Details: Holiday hilarity will ensue as this timeless tale is fractured to Ross Petty specifications. Christmas Eve, 1850s London (Ontario) and Scrooge has discarded his humbug credo for some new big plans to own the holiday season. “I MUST HAVE THE HOLIDAYS! I MUST HAVE THEM!! I MUST!!!” Cratchit, Marley and all the Ghosts of Christmas are joined by newly minted lovebirds Jane and Jack, a girl group, and a gang of Ghostdusters to teach Scrooge the real meaning of Christmas. With hit songs, high-energy dancing, silly jokes, up-to-the-minute topical references, and hilarious ad-libs, Mr. Scrooge may indeed be won over to the bright side.
Cyrus Lane will make his Petty Panto debut as everyone’s favourite Christmas curmudgeon, Ebenezer Scrooge. Also, starring AJ Bridel, Dan “Plumbum” Chameroy, Eddie Glen, Kyle Golemba and David Lopez.
