Shows for the family

The World Without a Panto Claus               World Premiere!

by Carla Milarch and R. MacKenzie Lewis 

2017 was a bummer of a year. When Santa gets depressed, he decides to pack it in and disappear. Two of his elves search far and near looking for some genuine Christmas cheer. Arriving at a few decidedly un-Christmas-y locations, they face the wrath of the Heat and Snow Miser twins, the tropical town’s grumpy citizens, and a mysterious Russian bombshell named Vixen.
From the team that brought you An Almost British Christmas and Sugar Plum Panto, this hilarious romp is just what the therapist ordered to add a little levity to your holiday season. Bring the whole family to laugh, boo, hiss, and sing your way through another fun-filled night of heroes and villains, updated pop songs, holiday favorites, and merriment.
The Year Without a Panto Claus features Ramona Burns, Lisa Michaels, and Scott Screws with William Powers and Coleman Grengs taking turns playing the role of Iggy. Directed by by Melissa Freilich. The production and design team includes R. Mackenzie Lewis (music director/composer), Forrest Hejkal (scenic design), Cal Schwartz (costume design), Allan McMillan (lighting design), Carla Milarch (choreography), Becky Fox (props), and Michelle Resnick (stage manager).
