Starvox Entertainment is pleased to announce casting for the Canadian debut of GRAEME OF THRONES. Torontonians will be able to vie for a seat on the throne with the comedic parody, on stage at the Panasonic Theatre (651 Yonge St.) beginning Tuesday, October 11, 2016. Tickets for this hilarious original parody are now on sale to the public at mirvish.com.

Original cast members Ali Brice (Graeme) and Libby Northedge (Bryony) are joined by Canadian born, Michael Condron (Paul), who has appeared in Seasons 5 and 6 of Game of Thrones as Bowen Marsh.

In this critically-acclaimed theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms, direct from sold out shows in London's West End, avid 'Thrones' fan Graeme just wants to recreate his favorite fantasy saga on stage - aided and abetted by his best friend Paul and the girl he used to fancy at school - Bryony.

He doesn't quite have the same budget as the TV show, or as many cast members, or the performance skill required, but he's sure GEORGE RR MARTIN would approve - and that's what matters. But when news reaches them that an influential theatrical producer is in the building, Graeme decides that this could be his big break - as long as nothing goes wrong...

Created by the UK's top comedy writers including Jon Brittain, AnDrew Doyle, "Britain's hottest young comedian" - GQ Magazine, and Dan Evans, "Original and inventive" - The Times. GRAEME OF THRONES is an original and un-authorized parody on the international phenomenon that is Game Of Thrones, a treat for fans and an introduction for the unenlightened.
