Panto Come Home
December 17 - December 27
In 2020’s Panto Come Home! Theatre Replacement’s Artistic Directors James Long and Maiko Yamamoto sneak into the York to find very sad pyjama clad Veda Hille parked at her piano. Seems she’s moved into the theatre and has been spending her days trying to relive Panto memories of old. In an attempt to cheer her up they call up a bunch of their Panto friends to sing and dance the greatest East Van Panto hits. Things go sideways fast when the Phanto of the Panto swoops in. He’s been watching these things ever since Jack and the Beanstalk opened the York 8 years ago and has a few choice ideas of his own. Physically-distanced antics ensue!
It's a Wonderful Life
December 15 - December 24
It’s Christmas Eve and George Bailey is on the edge of ruin. With seemingly no way to save the old Bailey Building & Loan, George wonders if the world would be better off had he never lived? With the help of a rookie angel and a cast of charming characters, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE reminds us that we are each extraordinary and important. This treasured holiday classic is a story of love and redemption brought to life in the style of a 1940’s Radio Broadcast.
All is Bright
December 19 - December 31
Filled with Manitoba artists, and conceived and directed by Artistic Director Kelly Thornton, ALL IS BRIGHT is a love letter to theatre. Brimming with storytelling and song, we come together to celebrate the holidays.
