Ross Petty Christmas Carol panto gets two extra shows

Ross Petty Productions’ first stab at a holiday classic has yielded extra helpings for theatregoers.

A Christmas Carol, The Family Musical With a Scrooge Loose will be held over at the Elgin Theatre until Jan. 5 with two extra performances Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 5 at 2 p.m.

Not only that, audiences at those shows will be part of a TV broadcast in 2018 on CBC and the Family Channel.

Star theatre critic Carly Maga said the musical “is completely irreverent while sometimes veering into totally bonkers territory.”

It stars Stratford Festival stalwart Cyrus Lane as Scrooge, Kinky Boots standout AJ Bridel as Jane, an employee of Scrooge’s; plus panto regulars Dan Chameroy, Eddie Glen and Kyle Golemba; and another Kinky Boots alumnus, David Lopez, as Marley.
