Moby Dick, the Panto...and now for something completely different! 

 Moby Dick, the British Panto! closed to sold out audiences. A good time was had by all! The Splinter Group Theatre will return with a new show next December. 

This is what you missed: 

You’ve seen the film! Played the game! Pretended to read the book in 9th Grade! Now, you can experience Moby Dick, the British Panto! Join Ahab and friends, as they pursue the dreadful fish, Moby Dick! See Moby chase them back! Find out if anyone does really call him Ishmael! Duck the flying wee harpoons! As our 9th grade English teacher, Ms. Maria says, “Moby Dick, what’s not to like? It’s “Important Literature,” and it tastes good! ” Guaranteed holiday fun for the whole family, with unstoppable interactive craziness, and lots of candy! From the same folks who brought you British Panto for the last ten years!

This live theater production is directed by Luther Hanson, with musical direction by Kathleen Poe, and a cast of thousands! Well, fifteen.
