The Theatre Nova holiday Panto tradition continues for another year, complete with all the zany antics you’ve come to expect from this raucous family entertainment. When young Clara’s Christmas dream goes awry, an outrageous cast of characters appears to entertain her and save her from the Mouse King. Bring the whole family for this festive holiday tradition, with local celebrities, original songs, a Bee-oo-ti-ful Panto Dame, and of course, all of the candy you can eat!
Dan Morrison, Sonja Marquis and Sarah Briggs-Stevens perform a variety of parts including characters from the Nutcracker such as Clara and the Mouse King, along with Tante Drosselmeyer, this year’s iteration of the traditional Panto Dame. Featuring brand new songs by R. MacKenzie Lewis, “Kick Butt” and “Tick Tock,” in addition to some classical pieces from the Nutcracker Ballet by Tchaikovsky, and reimaging of modern songs.
