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 'The Snow Queen' in January 2019 will be the Pantoloons' 37th 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.

is over for another year
to find out more about what we do
Join the Pantoloons as they present another feast of fun for the whole family with their traditional panto version of 'The Snow Queen' - it promises to be the coolest family panto.
The village of Torvoren is a ski resort with a problem. It has no snow. Mayor Carlsberg has a plan to save the village, but the Snow Queen doesn’t like it and plans to stop it. Kai and Gerda have lived in Torvoren all their lives and are Best Friends Forever, and when the Snow Queen tricks Kai into coming with her to the Ice Palace, Gerda sets out to rescue him and bring him home. On her journey she is helped by Kai’s grandma Svetlana, some unusually helpful animals and some tap-dancing elves. However, there are dangers awaiting her in the Frozen Forest. Will a snow storm stop her journey? Will she make it past the wolves? Will she be able to complete her journey and bring Kai home? Will Torvoren ever have snow 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, surprises galore and lots and lots of audience participation. Oh yes there is!
