I'm sorry but that had me cracked up - the mind boggles!!!

You could go haggis hunting!!! (sorry really helpful...)

Slightly more seriously, how about something like a condensed version of a Christmas carol: http://www.rinkworks.com/bookaminute...ns.carol.shtml (some of the others on there are brilliant as well!)

Or you could try a little skit. A few of us did this at a Church social thing a while back. I was prince charming (ha ha). It really needs one male, but with the best panto, you always have a lass as the 'head boy' anyway!

The five actors stand in a line. When it's your line you step forward slowly and lethargically to say it. Each line is said slowly with a deadpan face and monotone (with no emotion or expression, like you're bored) NEVER laugh at anything! (although that's hard and half the fun!)

For fellow UK-ers it's best done in a broad yorkshire/northern accent.

CINDERELLA - A NORTHERN PANTOMIME

NARRATOR: I'm the narrator.

CINDERELLA: I'm Cinderella.

UGLY SISTER: I'm an ugly sister.

FAIRY GODMOTHER: I'm the fairy godmother.

PRINCE CHARMING: I'm Prince Charming.

NARRATOR: Act 1, Scene 1, The Kitchen!

CINDERELLA: I'm working.

UGLY SISTER: I'm ugly.

FAIRY GODMOTHER: I'm beautiful.

PRINCE CHARMING: I'm handsome.

CINDERELLA: I'm not going to the ball.

UGLY SISTER: I am. Sweep the floor.

CINDERELLA: Alright.

UGLY SISTER: Press my dress.

CINDERELLA: Alright.

UGLY SISTER: Bring my cloak.

CINDERELLA: Alright - I can't go to the ball.

FAIRY GODMOTHER: Yes you can.

CINDERELLA: Alright.

NARRATOR: Act 1, Scene 2, Enter the coach and horses.

FAIRY GODMOTHER: Be back at 12.

CINDERELLA: Alright.

NARRATOR: Act 2, Scene 1, The Ball! Dong (x12).

CINDERELLA: I'm going.

PRINCE CHARMING: She's left her shoe.

NARRATOR: Act 2, Scene 2, The Kitchen.

PRINCE CHARMING: Try this shoe.

UGLY SISTER: It fits.

PRINCE CHARMING: No it doesn't. Try this shoe.

CINDERELLA: It fits.

PRINCE CHARMING: Marry me.

CINDERELLA: Alright.

UGLY SISTER: I'm sad.

CINDERELLA: I'm happy.

PRINCE CHARMING: I'm married. (said really depressed)

FAIRY GODMOTHER: I'm still beautiful.

NARRATOR: I'm exhausted.

CINDERELLA: I'm alright.

Maybe you guys could do like a nativity scene thing with a jesus, mary, joseph, an angel, and maybe a cow or something! Lol I'm not sure what skit you could do. Or maybe you guys could all dress as snowmen (I make fun of my mom because she is pre-metapausal and is always hot so maybe you could do like a melting theme or something?) I was just a snowman for halloween actually! Lol you can look in my picture album for a costume idea. Or maybe you guys could all be reindeer or elves. Lol I don't know, hope it helped

Depends on whether you want to go for laughs or not but you could do a short version of The Nutcracker. This works especially well if you're all naturally uncoordinated and born with two left feet, funny tutu's are a big plus. Or, you could do a version of 'A Christmas Carol' using the exaggerated personalities of co-workers. Or, dress up in classic Victorian Christmas Caroler garb and sing carols...and, if you want to really throw people, sing "funny" Christmas carols like "The 12 Pains of Christmas", etc.

Sorry, I guess I'm all about the laughter at Christmas time.
