The cast of 'A Christmas Story...of Murder,' which runs at Globus Theatre on November 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, and 25.

Globus Theatre has created another exciting murder mystery, A Christmas Story… of Murder, for the holiday season. With only two productions left of Globus Theatre’s 20th anniversary season, patrons won’t want to miss out on this festive performance – a Christmas classic, with a twist!

Theatregoers are invited to spend Christmas with the Parker family and it’s going to be quite the occasion. Mr. Parker has won a major award and the whole neighbourhood will gather to celebrate in all their finery – feather boas, fedoras and fishnets, of course. But when the neighbourhood bully threatens to gatecrash, and presents go missing from under the tree, party goers run amok and the ensuing chaos threatens to have someone’s eye out. Fun, comedy and mayhem are in this hilarious dinner theatre experience.

This comedic murder mystery dinner theatre stars some of Canada’s best improvisors and performers including Ashley Comeau (Second City, named ‘Best Female Improviser’ by NOW Magazine), Chris Gibbs (Just for Laughs, Not Quite Sherlock), Dave Pearce (SlapHappy, the Strombo Show, CBC), Connor Thompson (Lusty Mannequins, Second City, CBC) and Kerry Griffin (SlapHappy, Second City; Bad Dog Theatre Co.), alongside Globus Theatre’s Artistic Producer James Barrett.

“I have long been a fan of the movie, A Christmas Story, and this is a funny twist on the characters as grown ups,” explains writer and director James Barrett. “It will be a great time for people who have seen the movie or people who are new to the story. The night will put everyone in the Christmas spirit and be filled with good food, drink and laughter.”

This hilarious and interactive performance will be sure to entertain audiences of adults and older kids. With canapes and a delicious buffet style meal, turn detective and solve this festive mystery.

Perfect for Christmas parties with friends and family, patrons are encouraged to make sure to get tickets now before they’re sold out.

A Christmas Story…of Murder runs November 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25. Dinner and theatre cost $90. Doors open at 6:00 with canapes at 6:30 and the show starting at 7:00 p.m.
