Puss In Boots Traditional British Panto Opens In December At Globus Theatre

KAWARTHA LAKES-Globus Theatre has announced its 16th annual British Panto, Puss in Boots from December 6-17.

In this traditional British Panto, written by Sarah Quick, Harry, Dame Tallulah Tart’s youngest son, has inherited a Cat. But not just any cat…this cat can talk! Join us as we go on an adventure with Harry and discover where Puss’ gift of the gab will take them. Into a world of madcap characters, dastardly villains and a Princess that Harry is determined to marry!

Pantomime traditionally takes place around Christmas and is usually based on a well-known children’s story. It has been a British Christmas tradition for over 200 years.

As with all British pantomimes, prepare for hilarious, colourful and crazy fun with traditional characters. While the kids will enjoy the action, songs and audience participation, local references and innuendos ensure that adults will LOVE the story just as much, if not more.

Sarah Quick says, “I am so excited to have so many children participating in this year’s panto! So many in fact that we have three separate casts so that all of them have great parts that allow them to shine. There are lots of new faces that have grown up enjoying the panto as audience members and have now chosen to hit the stage; alongside kids that are now performing in their 7th panto! And of course, James taking the role of the Dame for his 16th time – he truly is a sight to behold! It’s a time of great joy here at Globus Theatre and we can’t wait to entertain the schools that are coming and the families that make it part of their holiday season every year.”

Globus’ yearly panto is the one opportunity for community actors both young and young at heart to perform with the theatre’s professional company! This year we have more than 40 local youth participating. Many of the cast are enthusiastic participants from Globus’ School of Dramatic Arts who are joined by writer and Artistic Director Sarah Quick, Artistic Producer James Barrett and Rhys Bernier, a graduate from Randolph College of Performing Arts.

Puss in Boots is also excited to be presenting 6 sold-out school shows including ones for Bobcaygeon, Dunsford, Ridgewood and Fenelon, before opening to the public from December 8 to December 17.

Whether you know a cast member or just want to experience the fun and action of the panto, make sure to get your tickets now. There are evening performances at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and matinee performances at 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. You can add a delicious 3 course Christmas dinner before the performance for Friday and Saturday evenings.  This is a wonderful way to start a new holiday tradition so don’t delay in getting your tickets now by visiting our website globustheatre.com or calling our box office 705 738 2037
