The Professionals – Picture Spread (Panto Special)

It is essential for amateurs to see as many professional productions as possible, and panto is no exception. The genre may look like chaos, but nearly everything in a professional panto has been heavily rehearsed. After watching a myriad of (pro & amateur) pantos this year, the important things to take onboard are: plenty of pace & attack, no in-jokes, a funny and relevant script, and an MD who is as sharp as a button.
