East Van Panto:
The Little Mermaid
Theatre Replacement and the Cultch present...
Theatre Replacement’s EAST VAN PANTO—Vancouver’s favourite holiday tradition— celebrated its 10th Anniversary with THE LITTLE MERMAID!
Ariel is an environmentally-minded human teenager with a Dad who just doesn’t understand her, two annoying sisters, and a hermit crab for a best friend. After falling in love with a dreamy teenage mer-person at New Brighton Beach, Ariel makes a deal with the devilish octopus Ursula and dives into an ocean adventure!

"Amanda Testini pumps it all up with some creative choreography—most memorably for a song by Ursula that had dancers in black creating eight wriggling arms behind her. "
