The House of The Dolls!
The Southwest's Most Beautiful, Talented and Humble Drag Theater Troupe
British Holiday Tradition Gets Makeover by The Dolls
“Cinderella: The E! True Hollywood Story”
is Drag Troupe’s First Christmas Panto Play!
(Albuquerque, N.M.) -- Each year Albuquerque awaits with great anticipation an original staged Christmas production from its beloved theatre troupe, The Dolls. “What’s it going be this year, have you heard?!” is a question often asked amongst fans – young and old – at brunches around the Burque post Balloon Fiesta. Well, hold onto your Santa hats ‘cause this year it's going to be ye ole fashioned Christmas pantomime!
For centuries, pantomimes have been performed all over England. They bear no resemblance to what Americans think of pantomime. In fact, British pantomime, or panto, is probably the noisiest, rowdiest, funniest sort of live theatre in the world…and it's for the whole family! Most pantos are performed during the holidays, storylines are (loosely) derived from classic fairy tales but very topical, involve heavy audience participation and feature drag performances. A perfect stocking stuffer platform for The Dolls!
So if you heard The Dolls were bringing you a traditional English Christmas treat this year and pictured all snow and Dickens, then you are in for a big blow. Across the pond, the holidays just wouldn't be the holidays without a panto, and this year The Dolls are bringing this old-but-new-to-you British invasion of stage style to Albuquerque’s audiences of all ages!
“Cinderella: The E! True Holiday Story” is a production that will have more live singing, dancing and jokes than you can shake a magic wand at! The all-new costumes and spectacles are Royal Ball-worthy and have to be seen to be believed!
So bundle up and bring the whole family to enjoy Christmas the Merry Ole England way!
