Let it be understood, I only endorse this a piece of local theatre and not as a political endorsement. Stephen Harper: The Musical is returning to Guelph next week in a one week only performance meant as a fundraiser for local NDP candidate Andrew Seagram.
Stephen Harper: The Musical can bee seen on stage at Silence, 48 Essex St., on June 2, 3 and 4 at 8 pm. The one-man show is written and performed by singer/songwriter/Ward 2 city councillor James Gordon, who himself has a past as an NDP candidate provincially, as you may remember.
"With 19 original songs, videos, audience participation and a kinda creepy Harper Dummy, this show offers insights into how we can 'Survive and Thrive in the Dying Days of the Empire Of Oil'. This is not exactly a tribute show.
With humour and pathos, Canadian Songwriter/playwright James Gordon lays out for us how this country has changed under the Harper Regime, and offers suggestions about how we can preserve the Canada that's being eroded by policies designed to please our largest corporations, not our must vulnerable citizens or our environment."
Tickets are just $25 or pay-what-you-can (PWYC). Ticket information can be found here.
