St. Charles College students Matt Kuzenko and Lucas Martin participate in the game show which was part of the gambling presentation.

October 22, 2013 - A free gambling awareness theatre production hit the stage at St. Charles College on October 23, 2013.  The presentation is supported by the Responsible Gaming Council and explores online gambling, gaming and cyber bullying. 
 
The production hones in on the lives of young adults who are trying to start a band, hold down jobs and live their lives with money they don’t necessarily have at their fingertips.  One of the characters ends up betting with “Scared Money” which refers to money you don’t have at your fingertips.
 
The production is touring Northern Ontario this month and the crew has made stops in Moose Factory, Moosonee, Timmins and now Sudbury.
 
The production explores online gambling, gaming and cyber bullying with the characters trying to live their lives, hold down jobs and work on a career in the music industry.
 
Grade 11 and 12 students at St. Charles College attended the presentation and afterwards they were treated to a game show that questioned them on their learning.
