Caesar the Panto is set at a time the Roman Empire ruled over ancient Britain. But rebellion is in the air in the form of a group of British freedom-fighters, led by the inept and delusional Reginald.
Princess Britney of Essex is kidnapped and taken to Rome, to marry Caesar and hopefully quell the rebellion. But her fiancé, Prince Ralph of Wessex, sets off to rescue her, accompanied by Britney’s parents, and Britney’s sister, Princess Whitney. Unbeknownst to them, they are accompanied by Basildon Bond, Caesar’s master spy and self-styled master of disguise.
Back in Rome, Mark Anthony decides that he wants to be Caesar instead. And things get complicated when the British freedom fighters turn up, having hitched a ride aboard a Roman ship, posing as galley slaves. They also aim to take down Caesar, and the story concludes in three-way showdown in the Coliseum, where Clarence the cross-eyed lion plays a pivotal role in the eventual outcome.
A wonderfully funny panto, reminiscent of Carry On Cleo and featuring two side-splittingly funny stereotypical Essex-girl types, as the ugly sisters Britney and Whitney.
11 principals plus several smaller roles including some cameo roles and a chorus. Plenty of scope for doubling and even trebling up. Also includes a Horse and a Lion.
