 Panto is an historic staple of British popular theatre that has never successfully crossed the Pond. It is family-orientated satire using certain stock characters and traditions (including cross-dressing, interactivity and music) to retell a fable in a more recognizable setting. The OPTimistiks are bringing this culturally & socially harmonizing feature of the British stage to New York, with a contemporary rendition of Dick Whittington; here a poor, upstate boy follows his star to NYC where he crosses paths with the scheming Sara Pain and bungling Mayor Gloomberg in a quest for success on Simon Trouser’s P-Factor Talent Contest.theoptimistiks.org
