Cinderella Christmas delights families with a British pantomime-style musical version of the classic tale. Focusing on spectacle and audience interaction, a panto combines singing, dancing, stage magic, and slapstick into a toothsome comedic concoction that enthralls children while keeping parents engaged with subtle tax-code-based humor. Music from Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson, and Michael Bublé season fairy-tale proceedings with contemporary verve while choreography by Dancing With the Stars alum Mark Ballas tickles ocular orbs with onstage spectacle. The talented cast includes veteran chucklesmith Fred Willard playing Cinderella’s hapless father, Shoshana Bean of Wicked fame, and a live pony that is just trying to paying the bills until it scores a spot in a Mr. Ed remake.
Opened in 1926, the art-deco El Portal Theatre proffers show-goers a cozy, elegant space in which they can enjoy panto proceedings. Recently revamped seating cushions rear ends and protects eggs that are incubating in back pockets. All guests receive a complimentary piece of British candy to keep sweet teeth sedated.
