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 had no idea that East Van Panto was a holiday tradition for so many until I started running these contests, and no wonder! It’s such great fun.
I have family pack of tickets to give away (2 adult/2 child tickets) for the performance on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 2:00pm. Here’s how you can enter to win:
