TASK №10
Read the text and do the tasks that follow

Pantomimes are very popular in Britain at Christmas. Most big towns and cities have their own pantomime. This is a humorous musical play usually performed in the open air. A pantomime is usually based on a traditional story everyone knows, and the show itself is very exciting, with lots of jokes, songs and dancing. Sometimes the audience takes part in the performance, too.
The tradition began over two hundred years ago and has been a part of Christmas celebrations ever since. At first it was merely an entertainment for children, but now adults enjoy it as much. Of course, there have been a lot of changes over the years. Some elements like joking and singing were added, but the basic plot has remained the same. Every pantomime must have three main characters: a young man, a young lady and a “dame”. The first two always marry at the end, and the dame, the comic figure, tries to prevent them from doing it.
There are all possible kinds of pantomimes and a lot of famous singers or comedians take part in them. Thus the old tradition is enriched with modern ideas and fresh forces, which is so typical of the British.
