About the Author

Alan Frayn is firmly established as one of the most popular present day pantomime writers.  As Entertainment Director at Alton Towers, Alan wrote and directed all productions there over a 6-year period.  And since, with his well-earned reputation in family entertainment, he has created numerous professional pantomimes and story-based ice shows, which have been performed all over the world. 

With over 27,500 professional and countless amateur performances of Alan's scripts, his shows have delighted audiences as far afield as Bahrain, Beirut and Hong Kong.  In recent years, he has written many scripts for one of the largest scale pantomimes in the UK.  Staged at a major 2,500 seat concert venue, this sells out to an audience of approximately 60,000 annually.  Like so many other pantomime producers, they were struggling to find scripts that were traditional, yet recently written, modern in style and with stacks of up-to-date comedy. 

This new series of 19 ground-breaking scripts enable his pantomimes to be staged in all sorts of venues, from village halls to large theatres without compromising the quality and content of the original offerings.  Alan's experience and originality have now breathed new life into all the traditional pantomime favourites, together with several more unusual and original themes, enabling you to produce pantomime at its best!

“…Alan Frayn is firmly established as one of the most popular present day writers and his scripts continue to go from strength to strength, with 150 productions choosing one of his pantomimes again this season. As former Director of Entertainment at Alton Towers, Alan has a well-earned reputation in family entertainment and with many years’ experience writing and directing professional pantomime, it’s not surprising his new series of fun-filled scripts are in such demand! Whilst traditional in style, Alan’s pantomimes are aimed firmly at audiences of today, being refreshingly original, fast-moving and packed with present day comedy.  They are also amazingly flexible, being suited to straightforward staging but offering plenty of opportunities for the more ambitious.  All aspects are well explained in extensive production notes and each script is revised and updated every year. Available from Stage Right Creative Ltd, this new generation of pantomime scripts includes “Cinderella”, “Jack & the Beanstalk”, “Aladdin”, “Dick Whittington”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs”, “Sinbad the Sailor”, “Mother Goose” and “Humpty Dumpty”, together with true pantomime adaptations of “Treasure Island” and “Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves”, not to mention Alan’s acclaimed version of “Robinson Crusoe & the Pirates” with a vibrant South American opening and finale. Released last summer, a new panto version of “Beauty & the Beast” is already proving extremely popular, or for something a little different, why not try “The Twelve Days of Christmas” – a totally original, but traditional style pantomime, or “Adventure in Pantoland” – a celebration of pantomime, ideal for an anniversary production.  Also, shortly to be released is Alan’s brand new pantomime adaptation of “The Snow Queen."
