OPEN THE WINDOW is a nationwide celebration of Arts Education and Canadian Musical Theatre. Theatre Collingwood is delighted to be working with Talk Is Free Theatre on this project, and incorporating into the project TIFT’S CMTdB (Canadian Musical Theatre Database).
A committee of artists asked students and educators from across the country to nominate peers and colleagues who had a positive impact over the course of the Pandemic. The committee then helped each nominator select a song from a Canadian musical that best celebrates the achievement of their nominee.
The concert of chosen songs will be performed by some of Canada’s most prominent musical theatre performers, including Louise Pitre, Chilina Kennedy, Arlene Duncan, Gabi Epstein, Jake Epstein, and Nicole Joy-Fraser, among many others, featuring songs by Leslie Arden, Corey Payette, Joey Miller, Richard Ouzounian, Kevin Wong and others.
Directed by Saccha Dennis and Peter Jorgensen, concerts will take place in Barrie on November 15, 16 and 17, with a different program on each night. Then on November 18th one of those concerts will move over to Collingwood and be presented at New Life Church. Mark Camillari will be the Musical Director (you may have seen him perform this summer accompanying Gabi Epstein in Collingwood at The Porchside Festival).
