Dear Staircase Supporters,
Dear Staircase Supporters,
We need your help to convince the Committee of Adjustments that The Staircase is worthy of being forgiven a few parking spaces so that we can continue to operate as usual.
We need to increase the occupancy in The Staircase building, and there is not enough on site parking (according to the city).
How To Help.
Please send an email/letter. Pertinent information is at variance.staircase.org. This is a time sensitive topic as the Committee of Adjustments will hear our case on June 4th. Please spread the word and send everyone you know to variance.staircase.org

THE EMERGENCY MONOLOGUES
Morgan Jones Phillips returns to regale us with more tales from The Emergency Monologues. Part stand-up and part storytelling, The Emergency Monologues is about being a paramedic in Toronto. The show became a surprise hit when it first came out. During the 2008 SummerWorks Theatre Festival, it won the NOW Audience Choice Award and was sold-out for most of the run. Since then it has been performed at various bars, street corners and people’s homes with equal success. It was also a great success at the 2009 Toronto Fringe Festival.

Francophone band Amélie et Les Singes Bleus makes the kind of music that has made a bride and groom leave their own wedding reception to come next door and dance! They have established themselves as a true crowd-pleaser in the Toronto Music scene. Their music, tinted with festive energy and unique arrangements, captivates and takes us back to a 1920’s speakeasy.
We encourage the audience to dress the part in the 1920s and join us and the band to step back in time to our vintage inspired speakeasy ambiance! The best costume wins a prize. Of course a password is required and will be revealed upon purchase of the tickets…
15 March at 7pm at the Staircase Café
Tickets: 20$ for non-members and 15$ for members.
Doors open at 6:30pm – Concert at 7pm

Meet Trent Severn. Not the waterway system in Southern Ontario, but Trent Severn – the Canadiana band whose songs are fueled by the folklore of Ontario; whose lyrics pay tribute to Canadian legends.
Trent Severn is a trio from Stratford, Ontario comprised of indie songster Emm Gryner, the multi-talented Dayna Manning and violin whiz/songbird Laura C. Bates. When listening to their self-titled 10-track debut album, the first infuence that comes to mind is Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. There is no lead singer in Trent Severn. There are no doubled tracks. There is a guitar or banjo (Manning), a bass and stomp box (Gryner), a fiddle, and a shaker here and there. You can hear the watermarks of greats like Spirit of The West, Simon and Garfunkel, Tom Petty, Joni Mitchell, Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. The sound of this band is CANADIANA based in Folk, Roots and Old Country.
