Skule Nite is the University of Toronto’s world-famous engineering sketch comedy musical and revue. It is entirely written, created, and produced by engineering students, for engineering students.
Celebrating its 102nd anniversary in March 2023, Skule Nite has a long and rich history. Skule Nite was first performed at Toronto’s Massey Hall in March of 1921. The first show consisted of 11 skits and was accompanied by a student band. In 1923, the show was moved to Hart House Theatre. In its 103 year run, Skule Nite has only been cancelled a handful of times. Skule Nite was soundly cancelled one year during World War II (1942), and and for 4 years in the early 1970s when an attempt to replace Skule Nite with a broadway musical “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off” flopped miserably. After its return in 1973, Skule Nite has been a raging success, with an unbroken run of shows, generally including 5 performances over 4 nights performed at Hart House. In its most recent history, Skule Nite has also taken the format of two filmed productions in 2021 and 2022 during the COVID-19 pandemic.
