FESTIVE FOREBODINGS

With the pending advent of the Christmas Season, Anticant, Dame Barbara, and Ben Trovato are deep in consultation scripting the Burrow Grand Christmas Pantomime, Anticant and the Naughty Bloggers.There will be a star-studded cast including Good Fairy LavenderBlue, Zola the Magician, Toyboy Trousers, Mad Merkin, Wicked Wookie, a punch and judy show performed by the Beadle and Mrs Malaprop, and return appearances of 'Wolfy' Wolfowitz and the Crafty Chambermaid as Little Red-faced Ridingboots. Wooffie, of course, will steal the show with his Dance of the Seven Pearlstrings.

Watch this space!

Certainly give that crafty chambermaid a good one over when I am wearing no pants'mine.
Will CCM be with this pantsamine we ask.
Jesus just like an old fashioned office party methinks.

I Did a panto in the Xmas of 1982 called "The Ogre Wook & The Lewd Maidens," out on the farm North of Eagle lake, but it was a kind of one-off deal....

Hahahah I wait with much anticipation...

The drafting committee has decided that the Burrow panto has to be a collaborative effort. Participants are invited to submit their own scripts.

So Zola, we await your scenario for Little Red Ridingboot's encounter in the wood with Zola the Enchanter who lures her to his lair for an old fashioned office party.

Will Wook please provide a rousing chorus for the choir of lewd maidens.

And Trousers, best get some practice in go-go dancing for the nightclub hen night scene where the lewd maidens throw their knickers onstage.....

The Burrow Beadle said...

No lewd knicker-throwing in the Burrow.

Merkin said...

If it's a party, I will be there.

Emmett said...

'Tra-la-la & widdly-woo,
Fornicate & screw'...hmm?

SORRY, Er, who's to be the, um...ah, Virgin?

Emmett said...

ALSO, The lewd maidens in these parts being american, I expect we'll need to lay in loads of cannabis & cocaine, in inspiration of their best amatory efforts & display, eh?

Emmett said...

Sorry...perhaps you lot are NOT intent on a really TRASHY holiday brawl?

Wicked Wook, go and wash your mouth out with carbolic soap.

This a CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME, not a sex orgy, for heaven's sake! The rule of pantomime is that there must be nothing unsuitable for seven-year-olds. A little rollicking bawdiness, maybe, but DEFINITELY no hard drugs or any other form of hard action. The chorus of lewd maidens are to be a souped-up version of the fairies in 'Iolanthe', or at worst - if they HAVE to be American - Disneyland extras.

We keep it clean in the Burrow.
