You’re all invited to celebrate Veronica Mendoza’s (Belinda Corpuz) 18th debutante birthday party! Edsel (Mickey Rodriguez) pursues his long time best friend Veronica, a Mississauga Filipino beauty queen, who shares a secret with her Scarborough boyfriend Jerome (Tony Ofori). The boys, JP and Noel (Richie Guzman and Jeff Yung) have been practising their two-step under the direction of choreographer Kate (Arlene Paculan) in this diverse coming of age story with a twist of 90s flare.
Written by spoken word poet Leonard Cervantes of FLIP TV (OMNI 2) and original music composed by Kierscey Rand, formerly the keyboardist for Down with Webster, and currently guitar player and background vocalist for Toronto artist K’Naan. Dora Nominated playwright Catherine Hernandez (Singkil, Future Folk & Eating with Lola) is at the helm making her directorial debut . Jodinand Aguillon of Kensington Market’s Pretty Freedom rounds out the creative team with the set & costume designs.
Shotgun Wedding was originally created through Carlos Bulosan Theatre’s Play Creation Unit and later went onto further development through fu-GEN Theatre Company’s Playwrights’ Kitchen.
Guests are welcome to wear their favourite clothes from the 1990s to celebrate the chaos that will ensue.
Girls dig up your darkest lipstick. Guys shine up your pointiest dress shoes.
This is our debut.
