  • Toronto’s three favourite not-for-profit musical theatre companies have joined forces to create “And 5, 6, 7, 8… A Musical Theatre Dance Party,” a celebration of the amazing Toronto musical theatre community and an excuse to cut loose and shake your “Shipoopi”! The event will take place at the Drake Underground, the Drake Hotel’s swanky underground lair (1150 Queen Street West). Admission is FREE – please RSVP to ari@actingupstage.com.

    The evening will feature three special guest DJs: Acting Up Stage presents fierce and fabulous songstress Sharron Matthews, Angelwalk Theatre presents hunky triple threat Justin Bott and Theatre 20 presents theatre-super-producer/arts & culture junkie Derrick Chua. Each will present a 45-minute set of their favourite get-down-and-boogie tunes from the international musical theatre canon. The evening will also feature dance-along/sing-along video, door prizes and giveaways! So get your “Time Warp” on, “Ease on Down the Road” to the “MAMBO!” at the school gym. This evening of celebration and cooperation is supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
