Toronto, Ontario – Does it end with four horsemen? A bang? Or a whimper? Only time-travelling players from the future know, and they bring their bizarre and comedic cautionary tales of impending doom to contemporary Toronto in How Not to Die Stupidly. Running on April 19 and 20 in the courtyard of St. George the Martyr Anglican Church (197 John Street), this cabaret-style, site-specific production is the latest collaboration between Humber College’s Theatre Arts – Performance and Theatre Arts – Production programs.
How Not to Die Stupidly is created and directed by Tatiana Jennings in conjunction with the graduating Theatre Performance and Theatre Production students. It features choreography by Sharon Moore, vocal direction by Fides Krucker, and set and lighting design by Laird Macdonald. Costume design is by Sonja Rainey, and sound design is by John Mark Sherlock. Humber alumni Christopher Legacy and Matthew McMillan return to the college to act as assistant directors.
How Not to Die Stupidly runs at 8 pm on April 19 and at 6 and 8 pm on April 20. Attendees are asked to pay what they can, and to dress appropriately for the weather. Should there be inclement weather, the production will be moved to the Humber Studio Theatre (300 Birmingham Street).
