Metro Theatre - 1370 SW Marine Drive
Fee Fi Fo Fum- It’s time for panto fun!
The Metro Theatre has a tradition of presenting a pantomime every year around Christmastime. Pantomimes are a British family-friendly tradition – they combine a fairy-tale story with silly song and dance numbers, as well as zany characters that interact with the audience. They’re a great introduction for children of all ages to the magic of theatre, and Metro’s been putting them on for nearly 30 years!
This year’s pantomime is the beloved story of a young lad named Jack – poor, but honest – with a delightful (if comical) mother named Dame Trott (Trotty to her friends). Their only possession of any worth is their cow Daisy. But they are in such strained circumstances they are forced to sell her! Oh, no!
And, what’s a beanstalk story without a giant? Yup, we’ve got one – the GIANT Giant Eyesore who constantly terrorizes the village. Someone has to save them by climbing the beanstalk to his castle in the clouds. But who could that be? Come and find out!
The pantomimes are fun for the entire family – kids have a blast interacting with the story unfolding on stage, and adults laugh their way through the pop-culture references. In past years, we’ve been known to sell out, so don't miss out!
The show runs December 13 through January 4:
Evenings at 7pm on Dec. 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28, and Jan. 2, 3 and 4
Matinees at 2pm on Dec. 14, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29 and Jan. 1 and 4
