Director Andrew Shaver, Artistic Director of SideMart Theatrical Grocery (Haunted Hillbilly, Scientific Americans, Trad, Gordon) once again brings his award-winning theatre company's trademark vitality and humour to this new Segal Centre production. The rising director invited acclaimed Toronto singer-songwriters Justin Rutledge and Matthew Barber to join the cast and to perform original music live on the Segal stage, inspired by the film's seminal Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack. The result? A fresh take on a 20th century classic. Join the creative trio in an intimate discussion on the theatrical and musical legacy of The Graduate, 50 years later!
"Barber's impeccable songcraft and bittersweet passion make you sit up and take notice." – Toronto Sun
