Oh No it isn’t!

Oh YES it is ~ PANTO Time

Metro Theatre is thrilled to present our 37th original Holiday Panto ~ the timeless magical fairy tale Snow White.
The enchantment begins December 3, 2021 and continues through to January 3, 2022 with Evening performances at 7:30 pm and Matinees at 2 pm.
Our hero the fair Snow White, guided by The Dame, takes us through the enchanted forest, where we meet the Evil Queen, The Magic Mirror, and an odd selection of dwarfs in this zany and uproariously funny family pantomime.
There is nothing quite like the joy of Christmas pantomimes; the perfect way to get the entire family into the festive mood! So why not make a new Christmas tradition or resume an old one and book now.

Children (under 16) $25
Preview – the final dress rehearsal $25
Discounts available
for Groups of 10 or more

The Pied Piper – An Original Musical for Families

     “The Pied Piper” is a family musical based on the Fairy story “The Pied Piper of Hamelin ”. Inundated with a rat infestation the people don’t know where to turn. A stranger turns up – the Pied Piper.  He says he can rid the town of rats for a fee.
The Mayor ( a duplicitous soul ) talks the townspeople into taking the Pied Piper’s help and then reneging on their promise of payment. In retaliation the Pied Piper lures the children of the Village away . Two honest men in the Village track him down, negotiate with a promise of honest payment and the children are returned.
The Mayor is run out of town and all is happy. The townspeople have started to learn to think for themselves rather than relying on politicians with their own agenda!
Songs and dances abound in this show of an hour and a half with Performances from March 18 – 27, 2022 ( Spring Break)

     In this original, traditional Metro pantomime, Snow White meets all the usual characters, plus a few added surprises. Big production numbers and colourful costumes make this a Christmas-time family hit!

     Nunsense is a hilarious spoof following the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser; the ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and Mistress of the Novices Sister Mary Hubert. Together (mostly) they stage a talent show with large dreams and little talent. Laced with catchy, original songs, zany, irreverent, physical comedy and dancing from ballet to tap, Nunsense promises to keep audiences young and old rolling with laughter, the perfect antidote to the dark jim-jams of January!

Fun for the entire family!With some of Vancouver’s finest (and funniest) professional actors under the brilliant leadership of director GILLIAN BARBER and her team, this promises to be an unforgettable night of laughter in the theatre.
