Canadian sketch comedy stars coming to the Fergus Grand Theatre

FERGUS – The Fergus Grand Theatre’s 2022-23 presenting series kicks off on Sept. 23 with Middle Raged, a hilarious stage show starring Geri Hall and Gary Pearson that explores the time of life when you’re running out of time. 

Couples dealing with the madness of child rearing, empty nests, aging parents, financial stresses … and even trying ‘Outlander’ style role-play to spice up the bedroom.

“It’s time you had a great night out with that special someone,” says theatre coordinator Eric Goudie. 

“Leave the kids at home, come on out to the theatre, and have a few laughs.”

Hall is best known for five seasons as a regular on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, has also appeared in numerous feature films like Shall We Dance and Hairspray, and is a Gemini Award winner, and most recently in the Sy-fy series Astrid and Lily Save the World. 

Pearson is best known as a writer for such shows as MadTV, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Corner Gas, JFL All Access, and Sunnyside, which he co-created.

This show is the first of eight in the Fergus Grand Theatre’s “Better Together” Presenting series. 

Single tickets for all shows are now on sale, but this year the theatre is offering its most flexible subscription package ever – purchase tickets to any five or more “Better Together” shows before Sept. 1 and save $10 per ticket. 

Tickets are available at  the box office, by phone at 519-787-1981, or online at
