En Garde! Script to Stage

I thought it would be fun to make a little video with some of my highlights of putting this hilarious show together. From bashing out ideas on a whiteboard, through script writing, auditions, casting, production meetings, photo shoots, rehearsals, and set building — we spend around 9 months a year putting a panto together. Here I’ve condensed that into around 2 minutes to one of those jolly stock indie guitar tracks everyone hates.

And our next panto will be…

Time to let the cat out of the bag! Suburban Legend is proud to announce that our 8th Annual Pantomime will open in January 2020. Very loosely based on the characters of Alexandre Dumas’ classic swashbuckling novel, get ready for:

EN GARDE! The Pantomime Adventures of The Four Musketeers

What’s the plot? We don’t know yet! But we do know that it will be written by our Panto Champions here at Suburban Legend, and that D’Artagnan, Porthos, Athos and Aramis will be facing off against their arch enemies – Milady DeWinter, the Count de Rochefort and Cardinal Richelieu – in an action-packed crazy adventure full of fencing puns, songs, dancing and outrageously terrible French accents! We are extremely excited to bring you this new pantomime adaptation and we want you to get involved.
What is a Panto, you ask? Well you can find out more about that here.
You can also support your local Panto Champions by becoming a show sponsor. Or you can pick up some Panto-related stuff in our shop.
