Scripts by this Author


Aladdin & The Pirates - Pantomime Scripts - All Groups

Brian Luff's new version of Aladdin has Abanazer as an evil pirate captain. Apart from that, the plot has all the features you would expect: a beautiful princess, Widow Twankey, Wishee Washee, two genies - and a penguin called Monty! Plus, lots of funny gags and clever wordplays. And pirates, ha-harr! "A very clever script with many modern twists - a superb example of the panto art!" - NODA

Cinderella & The Crystal Slipper - Pantomime Scripts - All Groups

Brian Luff's script puts a number of fresh spins on the story while at the same time delivering a traditional family panto with all the usual trimmings. It's crammed with fast, snappy wordplay, accessible modern references and two hilarious slapstick routines. There's something for all the family! The emphasis is very much on comedy, which is provided by the Ugly Sisters as well as a daft duo of party planners called Mr Muggsy and Mr Puggsy who orchestrate the Grand Ball at the palace as well as spending most of the time trying to escape the romantic clutches of the Ugly Sisters.

Mr Scrooge the Panto - Pantomime Scripts - All Groups

Based on A Christmas Carol - one of the most popular Christmas stories of all time - this is a traditional family pantomime with everyone's favourite festive ingredients. While staying true to the original story and using some of Charles Dickens' original dialogue, Brian Luff's new script includes loads of snappy banter, knockabout humour and slick comedy routines. It features Mrs Fezziwig as a panto dame and theres an hilarious double act called McKinley & Maconie, a couple of out-of-work actors turned charity fundraisers. The production requires a very large cast (doubling is recommended) and there are plenty of parts for children.
