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.
