Cast of Characters

In a Traditional British Panto, characters that are generally considered a “male” role might be played by a female and vice versa. For example, the ‘DAME‘ is always played by a man. The “HERO” may be a woman. And so it goes…

“Singing Ability” means able or willingness to sing. More of a ‘nice to have’ but not mandatory. Certain roles will be singing solos and duets. Songs are usually short, with some numbers involving the Chorus.
