The scripts are modern and up to date, whilst retaining a totally traditional format. Each script contains the complete pantomime, including comedy routines/scenas and suggestions for current songs. They do not contain original music, and numbers can be updated from recent "chart" releases.
Available pantomime subjects are: Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and Sleeping Beauty.
Please contact Nigel with any enquiries regarding availability of pantomime subjects and royalty payments. It would be helpful if you could include the intended venue, seating capacity and length of your pantomime run with your enquiry.
