East Van Panto:
Wizard of Oz
What: Vancouver's alternative pantomime is back for a sixth year with a decidedly local and highly satirical take on witch-tastic classic The Wizard of Oz (after last year's wildly popular Snow White). Expect a rollicking good time as the jokes fly thick and fast, alongside references to yoga pants, burst pipelines and the magical land of Oz (aka Nanaimo and Hastings). Whatever happens, never forget: "There's no place like Poco, there's no place like Poco."
When: November 28 to January 6, 2018
Where: York Theatre, 639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver; 604-251-1363
Cost: Tickets $24 to $69
