Photo Coverage: Theatre 20's Taste of The Season
On Monday January 23rd Theatre 20 held a splashy, star-studded event at Toronto’s The National Club to announce the shows that would make up its inaugural season. This event had been eagerly anticipated since the formation of Theatre 20 a year ago, and the group delivered on those expectations. Artistic Director Adam Brazier acted as MC for the evening, with speeches from founding artist Colm Wilkinson, Theatre 20 Board Chair David Morris and Sheridan College Associate Dean of Performing Arts Michael Rubinoff.
On hand to celebrate the announcement were many of Theatre 20’s founding artists, community supporters, special musical guests, up and coming performers and writers and invited members of the press. The overall tone was one of tremendous support and encouragement as everyone genuinely seemed to be rooting for a successful opening season for Canada’s newest (and arguably most promising) musical theatre company.
The inaugural season will be comprised of three shows: Bloodless - The Story of Burke and Hare (to be directed by Colm Wilkinson), Raindogs (in connection with Sheridan's Canadian Music Theatre Project) and Stephen Sondheim's Company (directed by Adam Brazier with Gary Griffin consulting).
