Staged is a new multidisciplinary performing arts events which will raise funds for cancer research at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.  The show will feature dance, live music, visual art, and film, with a focus on creating collaborations across the forms. Following the evening's performance, there will be a post -show reception with a silent auction, giveaways, and more. Staged is being held on Friday, October 12 at the Al Green Theatre in Toronto.

Founders/Directors, Spenser McRae and Mahesh Halkeri strive to contribute to the fight to end cancer by using their shared passion for the arts as the driving force behind this event. Their hope is that Staged will reach the goal of raising $10,000 for cancer research.

Staged operates on a not for profit basis and is currently funded by the directors. We also rely greatly on the generosity and support of the members of our community.

The arts can be a powerful and transformative tool which can surpass limitations, encourage collaborations and bring communities together. It is the vision of Spenser and Mahesh that Staged will inspire people to join together to raise money for this great cause.
