In the UK, December and January are traditional times to stage a pantomime. Taking that to heart, the Bhaktivedanta Players performed a hilarious and lively parody of the Wizard of Oz.
Based on the original classic story, the many of the characters represented different types of obstacles on the path to devotional service and the story-line was based around an internal spiritual journey.
Adults and children alike were laughing throughout, and the costumes and decorations were breathing-taking. It truly was something for the community, which left everyone who saw it with a smile and a sense of optimism!
“The feedback from the audience was excellent!” exclaimed director Jaya Krishna das. One parent added “The Bhaktivedanta Players have surpassed themselves yet again with a super-enjoyable panto. My children were over the moon with it!”
