The Best Pantomime Opening Numbers

by | Sep 21, 2020

The pantomime’s opening number sets the standard for the audience of the show they’re about to enjoy. You want it to grab your attention, to ‘wow’ and to be high energy. It’s often following some kind of prologue, so bringing the audience into the colourful world of the pantomime is essential. Here’s my list of songs which are perfect for for just that.

I hope this list gives you great inspiration for your next pantomime opening number. If you have any of your own suggestions to add to the list, let me know.
