The Panto is back with an outrageous take on Snow White. In this East Van telling, our hero flees the Queen of North Vancouver across the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge and straight into the madness of the PNE, where she dances with Superdogs, takes a ride on the Coaster, and befriends washed up 80s rock stars “The Seven Dwarves.” Pure Panto hilarity ensues as they do everything they can to escape the Queen’s wicked clutches.

Such is the frantic warning inscribed to us in the strange and ancient poem known as Jabberwocky… but what monster does it actually mean?  Is it fanged or flapping, furry or finned, ferocious or formless? Is it outside our bedroom door even now, drooling?  Or is it already amongst us?
