The Little Mermaid A Traditional English “Panto” A tidal wave of comedy! We’ll be making a splash this holiday season with the silliest musical under the sea! “Boo” the villain, “cheer” the hero and join us for an English tradition that has been a holiday staple since the nineteenth century! We’re proud to bring a little old England to New England! ?What's a panto? A tradition dating back to the Victorian times, a panto is a musical featuring a mix of showtunes and pop music, great dancing, silly (sometimes saucy) humor, slapstick, etc. Great for little kids but teens and adults also enjoy the double entendres and "in" jokes.
