Music & comedy from 7 Strong & Friends, June 12-14

Well, the season is over at Alumnae Theatre Company, and the building will shortly be undergoing Phase II of a major renovation to make the front entrance accessible to people with disabilities. We’ve always had an accessible side entrance, and last summer’s Phase I reno added an accessible washroom and punched a door in the wall from the auditorium into the lower lobby.

Toronto-based band 7 Strong features Adam & Toby Orr, Angus Barlow, Garret Thomson, Peter Chapman, Stuart Constable, Carianne Hathaway.

But before the sledgehammers start swinging for Phase II, one last event: the band 7 Strong (formerly known as ATAG – aka Angus Barlow & The Orrs – see post about a gig in 2011: https://alumnaetheatre.wordpress.com/2011/03/29/angus-and-the-orrs-the-alumnae-studio/) host three evenings on Alumnae’s Main Stage in June. The first two (Thu June 12 and Fri June 13) will be musical: the band performs excellent covers of songs – some familiar and some not. The opening act is Kick Off The Covers; special guest on Day One (June 12) is Yves Saint-Cyr.

Wine, beer and snacks will be available. Tickets are $10 at the door; show starts at 7:30 pm. Proceeds go to Alumnae Theatre.

Can’t make it on Thursday? 7 Strong is also playing on Friday 13th ! Kick Off The Covers opens; special guests are Yves Saint-Cyr and acoustic/alternative singer Ileen (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ileen/62472003614) . 7:30 show. https://www.facebook.com/events/306586349495028/

And on Saturday June 14 at 8pm, 7 Strong presents an evening of improv comedy with Ted & Lisa.

On the fly, Ted Hallett and Lisa Merchant create a multi-character one-act improvised “disturbingly funny” play which they’re calling “Complications in Corktown”!   Special guest: Michael Graham.
