its a chorus line.

Wonder what's going to fill in before I Can't Sing? I'm hoping for White Christmas or Elf although Hairspray has been mooted as coming in,

I'm surprised Warner Bros hasn't considered bringing Elf over, the film is well known and still attracts audiences on TV every year,

Probably 'Scrooge' again as it's nice & cheap and doesn't require that much planning.

Think Scrooge is touring this year, wish they'd retire this show and bring in a different Christmas show.

Problem is a lot of "talent" (i.e. big names) have been hired up already for panto seasons. Someone would really need to hit the ground running to get it off the ground now.

That said, pantos can run without big names, although they are seldom seen in large venues.

It would be great to see a London Palladium pantomime again! There are still some big names that still have not been contracted to panto this year who would put bums on seats - Cilla Black, Barbara Windsor, Joan Collins, Paul O'Grady, Ian McKellan who have all done panto before plus of course big American stars that could be bribed to do it for the first time! Panto is hugely popular and surely would be a big box office hit!
