The Rocky Hor­ror Pic­ture Show is cur­rently be­ing re­made at our city’s fa­mous cas­tle, Casa Loma. The made-for-TV pro­duc­tion of the 1975 cult clas­sic will see a new star-stud­ded cast, which in­cludes Ben Vereen, who made a pit stop at Earl Haig Sec­ondary School in be­tween shoots to give stu­dents lessons on act­ing.

Lea­side’s own Martha McCabe has earned her­self a spot on the Cana­dian swim team af­ter fin­ish­ing se­cond in the qual­i­fy­ing tri­als for the 200 me­tre back­stroke. She is among the six Toronto qual­i­fiers who will be at­tend­ing the 2016 Olympics in Rio this sum­mer.

On May 27, a cel­e­bra­tion will be held at Massey Hall to hon­our the life and legacy of the late, great For­est Hill mu­si­cian Jeff Healey. A starstud­ded line-up of Healey’s mu­si­cal friends and peers will per­form and all pro­ceeds will go to World Eye Can­cer Hope.

The es­tate of the late For­est Hill res­i­dent Joseph Rot­man has do­nated $30 mil­lion to the Uni­ver­sity of Toronto’s Rot­man School of Man­age­ment. The gift marks Rot­man as the school’s most gen­er­ous bene­fac­tor.
