Sketch group The Kids in the Hall is reuniting for a live staged reading of the script for their 1996 cult movie Brain Candy. On Tuesday, March 11th, the group will take the stage at Toronto Sketchfest (tickets here), complete with accompaniment with Brain Candy's original composer Craig Northey from the band The Odds, and Chris Murphy and Gregory MacDonald of Sloan.
