Performances at the Pumphouse Theatre – December 5th to 14th, 2014
Elementary, Watson!…Whitsun? What’s going on? It’s Panto! Morpheus welcomes back this popular Christmas season tradition with classic characters of pantomime and fiction as everyone’s favourite detective solves the mystery at hand – young Dick Whittington has disappeared! He was last seen wearing lipstick, fishnets and high-heeled boots? Holmes and Whitsun are on the case! Join us as we flip genders, boo the villain and rejoice in the antics of the saucy Dame, Maisie Luvaduck. A sloshingly good time will be had by all. Case closed. Oh yes, it is!
