Wow, you know Christmas isn’t far behind when you get the notification about the new Ross Petty show! We have a blast at these humerous shows that appeal to young and old – check out our thoughts on Snow White here. Here is this year’s announcement which came to us today!
Ross Petty Productions Proudly Presents the 19th Annual Holiday Extravaganza
CINDERELLA -THE GAGS TO RICHES FAMILY MUSICAL!
Presented by CIBC with Performances begin November 21 at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre
Get ready to have a ball with CINDERELLA, The Gags To Riches Family Musical, a shoe-in for this holiday season’s favourite treat! Ross Petty, creator of Toronto’s most celebrated theatrical holiday extravaganza, presents his 19th annual production of exquisitely silly entertainment for the young and the young at heart! Tickets are now on sale.
Danielle Wade, star of CBC’s Over the Rainbow and the Mirvish production of The Wizard of Oz, will kick off Dorothy’s red shoes and slide into Cinderella’s glass slippers to indulge in her passion for pumpkins! Jeff Lillico, one of Canada’s most versatile actors and a major player with the big three: Soulpepper, Stratford and Shaw; is making his debut with Ross Petty Productions as Cinderella’s handsome love interest, Max Charming.
Patty Sullivan, currently celebrating 20 years as a children’s entertainer on TV, including the last 11 years as the host of Kids’ CBC-TV, is returning to the stage for her second Petty Panto, this time showing off her dark side as one of Cinderella’s evil step-sisters. Cleopatra Williams, who has played Mary Delgado in Jersey Boys and appeared in We Will Rock You, will play Cinderella’s other punk step-sister.
Dan Chameroy’s iconic Plumbum will return for her 5th show as the most whacked out Fairy Godmother anyone could ever imagine. And Pumpkin-haired favourite Eddie Glen, a glutton for punster-ment, is returning for his 11th Petty production. Ross Petty, the Maestro of Mayhem, will appear as none other than Cinderella’s nasty stepmother, and to the chagrin of his cast-mates, will continue to pump(kin) out topical jokes, ad libs and cornball humour
Director Tracey Flye has been helming the Panto since 2009, and Second City’s Reid Janisse will serve as both writer and performer, after serving double-duty on last year’s The Little Mermaid, for this year’s jacked-up, fractured fairy tale, CINDERELLA, The Gags To Riches Family Musical.
