About the Tour:

This tour will be a concert revue of all Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most iconic Musical Theatre repertoire in celebration of his upcoming 75th Birthday.  This is a concert version and therefore the production will not be ‘staged’ nor choreographed – the focus will be on the drama of the voice.  For this, we are looking for exceptional voices that can technically and dramatically manage the varied needs of this repertoire.

The tour will visit roughly 20 Southern Ontario in the Spring, and a further 20 cities through Alberta to Manitoba in the Fall of 2023. Venues will range in size from 250 – 1600.
