1Read the text and do the tasks that followPantomimes 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 which 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.

I lay awake all night thinking about the next day, which was my birthday. My uncle Bob was going to take us to EuroDisney. At last, it was morning and I jumped out of bed. “Hurry! We can’t keep Uncle Bob waiting!” I shouted to my Dad and we set off. We arrived at EuroDisney and looked for my uncle but there was no sign of him. “Jenny, we’ve been waiting for ages. Why don’t we go on and check out the rides ourselves?” said Dad. When we got onto the rollercoaster I saw Mickey Mouse waving at me. Then later, as we walked towards the fairytale castle, we saw Mickey waving at me again. “That’s very friendly, isn’t it, Jenny?” said my mum. “He must do that to all other kids,” I said but I was secretly pleased. Before we knew it, it was time for lunch. We made our way towards the restaurant, and believe it or not, there was Mickey again, but this time with a huge birthday cake. “I think it’s your birthday today, young lady,” he said in a very familiar voice. He took off his big mask and there was my uncle Bob standing in front of me! My parents smiled and everyone wished me a happy birthday.
