On November 19th the stars of Canadian theatre, film, TV and music came out in to participate in a variety show called It's Always Something, which is an annual event to raise money for Gilda's Club. This year marked the 10th Anniversary of the event and was a truly remarkable evening of celebration.

It's Always Something was conceived ten years ago by FrEd Levy and Rick Muller as a way to raise money for Gilda's Club, a very special charity that puts an emphasis on the healing power of comedy and laughter in the face of cancer. Every year stars volunteer their time for the variety show, which is an inspired mix of music, comedy, theatre and education.

This year the creators wanted to do something bigger and better than ever before, and they definitely accomplished that. They set the bar high by moving the venue to a location almost double the size of its previous home (The Princess of Wales) and amassed a line-up of talent that was first rate. Many of the cast of the Original Canadian production of Godspell (Gilda's first professional show) were on hand, as well as SCTV alums and friends eager to honour her memory.

BWW is thrilled to bring you these exclusive photos from the show, in conjunction with our coverage of the pre and post show events.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
