MAPLEWOOD, NJ — For the fifth straight year, Suburban Legend brings the perfect cure for the post-holiday blues with another uproarious play. “Gadzooks! A Very Arthurian Pantomime” opens at the Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, Jan. 6, at 7:30 p.m. and runs through Jan. 15. Once again Chrissy and Ridley McIntyre have penned an original British-style panto, this time offering a unique and hilarious take on the legend of King Arthur.
Performances will be Fridays, Jan. 6 and 13, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Jan. 7 and 14, at 7 p.m.; and Sundays, Jan. 8 and 15, at 2 p.m. The Burgdorff is located at 10 Durand Road in Maplewood.
This is Camelot as you’ve never seen it. In addition to the usual Arthurian suspects, such as Arthur and Merlin, Sir Lancelot and Guinevere, you’ll find a few new ones, such as Morganna and the Dark Knight, Katniss and Kale, Sir Loin and Sir Real. A cross between a fairy tale and a vaudevillian stage show, the panto is a British holiday tradition that offers fun for the whole family.

Suburban Legend Arts presents:
GADZOOKS! A Very Arthurian Pantomime
Don’t miss this fun, family-friendly, raucous romp through Dark Ages Britain, from Camelot to Fairyland and back again.
We find ourselves in ancient British realm of Albion during the Dark Ages long ago. Albion’s King Arthur is set to wed his betrothed, Princess Guinevere of Gwent, in two days and preparations in the castle of Camelot are well underway. With Gwent and Albion joined together, all of Britain would finally be at peace.
However, Arthur’s half-sister Morganna has other plans. She wants her son to sit on the throne of Albion, and is prepared to use all of her powers as well as the magic of Oona the Queen of the Fairies to get him there. Will she succeed in making Mordred the King? Who is the mysterious Dark Knight? Why should you never trust a fairy? All these questions and more will be answered in GADZOOKS! A Very Arthurian Pantomime.
