SCTV Is On The Stage

Attention residents of the tri-city area: much of the cast of SCTV is reuniting for a single live performance in Toronto on Monday, May 5 at 8 p.m. The occasion is a benefit for the Alumni Fund for Second City cast and crew facing financial or health difficulties.
It’s bound to be difficult for the talented troupe—Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, and Dave Thomas will all be there—to live up to 30-year-old memories, especially without the glue of the late John Candy to hold it all together, but we’re confident that talent and nostalgia will carry the day. Also appearing will be series regulars Robin Duke and Jayne Eastwood and Second City stage alumni Kathryn Greenwood, Teresa Pavlinek, Debra McGrath (all currently with Women Fully Clothed), and Colin Mochrie. No word yet on whether the Juul Haalmeyer Dancers will be making an appearance on the crowded stage.
Tickets are a bit steep, but still cheaper than going to a Leafs game or buying all of the DVDs: $250 for the show alone or $500 for the show and reception with the cast. If you select the latter option, you’ll be able to tell the cast in person how funny you thought they were a quarter of a century ago. It’s all for a good cause, and you’re almost guaranteed that the money won’t be used to line Guy Caballero’s pockets. Tickets are available online or through the Second City box office at 416-343-0011.
