The Mother of All
Pantomime With An Edge
Being for the benefit of the Salonistas of Lil's
Atelier as well as friends and lurkers throughout h2g2, we are pleased to
present a pantomime of indefinite plot, size and duration.
- Three Blind Mice
- Purr in Boots

- Robyn Bankes
- Humpty Dumpty
- Thistle Howl
- Seven Dwarves
- The Ugly Duckling
- Mysterious Stranger
- Pansy Ffing
- Mary and her full-grown <sheep>
The objective is to find the golden egg but unfortunately the stagehands
have put the egg in the wrong place and this has afforded some comic confusion
and hurried improvisation in Act 1.
Act 1. In the Gingerbread Cottage. Lots of singing and dancing, a display of acrobatics, two industrial accidents and some truly dreadful rhyming couplets. Double entendres feature and there is very nearly "some content of a sexual nature", as they say on TV.
Between Acts. The ePantomime. Advances in VR technology have allowed us to
offer this unique opportunity for the audience to join the cast in a Total
Immersion Adventure on Magoose Island starting at Row Row Lake.
Act 2. Back in the Gingerbread Cottage. More of the same really. The golden egg might be found. Or it might not. There is only one way to find out.
How to join in
You can sign up immediately as a member of the audience at the ticket stall,
but please do not post in the other threads until you have been to the island and
read the rules of the game.
It would be possible for new cast members to be introduced even though the
pantomime has started but please read all the rules first. This is probably not
the best of virtual quests for beginners.
