Cannibal! The Musical is on stage now in Toronto and we talked to director, Christopher Bond and actor Mike “Nug” Narghang!
The musical follows five miners from Utah who embark on a treacherous journey to stake their claim on land in the Colorado Territory. Led by their reluctant guide, Alferd Packer, the group encounters trappers, natives and a whole lot of tom-foolery before losing their way in the Rocky Mountains. When they’re found days later Alferd is the only one left standing, and the Sheriff arrests him for cannibalism – but what really happened out on them there mountains? Intrepid reporter Polly Pry is determined to tell the REAL story… that is, if she doesn’t fall in love with the unsuspecting Packer first.
Cannibal! The Musical is by Trey Parker the co-creator of South Park and The Book of Mormon, and this brand new stage version (and Canadian premiere – on stage in Feb. 2014) is being adapted by some of the Canadian creative team behind Evil Dead – The Musical and directed by Christopher Bond. Tickets are now on sale, and we recently announced some great casting: theatre stars Elicia MacKenzie (winner of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?) and Liam Tobin, along with a slew of Toronto’s top comedic actors and Second City alum including Mike Nug Narghang, Marty Adams and Mark Andrada.
DATES: February 10 – March 8, 2015
