“I’m not sure who laughed more….me, my 8 year old or grandma at A Christmas Carol. The beauty of the hilarity is that we were all laughing at different things, and sometimes just laughing at each other laughing!”

"Packed with pizzazz, showing off their smarts and oozing talent, charm and fun…..this charismatic band of players give a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable performance for kids and adults alike. Hurry up and make Ross Petty’s panto your yearly holiday tradition!"

- Julie Nesrallah/CBC Radio

"A Christmas Carol is for anyone who has long reveled in Ross Petty’s wildly warped Pantos, where the music comes from pop charts and where some of the most fun is generated by parody video “commercials” of the show’s sponsors. There’s more than a fair share of adult jokes that zip over the heads of the youngsters, who would rather boo or cheer or dance in their seats."

- Keith Garebian/Stage and Page

"One should expect good family entertainment, an opportunity for the youngsters to exercise their vocal cords with some booing, and some silly, guilt-free laughs for the adults. That’s what A Christmas Carol provides. Dan Chameroy as Plumbum tapped into a zany rant that brought forth streaming tears of laughter. It’s a goofy show. Audiences can Boo. The fourth wall is not only down, it’s kicked solidly to the curb!"

- Ron Johnson/Post City Magazine

"A Christmas Carol has a great script and fun choreography. I laughed over and over again. Great voices and a fun villain too. Reign on Plumbum! Go see A Christmas Carol!"

- Kurt Browning

"The show was fantastic! Full of good laughs, vocals were amazing, choreography was the best I've seen, especially the Thriller number! Also really great costume designs. I could not stop smiling throughout the entire show. My 8 year old son loved it! Since Sleeping Beauty last year, a Ross Petty production has now become a family tradition for us."

- Alisha Coroa

"What an entertaining show! Children and adults alike will have a fun time. Pay attention as the jokes and asides are flying at a fast rate. And laughter is so good for the soul. The singing and choreography are fantastic, as are the costumes and sets. You really must find time in your busy holiday schedule to see this show before its last show on December 31."

- Jeanne Craig

This was their first theatre experience and can't wait for their next...to the point where they want to come back to see your production again!!! Congrats on a job well done!!
