This year sees Panto Day celebrate its eighth anniversary and things are turning wicked with 2018’s theme announced as The Year of the Villain.
From Abanazar and Fleshcreep to the Wicked Queen and Carabosse, Pantoland’s baddies will be centre stage as they try to defeat Jack, Dick and Cinderella.
On Friday 14th December, theatres across the UK and around the world will come together to celebrate the wonderful world of pantomime. From tweeting using #pantoday on Twitter, to posting videos on YouTube with plenty of glitter, screens and stages will come alive as Pantoland opens its doors to all.
Crosswords, wordsearches and colouring in sheets can be downloaded from celebratepanto.co.uk with pantomimes encouraged to join in the fun by Tweeting, Facebooking, YouTubing and Instagramming throughout the day using hashtag #pantoday.
From special behind-the-scenes sneak-peeks to stage selfies and the now famous #pantopout, it’s never been easier to get involved!
The Year of the Villain will also see new articles published on the Panto Advice Page with top industry experts sharing their pearls of panto wisdom, whilst behind the scenes the team at Panto Day HQ put the finishing touches to a brand new docu-feature all about the villains we love to hate.
In the month leading up to Friday 14th December, Panto Day’s social media is sharing a new #VillainoftheDay throughout the week, so start practising your boos, hisses and evil laughs now! Muahahahahaha…………
