Panto Scripts for Small and Large Casts.

No one size fits all. Sometimes you may wish to condense the cast size – and sometimes you may wish to add cameo parts etc. This is why I always supply the master copy in Word format to allow you to make changes easily.

That said, I wrote Treasure Island, Snow White, Cinderella (Version 1), Puss in Boots and Camelot the Panto specifically as large cast pantos. Ali Baba also has a large cast as there was a lot of doubling in the original small cast version.

Aladdin, Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty & the Beast and Robin Hood are all somewhere in the middle, although very easy to adapt for larger or smaller casts.

Dick Whittington, Cinderella (Version 2), Mother Goose – and Ali Baba were all originally written for quite small professional casts of 7 or 8. However, they all incorporated some doubling, so the amateur acting versions remain quite flexible in cast size.

Whatever your requirements, all my scripts have a running time of about two hours plus interval. They’re traditional, fast paced, funny and feel fully twenty first century!
