Our Shakespeare is wowing houses
Don't miss this audience favourite, closing this Saturday, November 19 at 8 pm.

Much Ado "I was moved both to tears and to hysterical giggles by this performance. Well done!" - Audience Survey Response

"...a terrific time in the theatre. Don't you dare miss this." - The Slotkin Letter

"Carly Chamberlain... blown away yet again by her directorial skills and ingenious knack for bringing texts to life in clever, thought-provoking ways.... Across the board, I was impressed by the cast... this was a tightly woven ensemble, and each actor felt distinguished and significant to the production." - Mooney on Theatre

Much Ado "Excellent production, actors were outstanding, set design appropriate and choreography good...I laughed and so did my young children. Great show. Loved it!" -  Audience Survey Response

"Everything about this production was immaculate: the direction, acting, choreography, set, costumes, and props were carefully selected and rehearsed." - The Medium

CARRIE: the musical is cast
Meet some of the faces of this thriller
We are pleased to announce the casting of our 2016/2017 musical selection, Carrie: the musical, directed by Richard Ouzounian. This production is a standout for the theatre, not just for its cult-classic following of the novel and movie, but also because every cast member will be making their debut performance on our stage. In the coming weeks, we'll learn more about these cast members and the rest of the ensemble (20 actors in all!) but for now, here are a few of the emergent talents that we will be pleased to showcase in January.

CARRIE - cast
L to R, top to bottom: Tiyana Scott as Carrie White, Brittany Miranda as Margaret White, Jacqueline Godbout as Sue Snell, Jordan Kenny as Tommy Ross, Madison Sekulin as Chris Hargensen, Stephane Gaudet as Billy Nolan, Emma Robson as Miss Gardner and Bevan Buhler as Mr. Stevens and Reverend Bliss.

Where: Debates Room, Hart House
Cost: Free / Registration required, more here >>

Join us a for a special presentation of From Their Lips, a work-in-progress play based on Intergeneracial, a black youth oral history theatre project. It was founded by Fiona Raye Clarke in 2015 and is currently in its second year. The project involves youth meeting weekly, interviewing Black elders and fellow Black youth in the community asking them the same set of questions, and using their words and stories to create the theatrical piece entitled, From Their Lips.
 
Following the performance, the Hart House Social Justice Committee and Hart House Senior Members Committee will host a moderated talk back session with the performers, director and playwright. The talk will explore a dialogue in relation to the issues of race raised through the project, followed by refreshments and further informal discussion with the cast.
