Recommended for a general audience. As an advisory to adults who might bring young people, The Cultch recommends East Van Panto: Little Red Riding Hood for ages 5 and up. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
Here she comes! Little Red Riding Hood is bombing down the Adanac bike trail to deliver a basket of goodies to her sweet little granny. Easy, right? Not in the East Van Panto where everything gets real wacky, real fast! Cheer Little Red along as she battles everything from bike thieves to distracted drivers to The Big Bad Wolf. And what the heck are Three Little Pigs doing here?!
THE DRAW: Now in its fourth year, The Georgia Straight declares: “Theatre Replacement’s pantos just keep getting better because they keep getting wilder!”
The East Van Panto is now officially the best holiday tradition in Vancouver…I could happily see this show again and probably will” — Colin Thomas, colinthomas.ca
Thank you, Theatre Replacement and The Cultch, for the lovely Christmas present….I loved it. I really, really did. Best present ever” — Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier
A genuine local holiday classic back for its fourth nutty season…this incarnation of the East Van Panto retains all its joyous humour and characteristic pizzazz” — Jerry Wasserman, Vancouver Sun
As fresh, irreverent, and fun as its predecessors…If the East Van Panto isn’t part of your holiday tradition yet, what are you waiting for?” — Kathleen Oliver, Georgia Straight
