorter and add extra bits of FUN! Most are 15-20 minutes long.They are EASY TO DO!
They performed by 5-7 individuals who sit on chairs facing their audience. They use Cue Cards to read out their parts, --- just a quick few words, so NO line learning or rehearsals are necessary. It results in a hilarious version of the traditional Panto stories.
NEWS FOR 2022 --- Many people have learned to use ZOOM and these Mini Pantos are IDEAL to use on ZOOM.-- Just send a copy of the Script to your Participants ... AND ...away you go...Everybody else can just watch the FUN!!.... AMAZING FUN FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE APART. These Panto Stories are FANTASTIC for any Group that want to bring a bit of quick Panto FUN to a Party or Get-Together. Including Women's Institutes, Towns Women's Guilds, Residential Homes, Lions Clubs, National Womens Register and Rotary Groups - and ANY Groups or Clubs. They can be used all year round! Check out the Children's Sketch -- Four Adults become Children just like the Haribo Sweets adverts!!
Members of the Audience of a Christmas Show perform The Story of Peter Pan from their Cue Cards with No Rehearsal
Comment from Panto Story Participant Fiona Higgins
"The Panto Sketches are Really FUN!! Quick and Quirky and Easy to do. I've taken part and also watched them and both are equally entertaining.
They go down so well ..... I'd recommend them to all Age groups and am really looking forward to doing another one!.......Oh yes I am!"
A Comment from Karen Moger, Activities Manager at The Primrose Lodge Care Home, Weymouth who has booked a different Panto every year for the last SIX YEARS!
"Taking Part in one of the Pantos is great fun, witty, funny and brings fun to an audience. A great asset to any Christmas lunch party.
Thank You for bringing such joy to our Christmas lunch...with a different panto every year...you really can not go wrong!"
