It’s a Saturday afternoon in Strathcona and rehearsals are under way for Jack & the Beanstalk: An East Van Panto. Opening night is less than two weeks away, and the show has the honour of being the premiere production at the freshly renovated York Theatre, the Cultch’s new venue. No pressure, right?
Well, if the cast and creators feel any, it’s not evident inside the basement of the Russian Hall. As they rehearse the second act, a few things emerge: this is a panto with some pretty significant twists. It’s hyperlocal, political, and hilariously weird.
