Shows! Shows! Shows! During The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year At Globus Theatre

KAWARTHA LAKES-Globus Theatre at the Lakeview Arts Barn is concluding their fall season with three terrific shows

A festive murder mystery, a comedy improv show, and their crowd-pleasing annual panto – all sure to bring joy and festive holiday spirit! 

First up is Ho Ho Ho Nooooo! A Festive Murder Mystery, a night of murder and merriment on from November 18th to 26th

Santa is having a bad week. The cost of feed for the reindeer has skyrocketed; he’s facing a labour shortage (the Christmas Elf Recovery Benefit isn’t helping) and if “Red Nose” isn’t taken off the Hovid-19 symptom checklist soon then Christmas is doomed! To make matters worse it looks like someone is set to sabotage Santa entirely…and make the run up to Christmas pure murder! 

In this hilarious festive offering, audiences will enjoy a delicious meal in a festive setting and turn detective as they try to discover which of the characters has Santa saying “Ho, Ho, Ho Noooooo!” This fun-filled night of intrigue stars Canadian Comedy Award Winners Chris Gibbs, Kerry Griffin and Dave Pearce and audience favourites Jennine ProfetaJames Barrett – as Santa, and Rebecca Anne Bloom.

On December 3rd for one night only, the all-female, all funny stand-up and improv comedy ensemble Girls Nite Out take the stage. Featuring CBC darlings and Canadian Comedy Award Winners Elvira Kurt, Karen Parker, Diane Francis and Jennine Profeta, Girls Nite Out originated at Globus Theatre 14 years ago and has since toured across Canada to great acclaim. Grab your girlfriends and come for dinner, drinks and a giggle at this troupe’s lucky 13th show at Globus!

The final bookend to this delightful month of shows is Mother Goose: A Panto of Pure GoldFeaturing James Barrett as Dame Gertie Goose and two casts of children from the community performing alongside professional actors, Globus Theatre is especially excited to be bringing this annual show back!  Show options include either a full Christmas Dinner and Show or a delectable Dessert and Show

Artistic Director, Sarah Quick says, “November and December at Globus Theatre has always meant hustle and bustle; the smell of delicious food wafting through a building filled with laughter and anticipation…and finding glitter and feathers in various places about your person! After a quiet year last year, we needed to get that feeling back. We can’t wait to host office Christmas parties; friends’ celebrations and the annual trip to the panto which is part of so many families’ traditions
