marathonofhopeMARATHON OF HOPE

Will be performed from November 27 to December 8, 2013 at Macdonald Heaslip Hall. Music and lyrics by John Connolly. Based on the Book by Jim Betts. Orchestrations and arrangements are by Michael Mulrooney.

Be the first to witness the development of a new folk musical about one of Canada’s enduring heroes. The Canadian Music Theatre Project presents MARATHON OF HOPE, based on the incredible true story of Terry Fox. In the summer of 1980, Terry ran across Canada, a marathon every day to raise money for cancer research and captured the heart of the nation in the process. After 143 days, Terry was forced to end his run when his cancer returned. He passed away on June 28, 1981 at 22 years of age.

See a professional cast of actors, in our “theatrical laboratory”, develop this exciting new work. MARATHON OF HOPE is presented in collaboration with the family of Terry Fox.

Will be performed from November 21 to 30, 2013 in the Studio Theatre.

What happens when Canada’s most traveled, “Best Cabaret Performer” assembles a full band and, armed with her own brand of comedy and pathos, takes a walk on the scarier side of the street? FULL DARK, expands Sheridan alumni Sharron Matthew’s signature, award winning style to delve into the darker sides of storytelling. Using the music of Elton John, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Beyonce and the Righteous Brothers, Sharron creates an evening of ‘songologues’ about growing up fatherless, about being bullied, about sexuality and danger, the unacceptable, and the unexplained. This is a not-to-be-missed creation provided by one of Canada’s foremost entertainers.

Will be performed from December 3 to 7, 2013 in the Studio Theatre and was created by and is starring Michael Hughes.

MICKEY & JUDY is a hilarious pseudo-memoir, chronicling Sheridan alumni Hughes’ childhood obsession with musicals and his journey from the psychiatric ward to Off-Broadway. Chock-full of comical anecdotes about his childhood spent channeling Judy Garland, dramatic readings from his actual doctor’s charts, and a musical score that borrows from Broadway classics and the Judy Garland songbook, MICKEY & JUDY is about learning to accept yourself and following your dreams. Since its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival, MIKEY & JUDY has performed across North America and Internationally to sold-out audiences and rave five-star reviews.

Will be performed from February 11 to 23, 2014 at Macdonald Heaslip Hall. It is based on the book by Jeffrey Lane. Music and lyrics are by David Yazbek. It is also based on the film “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”. This comedy is written by Dale Launer, Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning.

Be transported to the French Riviera for a night of music, dancing, and high society high jinks as we follow con artists, Lawrence Jameson, suave and sophisticated and his rival Freddy Benson, the small-time crook. After meeting on a train, they unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the both of them. So they make a bet: the first to swindle a young heiress, triumphs and the other must leave town. What follows are a series of schemes, masquerades and double-crosses in which nothing may ever be exactly what it seems.

Will be performed from February 13 to 23, 2014 in the Studio Theatre. The music and lyrics are by Stephen Schwartz, and this performance was conceived by John-Michael Tebelak.

Based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew, GODSPELL remains one of the most popular rock musicals of all time.  With a playful and poignant score by Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz, GODSPELL is the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love that has touched theatregoers all over the world.  Boasting a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit “Day By Day”, GODSPELL is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.

This tragic and true story, PARADE dramatizes the 1913 trial of Jewish factory manager, Leo Frank, who was falsely accused and eventually convicted of murdering a 13-year old employee, Mary Phagan. Filled with beautiful and evocative music, PARADE is at once a riveting murder mystery, a gripping courtroom drama, a moving love story, a profile in courage and a searing social commentary.  Daring, innovative and bold, PARADE won Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score in 2000.
