HOGTOWN: The Immersive Experience
Don't miss your chance to see last summer's smash hit HOGTOWN: THE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE with new stories and new adventures! The show Toronto Life and CBC called Must see! and received four stars (NNNN) and Critics' Choice from NOW Magazine.
Hogtown is an Immersive Theatrical Experience featuring over twenty performers, with new music and original choreography. It is unlike anything you have seen, heard or felt at the theatre until now.
Welcome to Campbell House, 1926.
Its the night before a critical mayoral election that will determine the future of the city. Although prohibition is still in full effect that's not stopping tonight's host, union boss Bob Delacourt, from opening the doors to the hottest gin joint in the city, featuring the White Hot Jazz Band (hint: its in the basement). Not exactly the place you'd expect to find the two front-runners but tonight both incumbent Thomas Foster and his chief rival Councilman Sam McBride will make an appearance.
Foster is planning to broker a secret deal with Delacourt, since the union boss is the one with real power in this town. Problem is, Delacourt and his membership are currently backing McBride in the race. So tonight? It's time to play lets make a deal to become the next mayor of Toronto. Speaking of deals: rumour has it that kingpin Chicago rum-runner Franco Vitale is headed to Hogtown this very night to secure a bootlegging foothold on the city. But that's just the beginning
Young flappers Toni and Lulu are crashing the party with dreams of becoming showgirls. Moonshiners Tanner and Jackson Busch are peddling their home-grown whiskey, thirsty for a sale. They're going to have to get past the Temperance Ladies, staging a desperate protest in the dying days of Prohibition, and they're not going down without a fight. Finally, Mayor Fosters daughter Maddy Foster sings in the White Hot Jazz Band but tonight shes got a secret that requires the assistance of Canada's first female doctor, Libby Prowse.
Add to the mix a house filled with power brokers and police, showgirls and gun molls, speakeasies and gambling dens and you have the world of our play. You choose the characters and story-lines you wish to follow and no two performances are ever alike! Everyone's got something at stake, a heart to break, or a deal to make. Let the party begin!
