Panto Day

July 15, 2016

On Friday 15th July, we were visited by actors from the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton , to teach our older children about the history of pantomime. 
We learnt about the origins of pantomime and how ladies and girls were not allowed to perform—this is why boys would dress as ladies—a tradition that is still kept today with the panto dame and the principle boy. 
The children enjoyed the interactive workshop and performance.

We will be visiting the theatre next term.
