The Adventures of Tom Shadow

The Adventures of Tom Shadow


Written and performed by Toronto’s top comedians, The Adventures of Tom Shadow, is a hysterically-funny yet heart-wrenching musical that follows … well … the adventures of Tom Shadow, as he travels through the mystical and magical Cloud Kingdom! This irreverent tale, though full of magic and whimsy, is definitely not for kids. Think Peter Pan meets anyone messing with Liam Neeson’s kids.

Press Quotes (if you're into that kind of thing...)

That mix of silliness on the surface of darker emotional territory encapsulates the humour of the rest of the show, and of the skilled cast who created it...
— Carly Maga (3.5 out of 4 - Toronto Star)
The Adventures of Tom Shadow was imaginative, cinematic and very funny.
— Glenn Sumi (NOW Magazine)
This was a gr8 show. Not many companies in #Toronto do comedic plays (outside of #FringeTO), & the cast is A+.
— Steve Fisher (from Twitter, I guess)
I’ll also say that the cast is pretty damn flawless...The story doesn’t lag for a single moment, the music is charming and the cast is simply outrageous.
— Jennifer Enchin (Mooney on Theatre)
