RAVE: My interview with the great, Ross Petty!!
As you know, I’m a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan and I know so many of you are as well! That’s why when I partnered with Ross Petty Productions to giveaway a family four pack of tickets to see The Wizard of Oz – A Tot0-ly Twistered Family Musical, you were so excited!! The film is definitely a significant part of my childhood and I really can’t wait to see it LIVE this Monday (Dec 31st) at the Elgin Theatre!
Ross Petty has produced so many family favourite shows and this is a definite hit among the masses!!
Here’s my 5 question interview with the great, Ross Petty! Enjoy MOMS!!
1) How long have you been in the business for?
I’ve been in the business as an actor since graduating from the University of Manitoba. Spent time in London (West End), sang at the Lido Cabaret in Paris and 8 years in NYC. On Broadway, off Broadway, National Tours, created the role of Eddie Dorrance on ALL MY CHILDREN.
2) What’s your favourite family friendly show that you’ve produced and why?
They’re all my favourites….you can’t say which is your favourite child! Particularly like this year’s Wizard of Oz. We have a strong heroine in Dorothy who fights bullying, has a public conscience in fighting global warming. Of course all the great characters are there from the movie….but we always add strength to our female leads.
3) Why do you think your shows are perfectly suited for the whole family?
As much entertainment for the adults as it is for children. Many jokes fly over the kids’ heads and we include current pop songs of the day adding current choreography. For instance….we have a number that they dance the floss to.
4) Why should MOMS bring their families to see The Wizard of Oz?
Mainly as stated…..our heroine has a strong backbone and it’s a good lesson for young girls as well as young boys to see that girls should be treated with respect, starting at an early age.
5) What’s your dream show to produce?
My 24th Panto for 2019! We’re still deciding on a title.
You still have time to see The Wizard of Oz, A Toto-ly Twistered Family Musical! Tickets can be found HERE!
