Legend Has it – Until Dec 31

This is a funny, heartwarming fantasy adventure for the whole family, complete with powerful spells, magic swords and comic sidekicks. Plus: there’s a twist! Every show, the actors pick someone in the audience, child or adult, to go on a quest to save the world. The hero gets to pick their own journey. The performers, some of Canada’s top improvisational talent, guide them on a hilarious and life-affirming trip to uncover the hero within.

The reviews are in and Legend Has It is a HIT! Be sure to check out their New Years Eve showing for a great way to ring in 2016!
