Upcoming events

 

Shakespeare in Action is putting on “Sound and Fury”—their version of Macbeth, but with a twist. I’m so in.

 

“With the same sword they knight you
they gon’ good night you…
that ain’t even half what they might do”
– Jay Z

Music, dance, and spoken word collide in this sharp, bold, and accessible world-premiere of Shakespeare’s most haunting play, MACBETH.  Inspired by the sounds and poetry of 90s era hip hop music and performed by five diverse and dynamic actors, SOUND AND FURY is Marcel Stewart’s smart and imaginative adaptation that bursts with rhythms and lyrics, putting a contemporary spin on this classic story of bloody ambition.

The public performances will be  on Fridays and Saturdays from November 15th to December 7th at 8:00pm

Tickets are available here.


Frontlines is hosting “Roots and STEM” on Friday, November 22. It’s

a program for youth ages 13-17 where they are able to explore the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, while exploring their cultural roots through Black History


 

Upcoming events

This Wednesday will be a super exciting day: the all-candidates debate. It will be held at Weston CI starting at 7. Be there and be square!


On Sunday, October 20, St Philip’s Anglican Church will be hosting a Jazz Vespers. It sounds great.


On November 29, the Diaz-Greco family will be hosting a fundraiser for infantile spasm research. Emma, their daughter, is a “miracle baby” and their inspiration.

Sine the last fundraiser, Emma was the first Canadian recipient of a kind of neurological pacemaker that stimulates her vagus nerve to prevent and treat seizures.

Run for the United Way

Supercoffee is hosting a fun run for the United Way this weekend. Lace up and go!

The run will start at 9 am on Sunday, October 6 at the Caplan’s parking lot. There’s a $20 donation to join in, and supercoffee will be donating snacks and coffee, god bless their souls. Your correspondent will not be there, because it is his birthday (among other reasons, including but not limited to the running and waking up parts).
