Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s time one again for our Spring Pantomime! This time around we’ll be following the adventures of Snow White as she takes a peek at what happens through the looking glass…!!! Edward Speck and Josh Shack have planned yet another silly, surprising, playful Spring panto, free to all. Prepare for puns, princesses, passion and improbable plots with some of your favorite fairy tale and literary characters!
Wondering what, exactly, a Panto is? Pantomime, or panto, is a long-standing musical-comedy theatrical tradition, performed throughout the United Kingdom, often during the holiday season. Panto is playful, inventive family entertainment that begins with a familiar story or fairy tale, then takes off from there. Part of the fun with panto is the audience participation — it takes only a few minutes to realize that the actors are having as much fun as the audience! With panto, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy, young and old, alike.
