A group of George Brown College students is raising funds for MusiCounts, supporting future generations of musicians with a show made up of tunes from decades past. Take Back Tuesday aims to bring attendees down memory lane, and boasts covers of hits from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s played by the Beatlers, Fleetwood Mix, and Johnny & the X’s. More than just a concert, the evening also includes auctions, games, and tasty treats!
Great theatre comes and goes, and you either see it while it’s playing, or wait for a remount. The On Stage On Demand series is looking to change that by capturing past hit indie plays on film—and they’re opening up the performances for free to a live audience. The shows being performed and taped include past hits like Of Mice and Morro and Jasp (which is already fully reserved), Antoine Feval, and Supperfesta. Admission is free, but you’ll want to reserve your tickets before the shows hit capacity.
It’s April 1—a time when we can truly start hoping that spring will start springing! Even if it doesn’t, we suggest that you put your flowery daydreams onto canvas and stare at them longingly. Seriously, head over to Paintlounge and take part in its workshop on creating Monet’s Waterlilies. Supplies and instruction will be provided; you just need to bring your lust for learning. All classes, regardless of difficulty, are geared toward the most amateur of artists. Sign up, and give it a try.
Sparrowhawk Theatre knows that times are tough, which is why it’s presenting two one-act plays for the price of one! Directed by Steven Holmberg, Norm Foster’s My Narrator and The Death of Me promise to be honest, unique, and un-pretentious theatre experiences for both audience and cast. Prepare to get up close and personal with stars Penelope Corrin, Roger Doche, Laura Jabalee, Jorge Molina, and Chris O’Sullivan at this intimate venue.
If nobody was able to amuse you with a well-executed prank this April Fool’s Day, Steph Kaliner and Sara Hennessey can help. Their monthly cable access-themed show, Terrific Women, is bound to inspire a few giggles, especially since Andrew Johnston, Kathleen Phillips, and Evany Rosen are among their special guests.
