HOWL-O-WEEN Dance Party Fundraiser

It’s been a little while since we hosted our first impromptu Halloween gathering on Howland Avenue. For those of you who weren’t around during the heady days of 2015… let’s just say it was quite the evening. Fun was had, friendships were made, promises were broken and red wine was spilled on a stair runner.

Well this year we are levelling up with a huge “Howl-o-Ween” celebration at Toronto’s Avling Brewery in Leslieville. There will be awards for best costume, great raffle prizes, excellent discount Avling brew, and lots and lots of dancing.

When: Tuesday October 29th from 9pm ’til Late! 

Where: Avling Brewery, 1042 Queen Street East

Tickets: $10 at the door and proceeds will be going towards The Howland Company’s 2020 production of Casimir and Caroline at Crow’s Theatre.

Wear a costume if you have one. If not, we’ll have some options awaiting you at the door, if you dare to wear them! Otherwise, no costume is totally fine as well. Just come to dance the night away with us!

Let’s make Tuesday October 29, 2019 another one for the memory books. Hope to see you there!

Howland Company Workshops:

We’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic Toronto theatre professionals over the last few years. We explored actor/director Ker Well‘s powerful movement-based performance methods, Second City’s Katherine Ashby led us through a side-splitting day of actor’s improv, and we worked as script developer lab-rats with director and performance creator Philip McKee as well as with Toronto playwright Susanna Fournier.

Over the past few years, we have been joined by Holger Schott Syme: Chair – Department of English and Drama, at the University of Toronto Mississauga, working on an exciting new translation of Ödön von Horváth’s Casimir and Caroline which culminated in a staged workshop presentation last Fall at the University of Toronto’s Luella Massey Studio Theatre. We have since developed the script further with company member Paolo Santalucia and will be producing a full production in 2020. There was also a reading with The Howland Company of the new performance text in development by Fournier, take rimbaud. We workshopped the piece as part of our RBC Emerging Theatre Company Residency at Canadian Stage with a public showing.
