East Van Panto Presents Pinocchio: Win Tickets

Comments 31 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Cultch presents Theatre Replacement’s East Van Panto Pinocchio at the York Theatre from November 20, 2019 to January 5, 2020. East Van Panto returns for a seventh year, welcoming back the creative team behind last year’s hit Wizard of Oz: playwright Marcus Youssef, composer Veda Hille, and director Stephen Drover.

East Van Panto Presents Pinocchio

Where: York Theatre ( 639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver)
When:  November 20, 2019 – January 5, 2020 
Tickets:  On sale now at The Cultch’s Box Office by phone at (604) 251-1363 or online starting at $26.  Enjoy a post-show artist talkback on November 30th after the 2:00pm show.

When a lonely old ice-cream seller named Gelato is given a puppet by the mysterious Beckwoman of Commercial Drive, his dreams of having a child suddenly come true. Join a locally famous cricket, an angry orca, and a dastardly fox as poor Pinocchio does his best to tell everyone the truth and become a real boy. Will there be a Cappuccino War between the Abruzzos and the Calabrias? And why are all those kids ditching class to go to Hastings Racecourse? Don’t worry, Pinocchio—just follow your nose!

    I would like to gift a special family if I win tickets. Nico Gruzling is a recent VCC Grad who does a lot for the fashion/maker community and recently showed her kids and Science inspired clothing at Vancouver kids fashion week. She is a single parent of two kids who would love this show.
