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.

The cast is a proverbial super-group of stand-up, sketch and improv comedians: Lisa Gilroy (YTV’s Th
e Zone, The Beaverton), Mark Little (Mr. D., CONAN), Natalie Metcalfe (The Sketchersons, O Dat Dum), Christian Smith (The Second City HouseCo, Soul Decision), and Kevin Vidal (Workin’ Moms, Come From Away 2018).

Created by the company, The Adventures of Tom Shadow will be directed by Peter Stevens of award-winning sketch troupe Elephant Empire, with sound design and stage management by Seann Murray of Just For Laughs Best Comedy Award-winners Sex T-Rex, lighting design by Meg Maguire of Second City and musical direction and accompaniment by 2016 Dora nominee Jordan Armstrong of comedy duo Death Ray Cabaret.

Adventures of Tom Shadow was imaginative, cinematic and very funny.”@GlennSumi (Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine)

“This was a gr8 show. Not many companies in #Toronto do comedic plays (outside of #FringeTO), & the cast is A+.”@GracingTheStage (Steve Fisher, Torontoist)
