A Third Successful Pantomime from the BISC-LP Staff!

December 13, 2017

  • Panto

The year was 1992. In the third row of an auditorium in the West Highland harbor town of Oban, Scotland, a five year old boy – with a good inch missing from the center of his bangs – cheered, hissed, booed and heckled his way through Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, much to the mortification of his teenage sister.

She never has taken me to another pantomime.

That day however, a passion was born. The pantomime is one of my favorite aspects of the holiday season in the U.K. I know for those of us living far from our roots, it brings a little bit of ‘home’ to our Chicago-home. So it brings me a lot of joy to share this aspect of British holiday culture with our school community.

The curtain has fallen on the third BISC-LP Annual Charity Pantomime.  This weekend at the Vittum Theater, the staff of BISC-LP brought you three fun-filled performances of Dick Whittington and His Cat. I think I have run out of ways to say thank you to my wonderful, talented colleagues who committed so much time and effort to making it a success, and to our faithful parent volunteers whose time and skill were invaluable.

This year saw me playing Tommy the Cat who, only in the final week of rehearsal, developed kleptomanic tendencies. What you didn’t see however, was that behind that mask I was grinning ear-to-ear as you and your five year olds – bangs hopefully intact – cheered, hissed, booed and heckled, just like my 5 year old self.
