About the Show & Meet the Cast
Peter Duncan & Pantomime
I have been steeped in Pantomime since I was a little boy.
My parents were Panto producers and I spent my childhood in the wings watching them perform, soaking up the laughter and storytelling.
I would finally make it onstage in the song sheet where I became the 'feed' to my fathers funny man. It was perhaps not surprising I became an actor at 15 and then going on to be a Blue Presenter and UK's Chief Scout amongst many other lifetime adventures. It was decades later that I finally began to perform, write and produce Pantomimes myself around the UK.
This new production is an inspired ensemble effort in these unpredictable times. I really hope you enjoy all the creativity that has gone into the making of it.
