Tangly, A Holiday Panto by Rory Lambert
Tangly is a Christmas Pantomime that blends Rapunzel with a pinch of Rumplestiltskin, a tablespoon of Gift of the Magi and a heaping helping of the classic Newfoundland Mummers Play. When spunky Rapunzel Rhubarb is kidnapped by the Old Hag, it’s up to Buttons to save her. With a pocketful of sea urchins, a pet jellyfish and a gang of pals at his side he’ll venture up the harbour and down the shore; from Greens Harbour to Old St. John’s Towne to the depths of the Winter Woods and magical Macaroni Tower to save the day. A play brimming with song and dance, magic spells, audience interaction and zany wit and charm, Tangly will kick off Christmas with a smile on your face and a glow in your cheeks. This is a show for the whole family to enjoy.
