PantoSF is back by popular demand with a brand new show featuring your amazing talents! We return home to our beloved theatre on Sutter Street now home to Custom Made Theatre with brand new “Sleeping Beauty, the holiday panto!”
“Cinderella a family musical holiday panto” 2013-14-15 created a new Bay Area Holiday tradition for thousands and the audience wants more!
PantoSF seeks musical theatre performers, clowns, vaudevillians and drag personalities to join our seasoned cast and welcomes new talent. Panto is like commedia, tailored to the actors' schtick and skills, so I could see incorporating as much as you like within the narrative. Famous actors, celebrities and drag names have graced the stage of panto including Ian McKellan, Danny Dela Rue and the Hoff!
