Ross Petty Presents THE LITTLE, 11/22-1/4
Over 18 years, Ross Petty has created one of the longest-standing theatrical traditions in Ontario with his annual holiday pantomime, a truly unique creation that brings Canadian stars together on stage for a remarkable run of theatrical fun. Marking his 18th consecutive production at the Elgin Theatre, Ross Petty Productions has Toronto awash with excitement to catch THE LITTLE MERMAID live on stage from November 22, 2013 - January 4, 2014, a must-sea this holiday season!
Leaving behind The Brothers Grimm to enter Hans Christian Andersen territory, Petty and his team mark their first-ever foray into the fishy fairy tale, and in true Petty fashion, anyFIN goes!
Currently starring as the title role in Evangeline at The Charlottetown Festival, and most recently seen on Broadway as Mary Magdalene in the Stratford-to-Broadway production of Jesus Christ Superstar, musical theatre power house Chilina Kennedy will star as the Little Mermaid. With an aquatic collection of friends by her side, the title character's quest for true love and happiness is aided by Dan Chameroy's sea-lacious Dame Plumbum, returning to the Elgin stage with his perennial persona as the Little Mermaid's aunt. Starring opposite Kennedy as the handsome Prince, and the buoy of her dreams, is actor and Canadian Idol season one finalist, Marc Devigne.
Second City funnyman Reid Janisse, whose wit, charm, and delivery commanded the room in last year's production of Snow White, returns to star in this year's show while also penning the O-FISH-AL script. Petty himself is trading in his spanks for scales to play Ogopogo the evil sea wizard, based on Canada's own cryptid lake monster. Radiant redhead JorDan Clark, winner of So You Think You Can Dance Canadaseason four, and star of Family Channel's The Next Step TV series, will make her panto debut as Ogopogo's slithery assistant, while fan-favourite Eddie Glen returns as Petty's reluctant sidekick.
Shorely, Ross Petty's interpretation of Canada's mythical lake creature will bring a tsunami of boos and hisses at this year's family-friendly fractured holiday entertainment!
