Panto Come Home: Win A Holiday Cultch Box

Comments 22 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Is it really holiday theatre season in Vancouver without panto? In Panto Come Home from The Cultch this season you get a mix of all seven East Van Pantos, live from the York Theatre… with 350 pounds of past costumes!

Panto Come Home

Where: Online, streamed live from the York Theatre
When: December 17-27, 2020
Tickets: From $35. Single tickets on sale now through The Cultch’s Box Office (604) 251-1363 or online

In 2020’s Panto Come Home! Theatre Replacement’s Artistic Directors James Long and Maiko Yamamoto sneak into the York to find very sad pyjama clad Veda Hille parked at her piano. Seems she’s moved into the theatre and has been spending her days trying to relive Panto memories of old. In an attempt to cheer her up they call up a bunch of their Panto friends to sing and dance the greatest East Van Panto hits. Things go sideways fast when the Phanto of the Panto swoops in. He’s been watching these things ever since Jack and the Beanstalk opened the York 8 years ago and has a few choice ideas of his own. Physically-distanced antics ensue!

The chickens have been busy collecting an all-star cast of East Van Panto favourites including Dawn Petten (Jack and the BeanstalkCinderellaHansel and GretelWizard of Oz), Donna Soares (Cinderella), Amanda Sum (Pinocchio), Shawn Macdonald (Pinocchio), and Mark Chavez (writer, Little Red Riding HoodSnow White). Together, they will dig into the East Van Panto vault and remix the best of the last seven years into a brand new holiday extravaganza. From the ‘Cheese Song’ to the BC Ferry Godmother, Panto Come Home! is guaranteed to knock out the isolation blues and bring home the holidays.
