After 25 years at the Elgin Theatre — and 27 years of performances (when you count two years online) — Ross Petty is mounting his farewell pantomime performance this holiday season. He talks about this year’s show — Peter’s Final Flight — and why his productions resonated across many generations. He also chats about the legacy he’s leaving, the many young performers he’s worked with over the years and why he’s reprising his role as Captain Hook one final time.

At the 18:30 mark, RBC Royal Trust’s Tom Grozinger joins the show to talk about estate planning for pets. In 2020, Canadians owned 8.1 million cats and 7.7 million dogs — but only 7 percent of pet owners admit to having a plan for their pets in the case of death or illness. Grozinger talks about why guardianship and proper care of pets shouldn’t be overlooked and walks listeners through the options available for including pets in their estate plans.
