Poor Dorothy! When a pipeline bursts, Dorothy and Toto are flung to the magical Land of Oz – Nanaimo and Hastings. There, Dorothy is pursued by a Wicked Witch, meets a trio of new friends, and embarks on a magical journey to the World’s Greenest City in search of brains, heart, courage…and yoga pants! Remember: there’s no place like Poco, there’s no place like PoCo!

Heather Redfern, Executive Director at The Cultch says: “The Panto is turning six! Time really flies when you’re having fun! The Panto is also about celebrating local artists, local places, and local families. It is for everybody and we are so thankful for all the love the Panto receives each year. This year, we’re excited to see the return of Panto faves Veda Hille, Dawn Petten, Raugi Yu and Stephen Drover, along with new additions to the Panto family: Christine Quintana, Craig Erickson, and celebrated playwright Marcus Youssef. Go Panto, Go!”
