Tabbed by Bob Tucker
RolesMinimum Male roles = 4. Minimum Female roles = 3. Minimum total with doubling = 7. Minimum total without doubling = 12. Chorus. The script is about a group performing a British Pantomime, therefore Widow Twankey is intended to be played by a man, and Aladdin by a young woman. The chorus is optional (the chorus part could probably be doubled by a couple of the principals.)
Run TimeAround 30 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne-act comedy, set in the middle of a (disastrous) pantomime performance.
SynopsisIt's Panto time again for the Witherington Over Mired Brook Amateur Theatrical Society (WOMBATS), but things aren't going well... Aladdin's had a nasty accident and had to be replaced at short notice, the script is illegible, the stage crew are in revolt and the lights and curtain aren't behaving themselves either. Can Widow Twankey hold things together?
