WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Putting the FUNNY back in family entertainment for New Yorkers of every hue. 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.
