This was a gr8 show. Not many companies in #Toronto do comedic plays (outside of #FringeTO), & the cast is A+.

The Adventures of Tom Shadow” is a 60-minute comedic, action packed, heart-wrenching play that follows the adventures of Tom Shadow as he travels through the mystical Cloud Kingdom. What begins as a typical children’s story is immediately derailed once real life comes flooding in to destroy the magic. Think Peter Pan meets Taken…but with music! The cast of “Tom Shadow” is full of popular comedians in Toronto, who have been performing to sold-out houses week after week for years.

The cast includes CBC’s Mr. D and CONAN's Mark Little, YTV Host and Second City’s HouseCo Lisa Gilroy, Second City’s HouseCo and CBC Kids’ CANAdoDAday writer Natalie Metcalfe, Toronto Sketchfest Best of Fest winner (Soul Decision) and Second City’s HouseCo Christian Smith and Workin’ Moms and Kim’s Convenience’s Kevin Vidal.

“The Adventures of Tom Shadow” is directed by award winning sketch comedian Peter Stevens of Elephant Empire with lights and sound JFL Best Comedy Award winner Seann Murray of Sex T-Rex.
