    I know a competition pantomime piece cannot include any music that has lyrics, but a few years ago we did one just for fun at a winter showcase. We spliced together several classic Christmas songs such as you're a mean one Mr. Grinch, Santa baby, let it snow, etc. We then scripted out a group to come out and pretend to be kindergartners at a Christmas concert with two of the students acting as teachers kneeling in front of them. It was hysterical to watch the typical personalities of kindergartners come to life. We had one that stood there and refused to do any of the movements. We also gave them cotton balls for let it snow, A baby doll for Santa baby, at Cetera.  The audience loved it and people still talk about it.
