The Cultch and Theatre Replacement Present
Cinderella: An East Van Panto

December 3 – 28, 2014
The York Theatre

Theatre Replacement’s An East Van Panto is back!

The top team of Amiel Gladstone, Veda Hille and Charles Demers return to the York with a way beyond Disney retelling of sweet little Cinderella. Have you ever read the original version? It’s messed up! Bring the family back to the York for some upside-down holiday cheer and watch as we dress up some of Vancouver’s favourite performers in fairy tale finery and set them loose on this fantastic East Vancouver tradition.
