Toronto Jewish Film Festival

A delightful rarely-screened musical comedy for kids, parents and grandparents of all ages. Inspired by Wayne’s grandchildren, and written by Wayne & Shuster, Once Upon a Giant is an affectionate send-up of Mother Goose, Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, filled with slapstick, verbal shtick and original songs by Wayne. Humphrey the Doctor (Shuster) and Lester the Jester (Wayne) outwit a giant that has taken over a royal kingdom, while the love between Princess Marigold (Gwendolyn Pacey) and Prince Daryl (Jeff Hyslop) is threatened by the evil Prince Malokeo (Tom Harvey). Johnny and Frank are backed up by a hilarious supporting cast that includes Carol Robinson, Jayne Eastwood, Jack Duffy and Don Cullen.

At this screening the theatre will have the lights turned up and the sound turned down, and children are welcome to get up and move around during the show
