Details: Rich or poor, the whole family will be hood-winked by Ross Petty Productions’ original musical, Lil’ Red Robin Hood this holiday season. After 23 years of holiday cheer in Toronto’s historic Elgin Theatre, Ross Petty Productions’ 2019/20 Family Musical is moving to the Winter Garden Theatre on the 6th Floor of the same venue. The Winter Garden has a uniquely magical forest setting that inspired the creation of our brand-new 24th production.
This original family musical stars Robert Markus, AJ Bridel, Eddie Glen, Michael De Rose, Sara-Jeanne Hosie, Lawrence Libor, and Daniel Williston. Tracey Flye will once again bring her many talents to direct and choreograph the production and Matt Murray will create his 3rd hilarious script. Joseph Tritt is the music director and conductor of Lil’ Red’s rockin’ live band. With pop tunes, ad libs and raucous audience participation, this musical production is a uniquely Toronto family tradition, and not to be missed.
The adventure begins in 2019 Toronto where the hero, Lil’ Red is magically transported to the 16th century and lands in Sherway Gardens Forest. Robin Hood, played by Lawrence Libor, Maid Marion, and Friar Tuck, played by Daniel Williston (Rose, Spoon River, and Kinky Boots), join Lil’ Red in defeating the evil Sheriff of Naughtyham, played by Sara-Jeanne Hosie who was a hit as last year’s Wicked Witch of the West. Also returning from last year’s The Wizard of Oz is Michael De Rose, raucous and strangely alluring in the role of SugarBum.
