The Snow Queen: New Holiday Comedy in the British Panto Style
Fremont Centre Theatre (South Pasadena, CA)
South Pasadena’s Fremont Centre Theatre presents an all-new musical comedy, The Snow Queen, told in the traditionally wacky style of English panto. Based on classic children’s stories and performed during the holiday season, pantos are a fun mash-up of fairy tale, slapstick comedy and audience participation, where you’re invited to boo the villain and cheer on the hero. This world premiere re-imagines Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale of magic mirrors, captive reindeer and a pair of playmates who battle the evil title character, and features live music and Yuletide fun for the family.
