THE WONDER PAGEANT, this year’s Coal Mine commission, is an unscripted evening of improv comedy, merry music and holiday miracles co-created by Kayla Lorette (That’s So Weird!) and Ron Pederson (MAD TV), and performed by their favourite improv superstars! Ugly sweaters, holiday melodies, family memories and improv games = a new hilarious world premiere every night. THE WONDER PAGEANT is perfect for a night out with friends, for family outings, for office holiday parties and for figuring out what the holidays really mean in 2018 Toronto.

THE WONDER PAGEANT’s cast of Canadian Comedy Award-Winners include Matt Baram, Jan Carauna, Kayla Lorette, Paloma Nunez, Ron Pederson, and Kris Siddiqi with musical director Waylen Miki and stage manager Connor Low.
