How long do you need to set up?
We will arrive with you around 90 minutes (earlier if our schedule allows) before the scheduled performance time, This gives us time to evaluate the available performance space & To set up the required equipment, Complete a soundcheck & allow the cast to get ready for the touring pantomime. It usually takes between 20-30 minutes to pack down and clear the venue after the performance.
Our smaller care home pantomiomes use a smaller set up & so are able to arrive around 30 minutes before the show is due to start. It takes a similar time to pack down and clear the venue.
How Long Are Your Touring Pantomimes?
Our Full Length Pantomimes last approximately 120 minutes, including a short interval, this running time can be adjusted to fit the school day if required.
Our 3 Man Pantomimes last approximately 50-60 minutes, varying slightly due to audience reaction.
What ages are your shows aimed at?
Our Touring Pantomimes are suitable for the whole family to enjoy, When we visit schools the content is suitable for the entire school to enjoy.
Many schools over the years have brought their nursery classes in to watch our touring pantos, but we recommend the younger children are sat at the back of the hall on benches closer to the teachers as we have found that they enjoy the show more this way. (As the cast do not appear so large & the volume is quieter at the back of the venue)
For our adult only productions these are for big boys & girls who are 18 and over (these productions are clearly identified on our website)
How much space do you need?
