Music theatre practitioners from around the world will gather at Sheridan College June 24-26, 2014 for Song, Stage and Screen IX an international conference of papers, talks and practical demonstrations designed to bring together leaders to discuss music theatre. To celebrate the conference theme, “The Art of Collaboration in Musical Theatre”, The Theory of Relativity by Drama Desk Award nominated writers Neil Bartram and Brian Hill will have a one-time, live performance upon the opening of the conference featuring a global virtual choir.

In 2012, the Canadian Music Theatre Project at Sheridan College commissioned Bartram and Hill to create something specifically for and about college age students based on student’s actual experiences. What emerged was a musical theatre piece unlike any other that celebrates the profound effect of our intersecting lives. The Theory of Relativity has now been seen globally including productions at Sheridan College, Penn State, Goodspeed Musicals and The Iris Theatre in London, UK.

College students are invited to be a part of The Theory of Relativity Virtual Choir. “What better way to present a show about human connection than to connect people from around the world through this exciting collaboration,” said composer and lyricist Neil Bartram. Through the magic of technology, voice and video submissions will be virtually combined with others to become the thrilling finale of the live performance of the show performed by alumni and students from The Boston Conservatory, The Hartt School at the University of Hartford, Penn State and Sheridan College.
