DEEP COVE SHAW THEATRE
• Santa in Space – Christmas pantomime, always popular entertainment for the young and young at heart. Deep Cove Stage Society began this tradition back in 1981 and this year marks Ben Maifredi’s 24th consecutive season of appearing in the pantos. This year, the evil alien Vileun has almost achieved her desire to rule the planets – all except Earth. She decides to blackmail Earthlings into subservience by kidnapping Santa and bringing him to the planet Varbos. Can Santa’s friends rescue him and save the world? Our hero, Captain Dick Daring, leads an expedition of would-be heroes and heroines into outer space to find Santa and bring him home in time for Christmas. Come out and boo at the bad guys and cheer the good ones; in other words, come out and cheer Ben on! Santa in Space will be staged Dec. 14 to Jan. 5.
