Leigha Lee Browne Theatre

Scarborough community housing takes centre stage

“Stop!” an audience member yells and the actor makes way for the spectator to come on stage and join the action.
This technique is called forum theatre, and it was used on Oct. 18 at Metro Hall (55 John St.) where six residents of the Kingston, Galloway and Orton Park (KGO) neighbourhoods performed their show, And Here We Dwell.

UTSC musicians welcome spring with jazz thunder

To many, April brings thoughts of warmer and sunnier days. But for some music-loving University of Toronto Scarborough students, their minds were on the sounds of sweet thunder. Sweet melodies and iconic jazz could be heard at UTSC’s Leigha Lee Browne Theatre on the weekend. The UTSC Jazz Orchestra and Vocomotive, an accapella group, showcased their talents at the annual year-end concert, Spring Awakening I.

Devised theatre piece a gem

Opening night is quickly approaching as University of Toronto theatre students rehearse for their original production of The Jewel in the Lotus.

The play is not your typical piece of theatre. With no plot, characters or story, the production gives the audience an opportunity to experience a type of show they wouldn’t normally be exposed to.
