Pantomime Contracts

Pantomime Contracts

The message below is from Karrim Jalali, Equity.

As we start looking forward to this year’s pantomime season, many panto producers are now contracting or have already contracted performers and stage management. If you are contracted or have any current or upcoming contract offers, please send a copy of your contract to review at

We want to make sure that your rights are being honoured and make you aware of what you can do to assert your rights if they’re not (even at the end of the engagement). This can be a powerful way to drive improvements in working terms and conditions in the industry, and put money in our members’ pockets.

You can read our advice about the typical employment rights of performers and stage management here.
