The Big Book of Panto Scripts by Brian Luff

Channel 4 comedy writer Brian Luff’s versions of Aladdin, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jack & the Beanstalk and Dick Whittington have been performed in venues all over the UK. The shows all have big casts, loads of great parts, and are ideal for productions by amateur and pro-am theatre groups. The scripts are packed with slick comedy routines, hilarious sketches, messy slapstick and fast, snappy banter. NODA recently described Brian’s Aladdin & the Pirates as “A very clever script with many modern twists. A superb example of the panto art!” Please note that a license must be obtained before performing any of the scripts in this book. For more information visit pantoscripts.biz
