Spent the evening at a cocktail reception for the Toronto Arts Foundation Awards finalists – I nominated one of my favourite companies, Expect Theatre and am so pleased they’re in the final round.
Saw this article on Blog TO the other day and I am extremely impressed – GREAT concept for a hospital fundraiser!
Speaking of fundraisers, all of you who swore up and down you would be attending the Fringe Festival fundraiser – it’s NEXT WEEK! In ten days people will be savouring a delicious tasting menu courtesy Fidel Gastro AND learning about what they’re eating, AND drinking sexy one of a kind vodka based cocktails, AND eating cupcakes AND bidding on cool auction prizes AND dancing to DJ Ricky. And if you buy a ticket, you too can be one of those well fed, well informed, well libated prize winning dancing fools. And if not – well….
Dumbwaiter (four Dora noms yesterday!) has added two shows to their run, so visit their website for details.
And Sister Mary’s a Dyke?! is moving and grooving along and has some amazing ticket deals – take a wander to the Cahoots site for more info and then take a wander over to Aki Stuido to see what all the fuss is about!

The OAC has started doing program podcasts, which is VERY cool – they offer additional info on various OAC programs, interviewing the grants officers etc. I like this for many reasons. Here’s the link to Theatre Programs, and here’s the link to Compass. Go have a listen, they both feature Pat Bradley who is awesome and gives good podcast.
Saw The Arsonists last night – loved it. Despite knowing in advance that it had gotten great reviews, and others were loving it I did NOT know there was so much music AND a band. Things that make me happy…oh, and the set was GORGEOUS. Off you go to see it, it was really full last night. I’m gonna go read my program again.
Cahoots is having a fundraiser tomorrow night, which sounds excellent. Please join us on Friday, November 30th for an exciting night of fun and games with the Cahooters. From 6pm – 11pm we will be converting the Cahoots Studio Space to a cozy hangout with chili, drinks, snacks and a large selection of boardgames to come enjoy with your friends!
Tickets are $30 (for which you will received a $20 charitable tax receipt) and space is extremely limited so please RSVP to Justine by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Cahootsalicious tradition we ask that you bring your own unique bowl for chili and to show off to your friends. We hope to see you there. Bring your game face!
