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).  BWW gives its readers full coverage of the announcement and the up and coming season here

We are thrilled to bring our readers these exclusive photos from the spectacular evening, including the first ever photograph of "Canadian Musical Theatre Royalty" Colm Wilkinson and Louise Pitre captured together!

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.
