The Pantoloons have been staging pantomimes at the British School of Brussels (BSB) for more than 35 years. In winter 1982/83 a small group of BSB staff and parents put on a production of 'Snow White', and over 35 years later we're still putting on pantos to expats and locals here in Belgium. Our production of 'Alice in Wonderland' in January 2020 will be the Pantoloons' 38th panto at BSB.
Although panto is a very British tradition, our members come from many different countries. The group is made up of current and former BSB staff, parents and students. We're always seeking new members, so if you think that you'd like to join us, find out more about how you can get involved. For some of our members their very first experience of a panto was setting foot on stage at BSB or helping backstage with one of our productions. No previous experience of panto or acting is required.
If you're interested in seeing one of our pantomimes, have a look at our upcoming show and book your tickets. To see some of our previous productions, check out our gallery.
You'll find we welcome new members every year and would love to have you join us. We are a very friendly and hard working group. Putting on a high-quality panto can be a lot of work, but it's also great fun and very rewarding.

The Pantoloons are proud to present Alice in Wonderland – the Curiouser and Curiouser Pantomime!
Come and meet Alice, our intrepid heroine, whose curiosity takes her all the way down a rabbit-hole and into the magical world of Wonderland. Join her on a fantastical journey and meet some crazy characters along the way – the unusual Mad Hatter, the mysterious Cheshire Cat, the hilarious Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and the slightly scary Queen of Hearts!
What will happen to Alice in this amazing land? Will good finally triumph over evil? And how will she ever get home again?
This family show has music, jokes, drama and all the fun and laughter you have come to expect from a Pantoloons production. It's sure to be a sell-out, so don’t miss your chance to see it. If you have never been to a panto before, come along for one of the craziest theatre events you could hope to see. There are wonderful characters, fabulous costumes and scenery - and lots and lots of audience participation. Oh yes there is!
