Mekons/Hideout Christmas Pantomime

Oh how I wish I could go. I wish I could go.

Here is the pirate ship from last year! It took up almost the whole stage. Sorry for the rotten phone pic, but you get the idea. And it's fun for kids and adults.

The Second Annual Hideout

Christmas Viking/Dalek Panto*

in which is revealed the saga of Codfish Girl amongst vikings, daleks and the abominable snowwoman

The Hideout

Thursday 20th December, Friday 21st December and Saturday 22nd December

Two shows nightly (except 12/21)

7pm show all ages and family friendly

10pm show over 21 only and less friendly

$12 adults, $5 under 16's

Viking/Dalek/Pyrate or in fact any fancy dress encouraged

In keeping with British Christmas tradition, the Hideout will present its second pantomime* (see definition below) telling the story of Codfish Girl, her adventures with villanous vikings and her search for the magical allen wrench lost long ago by the Nordic Goddess Ikea. Expect plenty of cross dressing, bad viking jokes, ribald humor.

In the role he was born to play again and again, Jon Langford stars as Sister Hammerstrom, pantomime dame and Abbess of "Smogasbord on the Fjord" Friary, Kelly Hogan stars as Hogan the Horrible, Janet Bean as the Goddess Ikea and Tim Tuten appears as Friar Tut, the mouthy monk. Callie Roach will play the role of Codfish Girl, Mike Bulington is the Abominable Snow-woman. Moby Duck stars as the terrible Kwacken. Introducing for the second (and probably last) time a glittering galaxy of Hideout regulars masquerading as vikings, valkyries, daleks and one very large abominable snowwoman. Directed by Sally Timms, who has decided this must be the last time or else.

Seating is strictly limited to 60 people per show. Floor seating so bring your own cushions. Advance ticket purchase highly recommended. www.hideoutchicago.com.

Thank you, ye be warned.

*A pantomime is a traditional British Christmas play. Originally silent productions, the pantomimes are a mix of fairy stories, folk tales and much loved cartoons, which encourage audience participation. The audience becomes very involved in the performance, with lots of hissing and booing of the villain and cheering for the hero. Some pantomimes include a song for the audience to join in with, and others invite children up onstage to chat to one of the performers. In pantomimes the male roles are often played by women and female roles by men.
