Hey kids! Busy times for this bloggergal last week, so happy to be slowing things down a bit this week. Wanted to shout out a few theatre events happening:
If you’re looking for some big, wacky, scary musical fun – check out Alexander Showcase Theatre’s production of Young Frankenstein – The Musical, playing now at the Al Green Theatre (Bloor/Spadina, Toronto), with its final shows this week April 18-21. Please note the early curtain time on weeknights. I’ll be going on Thursday – really looking forward to seeing this, especially as the cast includes two former Alumnae Theatre Lady Windermere’s Fan cast mates: Andrea Brown and Patrick Brown.
Speaking of wackiness, Alumnae Theatre Company’s run of The Killdeer continues on the Alumnae main stage (70 Berkeley St. – Berkeley/Adelaide St. E., Toronto). Performances are Wed – Sun until April 27, with a talkback following the matinée on April 21.
Wacky fun times continue at Red Sandcastle Theatre’s In Loo Of fundraiser, running April 17-20 (922 Queen St. East, Toronto) – proceeds go towards building a bathroom for the performers in the basement of the theatre. This will be a true open mic event – and anything can happen. Literally. Show starts at 8 p.m. – tickets $10 (or more if you can). If you can’t make it out, you can still make a donation – they’d sure appreciate it. Give Owner/Manager/AD Rosemary Doyle a shout: firstname.lastname@example.org And when you drop by the website, check out the schedule for the rest of April while you’re there.
