ROSS PETTY PRODUCTIONS BREAKS FROM TRADITION…WITH TRADITION!
We’re delighted to announce that for our 22nd annual Holiday Musical at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre, we’re presenting the world premiere of a brand new title….A CHRISTMAS CAROL, The Family Musical with a SCROOGE LOOSE!
Everyone’s favorite curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge discards his Humbug credo and pushes his big plan to own the holiday season. “I MUST HAVE THE HOLIDAYS! I MUST HAVE THEM!! I MUST!!!”
Scrooge, Cratchit, Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future are joined by newly minted lovebirds Jane and Jack the Wrapper (yep…that’s the correct spelling), a girl group, and a gang of Ghostdusters on Christmas Eve, 1850’s London (Ontario). Will Scrooge succumb to the true meaning of Christmas? With a show full of songs, dances, jokes, topical references and ad libs, Mr. Scrooge may indeed be won over to the bright side.
With visions of Pantos dancing in his head, Charles Dickens will be rolling in his grave…with laughter. As the master storyteller once said, “There’s nothing so irresistibly contagious as laughter, good humour….and audience participation.” (Well, he didn’t actually say the last part).
