Theatre Replacement’s An East Van Panto is back!
The top team of Amiel Gladstone, Veda Hille, and Charles Demers return to the York with a way beyond Disney retelling of sweet little Cinderella. Have you ever read the original version? It’s messed up! Bring the family back to the York for some upside-down holiday cheer and watch as we dress up some of Vancouver’s favourite performers in fairy tale finery and set them loose on this fantastic East Vancouver tradition.
Recommended for a general audience. As an advisory to adults who might bring young people, The Cultch recommends Cinderella: An East Van Panto for ages 5 and up.
Written by Charles Demers
Music by Veda Hille
Directed by Amiel Gladstone
All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
Please note: This show is performed at the York Theatre

It’s rowdy, it’s musical, it’s a heap of fun for the kids and, best of all, writer Charlie Demers jam-packs it with so many digs at current affairs (look out, Kinder Morgan, Mike Duffy and BC Ferries) that it’s a hoot-and-a-half for grownups, too” — The Vancouver Courier
