In 2021 these classes have been taken online as the UK’s first Online Pantomime Workshops with a focus this year on providing youngsters with fun and interactive sessions and to keep the magic of Panto alive in 2020.
Kev Orkian Founder of the British Pantomime Academy says “2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, not least our children who have had their lives and routines disrupted and a lot of simple pleasures taken away from them. Many after school clubs, extracurricular activities, performing arts classes and academies have had to close due to the Pandemic and although Panto could be considered a somewhat niche genre it offers focus on all elements of the performing arts so we hope we may be able to help to bridge this gap”
“We are passionate about pantomime and know that many kids won’t have the opportunity to visit one his year, we are also keenly aware that families are looking for fun, rewarding and engaging experiences for their children during lockdown and holidays; we hope the BPA can offer both of these things and keep the magic of panto, such an ingrained and much loved tradition for many families, alive in 2020. There is no other course like it on the planet!”
The British Pantomime Academy also offers courses for professional and amateur adults looking to expand their skill set and pursue a career in Pantomime or just have fun.
