  3. Story Soup: The Improvised Pantomime

Playhouse Pantomimes is proud to present… absolutely anything you want!

Our hilarious team of improvisers will make up a brand-new musical pantomime on the spot. But we need your help! Bring along a head full of ideas and we’ll create a fairytale based on suggestions that you, the audience, give us!

There’ll be plenty of music and plenty of laughs. There could be puppets, there might be dancing – we don’t know, we haven’t written it yet!

Playhouse Pantomimes has been creating theatre for children since 2017, with musical adaptations of beloved classics such as Alice in WonderlandRobin Hood and The Wind in the Willows. Following two successful Melbourne International Comedy Festival runs of adapted works in 2022 and 2023, we are thrilled to return to the Festival with our brand-new improvised show!

"My girls were mesmerised by the entire performance. My girls left saying that today was ‘the best day ever'.” Celide, parent

“I was laughing even more than my kids, and they were shrieking with laughter!… I'm still chortling every time I think about certain scenes.” Heidi, parent

“Even my active two-year-old was mesmerised for the whole show! We enjoyed the little lines for the adults that were dropped in too. Can't wait for your next show!" Neroli, parent

“Fantastic shows, every time! We’ve been to nearly all of them. They’re are a massive holiday highlight for my kids and they are always SO EXCITED when I tell them we’re going again.” Esther, parent

“A sensational, professional and entertaining company who provided a wonderful live performance for our students.” Alarna, teacher
