It’s Panto Time!
The HVT Annual Holiday Panto is the perfect family theatre experience. Our Panto starts each December and continues until early January. There are matinees and evening shows all throughout the holiday season. Auditions are in August and tickets go on sale in September (info available on this website and our Facebook page.)
In the Beginning
It all began in 2000, when Heather Markgraf-Lowe, the founder of Hudson Village Theatre, began the annual fundraiser for the theatre by enlisting the help of the local community to stage a classic British Panto (a family tradition of her own from growing up in the UK). Young and old responded to the call and a tradition was born! Since that time, we have produced 17 Pantos: Aladdin (2001 and 2010), Cinderella (2002 and 2013), Sleeping Beauty (2003), Jack & The Beanstalk (2004), Snow White (2005), Treasure Island (2006), The Emperor’s New Clothes (2007), Beauty and the Beast (2008), Little Red Riding Hood (2009), Goldilocks and the Three Bears (2011), Puss ‘N’ Boots (2012), Robin Hood (2014), Peter Pan (2015), The Wizard of Oz (2016) and Camelot (2017).
