Saucy humour, cross-dressing, a sprinkle of magic and a cast of tenths of hundreds: it must be the LAL Torbay pantomime. For ten years I was involved – one way or another – in all the pantomimes produced at the LAL Torbay language school in Paignton. A madcap collision of a very British theatre tradition with students from all over the world, what started out as a hastily pulled together idea a decade ago has somehow become a fixture in the school’s calendar.
