a peter pan panto photoReturning once again to the Firehouse Center for the Arts, Theater in the Open is performing a holiday panto, full of bad puns, slapstick, and fairy-tale magic.

Presented by Theater in the Open and Firehouse Center for the Arts

Edward Speck and Joshua Shack know that we need a spring panto to celebrate the change in seasons at Maudslay State Park. This year, they’ll collaborate to create another completely original panto based on a beloved story, Peter Pan. Pirates, fairies and Lost Boys will abound in this whimsically goofy take on the J. M. Barrie classic.

Wondering what, exactly, a Panto is? Pantomime, or panto, is a long-standing musical-comedy theatrical tradition, performed throughout the United Kingdom, often during the holiday season. Panto is playful, inventive family entertainment that begins with a familiar story or fairy tale, then takes off from there. Part of the fun with panto is the audience participation — it takes only a few minutes to realize that the actors are having as much fun as the audience! With panto, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy, young and old, alike.

Expect to be entertained with holiday cheer and laughter for 1.5 hours with intermission.
