Sing Your Heart Out!

It’s no secret – as the owner/operators of a company centered around children – my partner Randy and I are real theatre lovers. I grew up taking as many dance classes as could fill my time (and my mom could afford), and was exposed to everything from a daily dose of CBC radio to plays, musicals, and even opera in the many theatres around the city. Randy grew up being theatrical himself – taking the lead role in his high school production of “To Kill A Mockingbird” – something he is proud of to this day.

With this background, its no secret that we especially love to help the children in our programs find their passion for the theatre. With a range of performing arts programs from ballet and break dancing, to drama, music theatre and glee club – there is something to please every budding performer.

In our Spring 2012 term we got the chance to work with the wonderful students at The Sunnybrook School, in our Glee Club program run by our instructor Jasmine Bowen. In just 8 weeks they collaborated to write, arrange and direct their very own mini-musicals and at the end of the program we invited eager friends and family to watch as they performed the following “works in progress” in a supportive workshop setting.

It was a fantastic time – thanks Sunnybrook students for being so theatrical!
