Seal Slippers: A Hall Family Panto

December 18, 2019 - December 21, 2019

December 12-15 & 18-21, 2019, 7pm
December 14 & 21, 2019, 2pm*

Part of RCA Theatre Company’s 2019-20 Hall Pass.

The Hall Family Panto is back, this time blending the story of Cinderella and classic teen movies of the 80’s, with a dash of the traditional Newfoundland Mummers play mixed in. It’s the night before the big dance and Buttons and his friends have to help Cinderella get to the ball – but the Old Hag has plans of her own and you know she’s going to do whatever it takes to stop her.
