Keystone Theatre is a group of dynamic and gifted physical theatre actors who have come together in their love for the likes of Keaton & Chaplin, to create a new play in the style of a classic silent film comedy. To aid in the development of this new and innovative piece, they are hosting a major fundraising event on Thursday, November 13th at The Bloor Cinema: Ainâ€™t We Got Fun! An Evening of Vaudevillian Shenanigans!
The entertainment line-up for this event will include classic vaudeville-inspired turns by some of Torontoâ€™s most talented performers: Magician and Mentalist Chris Mysterion, The Rumoli Brothers, Funny Man Christian Potenza, Comic Duos Parker & Seville, and Ben Clost & Jamie Spilchuk, Champion Tap Dancer Stephanie Cadman, and Tony Award winner Brent Carver.
Director Richard Beaune, Dramaturg Jordan Hall and the Keystone Theatre ensemble: Ginette Mohr, Dana Fradkin, Phil Rickaby, Adam Bradley, Scott McCulloch, Ted Neal, Dylan Juckes, Siobhan Richardson and David Atkinson, will bring the spirit and comedy of silent film to life on stage as they offer a sneak peek into the world of their play.
The capper to this fabulous vaudevillian evening is the screening of two classic silent films, Keatonâ€™s Cops and Chaplinâ€™s The Tramp, with live musical accompaniment by Keystoneâ€™s own piano-man David Atkinson.
There will be door prizes, a silent auction and even a cash bar. It will be a stellar night!
Tickets are $15 in advance â€“ buy on-line at www.keystonetheatre.net or $20 at the door.
Doors open at 7:30pm. The Bloor Cinema – 506 Bloor Street West, Toronto.
