About the show:
Traditional British Panto at its rambunctious best! Sparkling, magical, family fun awaits when we join Sinbad and his wacky crew in a rollicking and hilarious adventure on the high seas. Come sing along with toe-tapping music, groan at corny old jokes, cheer the good guys and boo the bad in this hilariously funny show, as we say farewell to BC’s favourite Dame, Alan Cedargreen, when he wields his wooden spoon for one last time.
Sinbad is written and directed by BC’s own “Queen of Panto” Ellie King and features many of the panto stars who have been delighting audiences in BC for over 28 years. Patrons have been known to remark that they expected to walk out of the theatre into Oxford Street in London, so true is RCTCs panto to the British tradition, complete with Dame and Principal Boy, slapstick, music, dance, magic and the worst collection of corny old jokes in captivity. As always this is an original Canadian script featuring original music – both written specifically for the play.
