Bio: Michael Bazzocchi has been designing sets for international competition and theatre for the past five years. He is beginning a Masters of Applied Science in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Toronto, having just completed an undergraduate degree in Aerospace Engineering (BASc in Eng.Sci) at U of T. Most recently, Michael’s set design for a cloud factory received 1st Place at the Destination Imagination Global Finals competition for its unique incorporation of mechanical movement and bubbles into a 16ft tall semi-trapezium dome. Michael has experience designing sets for a variety of architectural and theatrical styles including large artistic set pieces in the Victorian, Gothic, Greek and Seussical styles.  He particularly enjoys enhancing dramatic performances through the innovative incorporation of mechanical components into his set designs. In his spare time Michael also enjoys doing community service. Michael is the current President and one of the founding members of the Trek for Teens Foundation for homeless youth. Michael is very excited to be involved in Bygone Theatre’s production of Dial M for Murder and looks forward to working with the cast and production team to develop a very entertaining and professional show.

Bygone Theatre was founded as a collective in October of 2012, and became an incorporated not-for-profit company in October of 2015. Our mandate is to produce theatre written or set in the early 20th century, focusing on historical aspects in design and incorporating a classic cinema aesthetic. ​ In 2019 Bygone Theatre was nominated for 14 Broadway World Toronto Awards, including Best Community Theatre and Best Play (Equity). We took home a total of 5 awards, 4 of which were for The Rear Window, including Best Direction of a Play (Equity); Best Original Lighting Design; Best Leading Actor (Play, Equity); and Best Featured Actress (Play, Equity). We took a hiatus our 2020/21 season because of the COVID19 pandemic, and used that time to develop our charitable initiatives. In August of 2021 we were nominated for the Toronto Star Readers' Choice Award for Best Live Theatre. Part of our mission involves inclusion and accessibility, and we strive to allow artists of all backgrounds and levels of experience the chance to have hands-on experience in whatever capacity they are most interested in; this has included youth outreach programs for high school students interested in production design, and acting opportunities for those who have never performed onstage.
