Alice in Wonderland: A Pantomime
January 1, 2022
735 Eighth Avenue New Westminster, BC V3M 2R2 Canada
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and pantomimes are back to make you laugh, cheer and boo! Written by Crystal Weltzin, the classic story of Alice in Wonderland is adapted to the well known standards of laughter and entertainment inherently required by a true PANTO. With original music, new characters and some of your panto favourites, this show will be bringing you silly puns and terrible jokes you’ve never heard before. Alice is bored with her current life and dreams of something new and exciting. In her quest, she follows a strange rabbit down, down, DOWN into Wonderland! Stumbling upon sweet princesses, crazy tea parties and a rather short Queen of Hearts; Alice learns to make new friends and problem solve in this bizarre realm. Full of your favourite panto characters including the boisterous Dame, Fairy Queen, and Demon King; this show is loads of fun for the whole family! Pantomime is loud for small ears and spectacular sights can sometimes cause tears! Please be aware, one or two scenes are intended to scare.
All the jokes and laughter, however, ensures that we finish Happily Ever After.
