PA Panto Presents Goldilocks & the Ultimate Rampage

Once upon a time there was a town, that when the holidays came, was drizzly and grey. Then along came the Winter Ice Village and Panto to drive the dreary away.  The ice rink is back, brighter and better than ever and along with it, it’s partner PAPANTO to add laughter and merry!

We can’t wait to share with you, your family and friends our latest rendition of PA’s Holiday Classic – PAPANTO – Goldilocks and the Ultimate Rampage.  This year, to accommodate our sell out crowds, we are also happy to announce that we will have the performances at Peninsula College Little Theatre. More space to show off our singing and dancing and for even bigger audiences to boo the villain, cheer for the hero and laugh until your eyes tear up. You are cordially invited to attend and please share the joy.  Let the wild rumpus start!

Goldy owns a diner, and her BFF Rose is supportive but wants adventures of her own. The Big Bad Wolf has a secret and the bears and pigs are feuding. Pantoland is in an uproar and mistrust is running rampant. Why are there so many trash pandas running around, and will Frederick Fox ever find a job with health benefits? Singing, dancing and the good kind of mayhem await at this year’s panto!

What is Panto?

Panto, or Pantomime for those of us who like additional consonants, is an ancient art form.

From it’s rich lineage of a guy named Sid realizing he had a need to stand in front of people and emote in Ancient Rome, to that one lady you nearly recognize from Eastenders (a show in Britain that has been on television for nearly as long) playing the fairy godmother in a Panto in Durham, it has been a staple of British culture for centuries.

There are rules. There is etiquette. All of it requires you to be silly, and downright boisterous. The interactive nature of Panto is what makes it perfect for our little hamlet of Port Angeles.

Northwesterners don’t like to be told what to do. It’s why we can say with absolutely no irony at all that we’re wearing our ‘good flannel’ on date night, and why socks are a natural pairing with Birkenstock’s (“My feet get cold”).

We appreciate culture, but don’t stand on ceremony. And we like to laugh. So, whether you’re an Anglophile, a comedy lover or someone who needs to get the kids out of the house for a couple of hours this holiday season, come and join us! Celebrate what one theater called, “a raucous comedy filled with music and one-liners you’ll have to see at least twice”, and another described as “I have no idea what just happened, but I want it to happen again!”

This British tradition with an American twist is here to stay. Written by a local playwright, and staged with local actors, there’s so much for you to enjoy. Come be part of the fun!
