KING ARTHUR

by Jackie Mellor-Guin

A traditional British panto
A world premiere

Arthur Bonkers lives with his father, his brother Kaye and his aunt Nanny Chit Chat. He spends his days hanging out with his pet dragon Poofy, helping Kaye get ready for tournaments, and nursing a not-so-secret crush on Guinevere. He doesn't know that one day he will be King. Or that today is that day!

But it's not all going to be plain sailing. Morgana Le Fey thinks she should be Queen and will stop at nothing to make it happen. Arthur has Merlin and Soggyanna (the Lady of the Lake) on his side, but will that be enough?

King Arthur is a traditional British panto with corrny jokes, wacky characters, the Dame, a ghost, a blacklight scene and, of course, oodles of audience participation. The audience is encouraged to cheer for the good guys, boo and hiss the bad guys and join in with the characters on stage. The show works on two levels, with a story children can follow and jokes adults can appreciate.
