Super Power Panto

March 2023

Super Power Panto Logo: In a comic book style, a blue gloved hand bursts out from the pages of a comic book, holding a white cane. Yellow action lines and stars surround it, flying out from the centre of the image. Slanted across the top left of the image the words 'Super Power Panto' are written in yellow blocky cartoon text, outlined in black and with a blue drop shadow. All of this is in front of a deep red background.

Watch edited highlights from the show here:

  • Jasmin, a Chinese actor in her mid-20s stands onstage wearing a yellow dress with a blue lightning bolt across the chest with long white sleeves and socks. She holds a cane triumphantly above her head in both hands.
  • Angela, a white female actor wearing a blue boiler suit and bright green wig decorated with little planets stands smiling with her arms outstretched as though in song. Next to her stands Chris, a white actor wearing a blue boiler suit with a bright pink tutu and tall wig of the same colour decorated with stars. he has his hand on his torso and pulls an expression as though singing a low operatic note. They stand in front of the Super Power Panto comic book observatory set, either side of which is a yellow curtain covered in red and green stars.
  • Steve, a white male actor, Chloe, a mixed-heritage female actor and Chris, a white male actor stand in a line at the front of the stage with their right hands raised. They all wear boater hats, green blazers with red waistcoats underneath, grey shorts and long colourful socks.

A fabulous experience for our kids! “Dave” was especially made up with being part of the show. Not only have you provided an inclusive theatre experience but you’ve widened their hopes and aspirations with new found knowledge that they could be actors if they wanted to be.
