Twas The “NIGHT” Before Panto!

Twas The 'night' before Panto!

About the Video

What a year it’s been!
Covid-19 has certainly taken its toll on all of us. However, with a vaccine on its way, it will eventually pass, and things will get slowly back to normal. Although the Pandemic has shuttered public events, closed down theatres and other performing venues, The Laughing Stock Theatre Society is proud to present a very special, Covid-19 friendly, treat for the whole family. Our Volunteer Theatre Elves have been busy over the summer and fall of 2020 preparing an original – straight to YouTube – Christmas Special that took the place of our Annual Live Traditional Panto.

Twas the NIGHT Before Panto!

“Its the evening before Panto would be released upon the land, and the harbinger of Panto herself, Dame Washalot, reads ‘Twas the Night Before Panto’ from her vast Panto archives. As well, a special guest stops by and sings about a few of her Christmas Pet Peeves.

You can catch all the zaniness via our YouTube channel The Laughing Stock Theatre YouTube Channel

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did preparing it for you! Look for the tradition of “Live” Panto to (hopefully) return in 2021!

Cheerio! Off to the ‘virtual’ Panto you go!
