Chennai’s Christmas Pantomime

Christmas Pantomime, is a type of musical comedy stage production, designed for family entertainment. It was developed in England and is generally performed during the Christmas and New Year season.

Modern pantomime includes songs, slapstick comedy and dancing, employs gender-crossing actors, and combines topical humour with a story loosely based on a well-known fairy tale. It is a participatory form of theatre, in which the audience is expected to sing along with certain parts of the music and shout out phrases to the performers.

The most famous Christmas Pantomime in Chennai is done by The Little Theater Trust ( Aysha Rau ).
