 "The question isn’t, 'what are we going to do?' The question is, 'what aren’t we going to do?'”

Calling all John Hughes fans! Don’t stay home alone and stop singing in the shower. If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming the star of your own parade float, join the Segal Centre 13th Annual Musical Fundraiser, LIVE ON STAGE! Get ready for Singing, dancing, and acting … YES, acting! 

Inspired by Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink, Hughesical is a musical tribute to John Hughes, the man who established the modern American teen movie genre - in all its 1980s glory! Perhaps it’s the soundtrack of your childhood, or perhaps you just love Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall – either way, this show will be, like, totally righteous!

Featuring hit songs by Madonna, The Boss, Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, Bon Jovi, George Michael, Whitney Houston, and more! 

This incredible fundraising initiative co-chaired by Carrie Mazoff and Elissa Lifson puts you center stage and benefits the Segal Centre's commitment to world-class English theatre, Jewish culture, and arts education.
