Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, Theatre Replacement has made the difficult decision to cancel PantoLand for 2020. We do so in order to ensure the safety of our staff, our contractors, and our community. During these uncertain times, we are focusing company resources on the creation of new artistic works, which is at the core of T/R’s mandate and which generates the most impact and opportunity for artists in our community. We look forward to PantoLand’s triumphant return in 2021.
PantoLand is our two, five-day creative summer camps for kids aged 5 – 10 based on the Panto form and inspired by our very own East Van Panto.
Over two weeks each summer, 70 local kids will be invited into the wacky and wonderful world of the Panto. They learn about the pantomime form, sing, dance, dress-up and create. Our camps are led by a team of accredited teachers as well as members of the East Van Panto’s creative team. At the end of the camp, participants will perform onstage at The Cultch for their families, friends and each other.
