The UWA Pantomime Society was formed in 2003 by two students from Bristol University on semester exchange. Founded on the primary principle of ‘fun’, Panto quickly became a staple of campus theatre culture.
Not to be confused with actual mime, pantomime is the distortion of well-known stories in unexpected, improvised, and innuendo-filled ways. The best part is that pantomime encourages interaction with those on stage. Heckles, catcalls, and generally unhelpful advice are incorporated into shows, often with hilarious results.
UWA Panto is all-inclusive, semi-improv, and regularly scheduled. We run three entirely original productions each year, one per semester and a Christmas charity show for children. Panto is excited to branch out by coming to FRINGE WORLD!
