“Local Director Laura Bardgett very much wanted to return to the golden age of BMDS pantomimes with a traditional storyline combined with local themes. She has set the Panto in Bermuda with beautifully created backdrops of Castle Island.

“With the kind permission of Alan Frayn, the writer of Sleeping Beauty, Laura was able to include plenty of Bermudian references and up-to-the-minute local jokes to keep adults amused alongside the usual slapstick for the kids.

“Updated music from the likes of Taylor Swift, BTS and Lizzo provide modern, catchy tunes performed by locally recognizable talent to ensure the audience will want to participate in all the fun. [Oh yes you will!] Joining Laura on the production are Bermudians Dave Pitman as Musical Director and Choreographer Eryn Beach.

“The cast ranges in age from 8 years to 76 years old and are all Bermudians or local residents. The diverse range of talent participating in the show is amazing, Many of the cast are easily recognised whilst for some this is their first foray into Panto.”

“Shows are at the City Hall nightly starting 30th November through to 10th December including 3 matinee performances. Tickets available from BMDS are fortunate to be able to keep the ticket prices at $40, again this year, to allow families to enjoy this production.”
