    Well if you ask the average Canadian if they know what a pantomime is they will reply. 'Sure! It's like Marcel Marceau' and they do the mime of a guy trying to get out of a glass box.



    We did one for fun a couple of years ago using all amateur youngsters.

    I have it on video. When the Ugly Sisters (a 300 lb guy and a 6'4" guy in drag came on., the audience didn't know how to react. There were some very nervous laughs before they caught on.

    I saw parents trying to quieten their kids when they were booing the bad guys.



    We made sure the actors reacted to every shout and comment from the kids

    But by the end of the week the word had got round and the place was full. By then we had run out of time.

    So any ideas for gags are appreciated.
