I have been waiting for a Lythgoe Pantos performance all year. Last year we kicked off our winter break with a pantos and it was a perfect way to begin the holidays. This year I want you to join us for an updated version of the classic fairy tale, Snow White as Princess Snow White joins forces with the Seven Dwarfs to defeat her wicked aunt, the Queen. In the style of British Panto, audiences are encouraged to interact, booing the baddies and cheering for the hero. A SNOW WHITE CHRISTMAS features family-friendly magic, with a comedic twist, dancing (with “So You Think You Can Dance” alumni), contemporary music and more.
Tickets start at $28 and can be purchased online at http://www.thepasadenacivic.com or by calling the box office at 626-449-7360. Golden Tickets, which allow the ticket holder (children ages 4 – 12 only) a special on-stage experience during the production, are available for an additional $85.00 each. This will be the eighth holiday season of Lythgoe Family Panto in Pasadena, and the third at the Pasadena Civic.
