Ross Petty Productions to Stage THE LITTLE MERMAID at the Elgin, Nov 22-Jan 4
For nearly over 20 years, generations of families have flocked to the Elgin Theatre for Ross Petty Productions' annual holiday pantomimes, one of the longest-standing theatrical traditions in Ontario. With their 18th consecutive fractured fairy tale ahead of them, 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.
The centuries-old tradition of British pantomime is a boisterously fun form of musical comedy for the entire family and this year, Ross Petty and his creative team are exploring the underwater world of Hans Christian Andersen in a story where anyFIN goes!
This year's leading lady is musical theatre powerhouse, Chilina Kennedy. With the help of a motley crew of aquatic friends, the title character's love-riddled quest to save the Toronto harbour is also aided by Dan Chameroy's sea-lacious Dame Plumbum, and Marc Devigne, Canadian Idol season one finalist, starring opposite Kennedy as the buoy of her dreams
Second City funnyman Reid Janisse, who made his panto debut last year as Ham (the porcine Don Cherry), returns as Carl the Clown Fish while also penning the O-FISH-AL script. Petty himself is trading in his spanks for scales to play Ogopogo the evil sea wizard, radiant redhead JorDan Clark, winner of So You Think You Can Dance Canada season 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!
