Reefer Madness – Contest coming soon!


Keep your eyes open on October 17th.

On October 17th, Canada ends 95 years of cannabis prohibition. Did you know we’re only the 2nd country in the world to legalize #cannabis? Since the 30’s, cannabis has the subjects of decades of propaganda with the 1936 film, Reefer Madness, being the most well-known.

To celebrate the legalization happening on October 17th, we‘re holding a contest for your chance to win tickets to see the musical that completely satires its 30’s namesake – Reefer Madness – the Musical!

Workshops and New York Tour

Audition Workshop with Samantha Hill December 20, 12-4 pm
The goal of this workshop is to help students improve their confidence and awareness from the moment they walk into an audition room to the moment they exit. We will mimic an actual audition setting and go step by step through the process as well as work on acting moments in the student’s songs in order to support stronger future audition experiences. Please prepare a musical theatre song approx. 2 minutes in length
