KITCHENER — On his path to become part of the cast of one of the most popular stage musicals in production, Kitchener-raised Ryan Bondy faced a daunting dilemma.
In order to clear the next hurdle in his quest to join the cast of musical The Book of Mormon, Bondy, aSt. Mary’s Catholic Secondary School graduate, had to make Matt Stone — one half of the duo that created the South Park series — burst into laughter.
"I literally put water on my face and felt kind of light headed. And I was like ’ this is not the time to pass out Ryan, this is not the time, get it together Bondy," the former Charlottetown and Blyth festival performer recalled.
But while sitting next to Stone in a small room filled with many of the show’s creative leaders, Bondy pulled it off.
"When you can make somebody laugh with their own material, it’s a good thing."
The national touring production of the satirical Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon” will stop at Chrysler Hall Oct. 28 to Nov. 2. Tickets for the show will go on sale to the public next Friday, Sept. 5.
