New and classic sketches will be performed at the Danforth Music Hall April 23-26 by Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson. There's no note in the press release advising your to dress as your favourite old school character from the CBC show... but there's no warning not to.
A notable exception to this is the Untapped Emerging Artists section, which is a smaller juried competition that features some of the fair's best work. The massive fair can make you feel like you're lost in an Ikea marketplace, but if you wade through the high heeled traffic, there's lots to engage with here.
These are my picks for 5 artists not to miss at this year's Artist Project.
This means Toronto admirers and collectors of artful stage costumes and theatre production knick knacks are in luck: this Sunday, February 22, the Distillery District will be a hot spot to pick up 35 years worth of costumes, wigs, props, furnishings, and books - plus sheet music, for the musically inclined.
Toronto, it's not a dream. Richmond Hill photo studio Selfies is offering to "teach people how to take professional pictures on their own with a high quality DSLR camera, costumes, backgrounds and a variety of props." Just show up with your pals/extras and a USB stub - Selfies will take care of the rest.
While there's no household in Toronto that couldn't use more locally crafted, gleaming winged bric-a-brac, the fun here is obviously in the hunt itself. Millington's previously treasure hunts have taken place at York University, once in the book store (The winner found $100 cash and a golden ticket in a copy of Catcher in the Rye) and once featuring sculptures around campus.
