Christmas Pantomime

Since the late 1980s a pantomime has featured as the January/February production performed by the society. Over 30 pantomimes have been mounted over that period, several written by our own members. Some of these have won awards in the Oxfordshire Drama Network Pantomime Festival. The cast for the pantomimes is augmented by up to 40 children drawn from the local community, a few taking lead roles, the majority in the chorus or dance ensembles. A large number of families are thus involved, and many children receive their first taste of the theatre in this way. The pantomimes is hugely enjoyable for those taking part, both adults and children alike, and is very popular with the Faringdon community.

Those who are offered a part in the pantomime will be given all the forms and information they need. They are also downloadable from the links below. The latest information concerning rehearsals will be published on the page for the specific pantomime as soon as it becomes available. Please note that changes may occasionally have to be made at short notice but you will be told at the rehearsals.

In order to help towards our costs, and for insurance purposes, a token payment will be required if you are offered a part in the pantomime and are not a full or family member of FDS. See application forms for latest details.
