Classic tales of the Arabian Nights are given a traditional panto send-up in North Shore Community College's (NSCC) Performing Arts Council's The Fantastic Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor, A Winter Panto*mime, a rousing, awe-inspiring adventure that will warm adventurers of every age.
Performances will be held at The Neal Rantoul Vault Theatre, at Lynn Arts, Inc., 25 Exchange St., Lynn on December 1, 2, and 3 at 7 p.m., and also on December 3 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $7 general admission, $5 for students and seniors (with ID). Children 10 and under are free.
Join Sinbad and his merry crew of misfits as they set out to find the wonderful Pearl of Possibilities and free the Princess from the curse of an evil Sorceress! "Forget what you think you know about pantomime for you will find none of it in this traditional Victorian 'Panto'," NSCC Performing Arts Coordinator Matthew Woods explains. "Instead you will discover a topsy-turvy world where the Principal Boy is played by a girl, the Grand Dame is really a man, animals can dance, bad puns and witty word-play are the order of the day, and, at the center of the spectacle -- the most important element of all -- the battle of good versus evil is played out against a fairy tale backdrop."
The Fantastic Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor is written and directed by Woods and features a cast of NSCC students, faculty and alumni. Costumes are designed by Cotton Talbot Minkin.
