It's that time of year again – the Bermuda Musical and Dramatic Society (BMDS) presents Adventure In Pantoland from Thursday, December 8th to Saturday, December 17th.

Have you ever wondered where all the Pantomime characters live when they're not performing in Pantomimes?

The answer is The Land of Make Believe where they play happily waiting for auditions to come around again. But now a nasty witch has cast a spell and they've lost their memories and can't remember which Pantomime they belong too …. Oh no! But wait! Fairy Honeysuckle has come to the rescue and is taking our heroes through six pantomimes to find out where they belong. However an evil witch and her silly sidekick are determined to thwart her plan…….. Oh no!

Adventure in Pantoland, by Alan P Frayn and directed by Laura Bardgett, is a fun filled, old fashioned celebration of Pantomime complete with lots of audience participation, traditional characters and some really bad jokes. Seven different storylines are visited including Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin, Dick Whittington, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White and Cinderella along with the traditional song sheet and silly skit! They even have a Pantomime cow!

Showtime is at 7pm from December 8th until December 17th, with 2pm matinee performances on December 10th, 11th and 17th. There will be no evening performance on Sunday, December 11th.

Tickets are $35 and are available from www.pTix.bm or from the box office on 292-2313.
