The reviews for Cinderella: An East Van Panto are in!

Theatre Replacement’s Cinderella: An East Van Panto started its amazing run last week at the York Theatre. Patrons and critics are unanimous: this pantomine is a huge succes! Writer Charlie Demers and the cast are on top of their game! Read the rave reviews below:

Read in the news:

“Go. Take somebody you love. Start a holiday tradition” – The Georgia Straight

“A refreshing romp… Here’s hoping this truly is the beginning of a homegrown tradition” – The Vancouver Sun

“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 Courrier

“Zany, zany, zany is how I’d describe this year’s East Van Panto, a melange of the Disney classic, with East Vancouver characters” – Review Vancouver

“Kids & parents giggle galore at Cinderella antics” – Broken Leg Reviews

“Theatre Replacement’s Cinderella: An East Van Panto is a lively, goofy and utterly charming take on the fairy tale, packed with local references and jammed with jokes that work for children and adults.” – The Globe And Mail
