“Pantomimes are traditional English plays performed at this time of year. They are always lots of fun, with lots of energy, humour, noise and participation from the audience, and are popular with children and adults. The small town of Chipping Norton is nice to look around also” (from international office trips and events website).
At a pantomime, there are often some traditional moments when the audience participate. Sometimes characters on the stage may ask the audience a simple question, with a yes or no answer. Another way the audience often participates is to boo or hiss the “baddie”.
On 16th Nov I went to Chipping Norton (a small town in Cotswold) to watch the pantomimes “mother goose”. We had great fun: we sung, we talked with actors and actress… It was very English, very Christmas play.
Here are some photos I took in Chipping Norton.
