Music Theatre Happenings This Week

The Music Theatre Department continues its department-wide masterclasses this week after last week’s wonderful sessions with Rebecca Poff (vocal) and Nick Nesbitt (fitness for theatre). On Wednesday, we will host a session on Careers in the Arts with three amazing guests! Aisha Jarvis is an ESA and Sheridan grad who has gone on to perform in Mamma Mia with the Charlottetown Festival, Grease at the Elgin Theatre and Chicago in Regina’s Globe Theatre. Jeff Madden is currently in the cast of Come From Away, has performed numerous seasons with the Shaw Festival and won a Dora award for his portrayal of Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. Lisa Horner is also part of the current cast of Come from Away and has won two Dora awards as the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz and as Little Edie in Grey Gardens. We will have a question and answer from 12-12:30 with all three in one Google Meet and then 3 simultaneous masterclasses from 12:30-1:30, open to the entire department.

On Friday, we celebrate our MT grads with the Party Piece Palooza! Join us on our YouTube channel (link here)for performances by many of our Grade 12 class. Tune in and enjoy the show !
