 Find your new delight in PA Panto’s 2024 production of “Ethel Mermaid & the Varying Degrees of Evil.”

New to Panto? Here are some fun tidbits:

Shout outs – who/what/when/where/why/how

*Cheering/booing/hissing – In panto, there are “goodies” and “baddies”. Cheer the heroes when they do something good. Boo and hiss the baddies when they do bad things. These reactions were common in Shakespearean theatre and are now an expected part of British pantos.

*“Oh no it isn’t, oh yes it is” – A routine chant used when an actor says either “oh no it isn’t” or “oh yes it is” and the audience is encouraged to shout the opposite. The shout is normally repeated three times, lead by the actor.

*“It’s right behind you!” – When an actor is looking for something, or a villain is creeping up on a hero, and the audience can clearly see whatever it is behind them. A crowd favorite, every time.

We’ll have other moments of interactions with the audience. Show up ready for anything. We’ll keep surprising you, in the good way!

Glenn Miller Orchestra

Music In The Schools Month

TUESDAY, MARCH 19, 2024 @ 7PM

at the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center

PAHS Jazz band joins The legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra for our 2nd annual Music in the Schools Month. 

The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all dance bandleaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930’s and 40’s. A matchless string of hit records, the constant impact of radio broadcasts and the drawing power at theatres, hotels and dance pavilion, built and sustained the momentum of popularity. Glenn disbanded his musical organization in 1942 at the height of its popularity to volunteer for the Army. There, he organized and led the famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. It went to Europe to entertain servicemen performing numerous live and radio shows.

Today, the 18 member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries. Additionally, it also plays some more modern selections arranged and performed in the Miller style and sound. Just as it was in Glenn’s day, the Glenn Miller Orchestra today is still the most sought after big band in the world.

iLuminate has been a household name since they were called “The BEST NEW ACT in America!” during their run on America’s Got Talent in 2011.

iLuminate is a company based on the fusion of technology and dance. This distinct intermix will reawaken your senses and imagination! With a diverse team of experts and artists, together they create a visual experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Audiences will see dancers in electrified glow-in-the-dark suits performing dynamic routines and illusions on a darkened stage. It’s a show that’s completely unique to the iLuminate brand and incomparable to any other dance performance.

iLuminate is the brainchild of Miral Kotb, a woman whose true passions in life are dance and software engineering, which is why you’ll see her both manning the keyboard and dancing on stage in iLuminate’s archive of video performances (which you can absolutely check out – at the link below!).

CELTIC MUSIC WITH A REFRESHING NEW ATTITUDE

A storming new quartet, blending the drive of Irish traditional music and bluegrass along with the heart and the soul of Folk & Appalachian music.

Gadan is a new project created by four experienced musicians of Irish trad and European folk/rock scene. Their highenergy repertoire has a powerful live appeal and a sound comparable to newtrad acts such as Talisk, and WeBanjo3, but with a unique identity thanks to years of experience in folk scenes, from Appalachian & Old Time to English folk and Irish traditional music. Their lineup consists of two banjos  tenor & clawhammer  fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar creating an “stringsonly” sound with a hint of electronics, driven by a powerful rhythmic pulse.

Gadan’s performances build energy, taking audience to ecstasy with their wide spectrum of refreshing yet traditional sound leaving no one unmoved.

John King

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2023 @ 7PM

at the Masonic Temple

Read More

Raised in the Appalachian foothills of northern Georgia, John, has been writing lyrics into his spiral-bound notebook and strumming them on an acoustic guitar since he was a kid. By 16 years old, he was writing multiple songs every week, often auditioning them for his friends around the campfire.

His steady climb toward the top of the country music charts, include a number 1 songwriter, penning Randy Houser’s chart-topping “We Went” earning him a 2016 ASCAP Songwriter Award as well as Hootie and The Blowfish’s “Rollin” (the band’s first song to be released since 2005). John plays an average of 150 shows annually while building his audience one gig at a time. Most importantly, King has begun telling his own story through music, launching his solo career with “Tonight Tonight” — a Top 40 hit whose anthemic chorus was heard everywhere from country radio to the weekly NFL recaps on CBS — and releasing his first full-length album with 2021’s Always Gonna Be You.

 Call it a soundtrack to self-discovery. Call it a coming-of-age story, performed by a southern son whose country twang is matched by his pop hooks. Whatever the description, Always Gonna Be You is proof there’s a new King in town.
