If you want a local Leslieville experience, reserve your ticket now for the pantomine presented at the Red Sandcastle Theatre: A deal at $50 for a family of 4!
I saw their pantomime last year and it was totally wacky, colourful and fun. A friend saw it this year and said it's equally fun with lots of dance, mime, and interaction with the crowd. Probably better for kids 8 years and older and fun for adults as well.
The cool theatre is very tiny (which adds to the funky experience). It faces Mercury (a great coffee shop) and is next to Ed's Real Scoop (best gelato & ice cream, and hot chocolates). You can bring your drinks inside the theatre.
