The Musical Stage Company
We want to meet your performing and non-performing arts students!
The Musical Stage Company is pleased to announce the fall 2022 in-person program of ONE SONG GLORY, our flagship free youth arts training and education program.
ONE SONG GLORY is a fully subsidized five-weekend long youth musical theatre training intensive that builds community, self-confidence, and self-expression through a combination of new music creation, masterclasses, rehearsal, and a public showcase.
Our goal is to offer performing and non-performing participants a professional creation and rehearsal experience, insight about the industry, the chance to create new work, and the guidance to develop a fruitful career in the performing arts.
Since its creation ONE SONG GLORY has been held in person in Toronto, offering Ontario teens a place to create, perform and celebrate their shared love of musical theatre. In 2021 we introduced “ONE SONG GLORY in the Classroom”, an opportunity for young people in schools across Canada to receive free workshops in their classrooms and studios from local, high-achieving, professional artists.
We are thrilled to offer both programs once again in 2022, growing our community of young performers and non-performing artists, and giving students access to fully subsidized training led by Canada’s leading musical artists.
We are proud to report that to date, over 850 young Canadians have completed ONE SONG GLORY, without any cost to the participants. Past participants are now gracing international stages and Canadian concert halls including Broadway and the Stratford and Shaw Festivals.
With ONE SONG GLORY youth will come together to train and create under the guidance of theatre professionals in a positive and encouraging environment.
