Pantomime

Description

In this programme, a primary school goes to the Theatre Royal in Newcastle to see Cinderella. Before the performance, the pupils are taken on a tour backstage and participate in a drama and costume workshop.

Like many large theatres, the Theatre Royal organises education workshops and special events for school parties, with the aim of encouraging young people to take an interest in their work. The visiting school is given:

  • A tour to look at some of the scenery, props and backstage technology used for the production of the pantomime
  • A drama workshop, where they learn about the principle characters
  • The chance to dress up in some of the costumes and stage a grand tableau
  • The opportunity to watch the full performance of Cinderella
  • A talk about the history of pantomime and its relevance to modern audiences, from Cinderella's ugly sisters
