Find the right panto script for your group
The scripts are British pantomimes. If you are not British, then pantomime probably means something different to you (and the scripts may be rather unexpected) - check out What is a Pantomime anyway? 
 We offer pantomimes in all shapes and sizes.  We therefore offer lots of ways of narrowing down the search for the scripts that will suit you group.  All the pantomimes can be read in full on the Internet.  Click on any of the underlined text to see descriptions of the pantos in your chosen category (from where you will find links to the on-line text)...
 
See the Full List of Pantomime Scripts Search for a Pantomime to suit your group
  Browse through descriptions of all our pantomimes, divided into major categories and sorted alphabetically by title.  The pantomime search engine allows you to select a panto script by number of characters, run-time, age of participants, and lots more!  (This is a sub-set of our full search engine.  Use the full script search engine if you want more search parameters, such as the ability to search by author and theme,)
 
Full-length, Full-cast Pantomimes Full-length, Small-cast Pantomimes
Pantos with large casts (generally flexible, by means of a chorus) and a run-time of more than an hour. 
These are intended to be shows suitable for family audiences. (Sometimes, that is a judgement call - some jokes that go down well in one production will not suit a different audience.  Read the scripts and see!)
These are shows designed to be produced by small companies.  We've defined this as any panto without a requirement for a chorus!  These are all designed as family shows (but again, we recommend that you read them first to see if they will suit your audience).
 
Risqué Pantomimes Family Shows (an alternative to pantomime)
These shows generally contain a high level of innuendo or other content which may not suit a family audience. These are shows which would fit in a pantomime slot, but could play equally well at other times, as they are not strictly pantomimes (and therefore not tied to the pantomime season!)
Mid-length Pantos Rhyming Pantomimes
These are shows with a run-time of more than 20 minutes, but less than 75 minutes (so generally of "one-act play" length), generally written for schools, but frequently performed by a wide variety of other organisations! These are generally short pantomimes told completely in rhyming couplets
