September’s Vancouver calendar features important dates and events in the Lower Mainland including shows, concerts, spring festivals, markets and events.
The Cultch is implementing accessible performances starting this fall. (i.e. “relaxed” performances for those with Autism, Tourette’s & other neurological conditions who cannot sit still & quiet for an hour or more). They have scheduled a relaxed show of the Panto on Dec 2, matinee.

Normally, the Panto is already a kid-friendly show where they are encouraged to cheer & boo for characters & talk back to the stage. Each Panto is based on a classic fairy tale or kids’ story, this year it’s Wizard of Oz. It’s a really fun show for adults too, with lots of double entendres & local cultural references & spoofs of local characters, politicos etc.
