compoundsPANTOMIMEUna pantomime, abreviada en inglés como panto, es una obra teatral que se representa normalmente en Navidades ante un público familiar. Suele estar basada en un cuento de hadas u otra historia conocida y en ella nunca faltan personajes como la dama (dame), papel que siempre interpreta un actor, el protagonista joven (principal boy), normalmente interpretado por una actriz, y el malvado (villain). Aunque es un espectáculo familiar dirigido fundamentalmente a los niños, en él se alienta la participación de todo el público y posee una gran dosis de humor para adultos.
