The Portland Panto Players present traditional British Pantomime. Panto (as we call it) is a boisterous, family-friendly holiday event filled with slapstick, witty dialogue, great music, and a few wink-wink jokes for the adults.
Every year, we retell a classic fairy tale featuring outrageous characters and uplifting moments. Our shows get both kids and adults cheering, laughing, and having a wonderful time.
Panto is Interactive Theater and the audience becomes a big part of the show. Everyone is encouraged to sing along with the music, to hiss or jeer at the villain, and to offer a sympathetic "awwwww" to the rejected dame who is desperately seeking love. Interaction is a big part of the fun, oo bring your loudest cheering voices.
Only one thing matters at a Panto... that the audience, the cast and the crew have a ton of fun. So come and watch a great show and be ready to be part of the action. Pantos are wildly popular in England because it's an all-ages holiday show. You'll be hard-pressed to decide if is a kid's show that also appeals to adults, or the other way around.
