You may remember the McCaigs taking the Fringe by storm in 2004 with their debut Waiting For Trudeau: The Return of the King. It was both an audience favourite and quickly acclaimed as the Critic's Pick by the Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star and Now Magazine. They followed it up with Nursery School Musical, which was the top-selling show of the 20th Anniversary Toronto Fringe Festival in 2008. It also was the Critic's Pick in the Globe & Mail, Toronto Star and NOW Magazine, and named both "Pick of the Fringe" and "Best of the Fringe" . It then went on to take Houston, Texas by storm in its American debut, before being expanded and heading home to a smash limited engagement at Toronto's Berkeley Street Theatre. It is currently being turned into a feature film by Corsair Entertainment.

The cast of Bosco & Jones includes Paul Constable (Nursery School Musical, Second City, "Dan for Mayor", "She's The Mayor", Canadian Comedy Award winner) as Bosco, Matt Bois (The Overcoat 10th Anniversary Tour, "Flashpoint") as Jones, Patty Sullivan (everyone's favourite CBC Kid's host, Ross Petty's Cinderella) as Lisa, Allan Gillespie (Full Monty, Guys & Dolls) as Everybody's, and Brett McCaig (Guys and Dolls, Forever Plaid, Joseph...) as Wilson. Completing the production team once again will be choreographer Valerie Stanois (Nursery School Musical, Mirvish's Rock of Ages & We Will Rock You), and stage manager Heather Lacey (STLC, Solar Stage).
