A Fourth Successful Pantomime at BISC-LP!

December 20, 2018

  • jack 3

Oh no, it’s not! Oh yes, it is! Pantomime season 2018 is officially over at BISC-LP. 

It doesn’t seem long ago that we invited you to a show called Cinderella and, having faithfully bought  tickets, many of our community were quite relieved that ‘pantomime’ did not mean sitting through 90 minutes of silent mime. That was 2015: three years later and the BISC-LP community are now so very accustomed to the slapstick, interactive, organized chaos that is the Great British pantomime. Indeed, we think this year we achieved peak heckling from our audiences.

Sharing this aspect of our holiday season traditions is one little patch in the quilt that makes up our international community, but it allows us to bond with colleagues with whom we might not usually collaborate, to work with members of our parent community and, for those of us who are far from ‘home’, to share a little bit of our culture with our Chicago-home.

This year’s Jack and the Beanstalk at the Vittum Theater saw two raucous performances by the BISC-LP staff. We cannot thank our colleagues and the parent volunteers enough (e-nuf? e-no? un œuf?) for the hours of their own time they have dedicated to making the show such a success. There are also the unsung heroes here at school who have supported the cast and crew in many little ways that made the show possible. This was a real team effort!

Finally, as is custom, the cast and crew gathered for some post-show conviviality on Saturday: the one question on everyone’s lips? “What are we doing next year?”
