About the show
Off the Beaten Path is a surprisingly touching musical comedy that pays homage to all of the fantasy franchises that preceded it. From movies to video games, books to table top RPGs, this musical has something for everyone.
The story follows a band of misfit adventurers on their quest to thwart the rising evil in the land. Along the way, they must come to grips with who they are, and fighting their way through swordplay, magic and skullduggery, they must work together if they are to succeed vanquishing their foes!
Off the Beaten Path is sponsored in part by StoryBook Theatre, one of Canada’s largest theatres for young audiences.
