HOGTOWN is a new and exciting immersive theatrical experience coming this summer to Toronto's historic Campbell House Museum. Incorporating drama, music and dance, HOGTOWN aims to create a completely immersive environment where the audience has the power to create their own adventure and discover the dark secrets of our city's past. With over 30 professional actors, a full band and a crew of over 20 creatives, HOGTOWN is the hottest ticket this season.
Welcome to Campbell House, 1926. It's the night before a critical mayoral election that will determine the future of the city. Although prohibition is still in full effect, that's not stopping tonight's host, union boss Bob Delacourt, from opening the doors to the hottest gin joint in the city, featuring the White Hot Jazz Band (hint: it's in the basement). Not exactly the place you'd expect to find the two frontrunners but tonight both incumbent Thomas Foster and his chief rival, Councilman Sam McBride, will make an appearance. Foster is planning to broker a secret deal with Delacourt, since the union boss is the one with real power in this town. Problem is, Foster knows Delacourt and his membership are currently backing McBride in the race. So tonight? It's time to play let's make a deal to become the next mayor of Toronto.
Speaking of deals, rumour has it that kingpin Chicago rumrunner Franco Vitale is headed to Hogtown this very night to secure a bootlegging foothold in the city. Add to the mix a house filled with politicians and police, showgirls and gun molls, speakeasies and secret societies, reckless teenagers and hapless moonshiners and you have the world of our play. Everyone's got something at stake, a heart to break, or a deal to make. Let the party begin!
