Paddington Bear and cast call in sick, cancel performance at Oakville Centre
Published February 2, 2023 at 10:41 am
Paddington Bear is feeling a little under the weather, so hitting the stage in Oakville will have to wait.
The popular kids show Paddington Gets in a Jam, which was scheduled for tonight (Feb. 2) at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts at 7 p.m., has been cancelled.
Paddington’s performance at the AEG Liebherr Auditorium is off after members of the cast tested positive for COVID-19.
The original slapstick comedy features Paddington going next door to borrow a cup of sugar from Mr. Curry and finds his neighbour in a panic because he’s expecting a visit from his Great Aunt Matilda.
Paddington volunteers to help Mr. Curry with his to-do list before her arrival. In typical Paddington fashion, his attempts to help repair pipes in the bathroom, vacuum floors, install new wallpaper and bake a cake don’t go to plan.
Instead, the pipes burst and flood the bathroom. The vacuum misbehaves and leaves dust everywhere and he adds too much self-rising flour to the cake.
As if that’s not enough, his efforts at wallpapering turn into a sticky chaos.
The audience will have to watch the show to find out if Paddington can fix everything before Great Aunt Matilda arrives.
The character from British-born writer Michael Bond has entertained kids and families across the world for over 60 years.
Paddington Gets in a Jam debuted in New York City in 2019.
The Oakville Centre has yet to announce any further dates or whether the event will be rescheduled.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
