The Everyman and CADA presented an online stream of Once Upon a Time with The Everyman Panto Stars, filmed live from The Everyman stage. Children and their family gathered as The Everyman Panto Stars read the most popular and well-loved classic fairytales – and panto favourites!
And what’s more, we created this fun fairytale resource pack to be enjoyed by kids at home whose imaginations were sparked by Once Upon a Time.
Each Once Upon a Time with The Everyman Panto Stars episode included music, banter, catch phrases and lots of fun and laughter, and one special fairytale: Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk or Beauty and the Beast. There also was a really catchy TikTok dance in each episode!
