A gaggle of Simon Fraser University grads will take part in the opening performance at the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre at SFU Woodward’s.
The Show Must Go On, part of the annual PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, begins tonight and runs through Jan. 23.
It features more than 20 SFU alums — including newspaper dance critic and former Lions Bay mayor Max Wyman — performing various tasks as a DJ spins pop songs.
One of the performers, Tanya Marquardt, who graduated from SFU’s theatre department in 2000, said the opening of the modern theatre is a big occasion for SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts.
“They wanted alumni to open the new theatre,” Marquardt said. “It’s a really important thing for the department ... It’s been so much work, and it’s been so long coming.”
