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.
