Lythgoe Family Productions produces fun, musical theatre the whole family can enjoy. Known for their creativity and involvement in television hits “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” the Lythgoes are dedicated to bringing affordable theatre to families across America. Based on the Grimm fairytales, each story has been modernized with topical scripts for parents and well known pop songs for kids. The Lythgoes pride themselves on creating a memorable experience a family can share together. Past Panto at The Playhouse productions include: A Snow White Christmas starring Ariana Grande and Neil Patrick Harris and Aladdin and His Winter Wish starring Ben Vereen, Bruce Vilanch, and Ashley Argota.

I know that we will once more have holiday magic, music, and enchantment on our stage with this production. We are beginning to put together a wonderful cast and creative team that I know will deliver this material with great style, wit, and theatricality.”

“We are so excited to be back for our third installment of Panto at The Playhouse! We continue our drive and passion, along with Sheldon Epps and Elizabeth Doran, to introduce new and young audiences to the theatre through Panto. With such a great cast, SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight is set to become the most successful Panto yet. The must see magical event for families this holiday season,” adds LFP producers Kris and Becky Lythgoe.

An updated version of the classic Grimm fairytale, in the style of a traditional British family Panto, SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight is a singing and soaring winter adventure that features family-friendly magic, with a comedic twist, dancing (with “So You Think You Can Dance” alumni), a live pony, interaction with the audience and contemporary music from Jessie J’s “Domino” to John Legend’s “All Of Me,” Pharrell Williams “Happy” to Survivor’s “Eye of The Tiger” and more. A Panto is known for its interactive style and humor that appeals to everyone from ages 2 – 102! “Those who have never been to a panto will have a glorious introduction to the forum.” – Los Angeles Times.

Before every performance, guests and their families are invited to enjoy a “Winter Wonderland” event in The Playhouse’s Engemann Family Courtyard, complete with holiday carolers, crafts, activities, games, Santa Claus and photo opportunities.

Unicef and Thirst project are great charities that are helping people in countries where kids don’t have enough food, water or medicine!

Thirst Project builds wells in villages providing life giving water. Without wells girls and woman must walk miles and miles a day on dangerous roads. The girls often can’t go to school if they are the ones who are in charge of getting water. Also, when people drink water from lakes, it is dirty and filled with animal feces and parasites. Millions of people especially children die from the diseases they get from dirty water.

Unicef gives food, water, shelter and medicine to people on need. The Ebola outbreak is killing 1000’s of people in some African countries and kids are becoming orphans. Unicef is finding and helping these kids.
