Theatre
VILLAGE PLAYERS THEATRE
Bloor West Village
Please join Mary in the lobby at 1:15 pm when the box office opens. The play starts at 2 pm and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis (Adults $24/Seniors $20, plus $5 levy). The play, Theft, is a comedy by British playwright, Eric Chappell and should be a good one! Caught in the act at a posh country home, a burglar takes invasion of privacy to a whole new, hilarious level. A tongue-in- cheek delight, packed with stinging one-liners. Location 2190E Bloor St W (downstairs on the north side) across the street from No Frills, just east of Runnymede subway. There is street parking on Bloor and side streets. A municipal Parking lot is located behind the theatre. Sunday matinees sell out very fast. Ten seats have been reserved for UKC so kindly contact Mary at mbjukc@gmail.com (preferred) or 905-507-0397 by latest Fri Sep 22. After the play, you are welcome to join us at the Bread and Roses Bakery Café a short walk away.
Sep 30 Sat 3:45 pm
Climax Jazz Band
CLIMAX JAZZ BAND THE LEASIDE PUB
Laird near Eglinton
Join Ed at The Leaside Pub, 190 Laird Drive, three blocks south of Eglinton (56 bus). Enjoy live jazz with good company and a wide selection of food and drinks. There’s no cover charge, just the UKC levy. In order for Ed to make reservations, please register by 6.00 pm on the Thursday before by calling 905-820-5145 or emailing edthurygill@sympatico.ca. It’s recommended that emails include a contact phone number in case of last-minute changes. The band doesn’t start until 4.00 but there’s some uncertainty about being able to make reservations so it’s best to be there by 3.45 in order to sit together. Being earlier is even better.
