You never know what to expect at Skule Nite! This will be the sixth year in a row Belinda will attend the show. The first year she almost died laughing for three solid hours (with one small intermission) at the sketches! The second year was good, but was more hammy. The third, fourth and fifth years were hilarious and classy with fantastic music numbers. In fact, one of the talented performers in the 2010 and 2011 Skule Nite shows went on to play a key role in the musical Hairspray presented by Curtain Call Players in 2011 and is now part of Second City's comedy troupe!
Skule Nite (pronounced "school night" -- engineers use the metric spelling) is the annual musical comedy revue produced by U of T's Engineering Society. The show is directed, written, produced, created and performed 100 per cent by students and students alike. The "1T4" part of this year's Skule Nite 1T4 name is engineer speak for "2014"!
Skule Nite is a series of comedic sketches, songs, and dances designed specifically to maximize hilarity and keep the audience optimally entertained (hey, they’re engineers after all). However, topics dealt with in the show are not limited to engineering. In fact, chances are that if people know about it, Skule Nite makes a joke out of it! This could include jokes about politicians, the news, Hollywood, etc.
WARNING: Some of the humour may not be in good taste. Well, they're engineering students!
Nearly 100 people help put the show together, including a cast of around 20 people. The Skule Nite cast is traditionally an energetic and enthusiastic group of people, each of whom adds their own special magic (talent, money, collections of doll monkeys, etc) to the show. What results from all of this is a production that brings people together in creating a show that has been a campus favourite for many years. More information.
Skule Nite History: Started in 1921, Skule Nite was originally held at Massey Hall. Entire terms were spent building the elaborate sets for the show. The show switched to Hart House Theatre in 1923, making this year's show, Skule Nite 1T4, the 93r Skule Nite at Hart House Theatre. Skule Nite is the longest running annual show at Hart House Theatre.
