Coal Patrol: A Christmas Comedy Revue at MCC!

CLICK HERE FOR TICKET INFO

Good Morning Apocalypse is getting OUT of the holiday spirit with their newest, tongue-in-cheek Christmas revue, Coal Patrol, November 24 and December 7, 2017 at Midland Cultural Centre in Midland, Ontario.

Enjoy a seasonal buffet dinner (prepared by Café Roxy) as you sit back and enjoy the award-winning comedy troupe Good Morning Apocalypse perform their brand-new adult-themed Christmas comedy revue.

Leave the little ones at home with visions of sugarplums dancing in their head, because there’s stuff in this show that will put anyone on the Naughty List. From a Batman hellbent on stopping kids from singing “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells,” to the moment that Rudolph finally snaps from all the insults and abuse, to the production problems at the Red Ryder BB Gun Factory, every character in this comedy revue is poised to get a lump of the black stuff in their stocking this holiday. Forget Red and Green.. This Christmas, we’re getting Back in Black!

Looking for something new to do for your office holiday party? Or maybe you are looking for a fun girls night out?  Coal Patrol is the perfect way to laugh away the holiday blues.

48-Hour Film Challenge Underway!

The Good Morning Apocalypse gang / Midland Film Company have begun working on their 48Film Festival project, wherein teams write, film, edit and deliver a short film in just 48 hours.

GMA has participated in similar challenges before, creating Being Kevin, Fitting In, The Adventures of Jess Silver: International Yoga Instructor and most recently, the award-winning The Beast (Best Acting Ensemble).

The challenge began last evening when the team was given their “challenge pack” consisting of a genre, a character, a prop and a line of dialogue that must be included in the film.  We’re going to keep our challenge pack close to the chest for now (spoilers!).

As of this post, the team has completed filming and is moving on to the editing phase of the project.

Although the film will be completed by tomorrow night, we won’t be able to show you the film or tell you much of anything about it  until the competition closes at the end of November.  Stay tuned here or follow us on social media (FB, TW, IG) to see the results!

13 Ways The World Ends – Toronto Fringe

Get Your Advance Tickets for 13 Ways The World Ends!

Hailing from Midland & Penetanguishene, ON, the creative minds behind Maple Valley Comedy and Silent Heist bring you a brand new comedy revue. After performing to sold out audiences at the 2017 Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, they are thrilled to be back in Toronto and excited to be a part of the Toronto Fringe Festival for the very first time together, with this comedy revue about the end of the world.

More accurately, the “ends” of the world. Because in this show, the world meets its end in no less than thirteen different ways! Meet the soccer moms who fend off waves of zombie hordes between playdates. Follow a young couple in their date to the Tree Museum, which also comes with free entry to the Bee Museum. Watch as No Sick Days Mary turns a case of the sniffles into a new global pandemic. And join the Johnsons, as they watch the sun go out the way that God intended… as a family, gosh darn it.

13 Ways the World Ends will be performed from July 5-16, at the Theatre Passe Muraille. Tickets are $10.
