A few years ago this website started up and I was an actor who was putting out a Singer/Songwriter album. Now, it seems that I’ve transitioned again, this time into the world of Musical Theatre writing.
I am so happy to have a work included in the launch of the Canadian Musical Theatre Writers Collective, BLAME CANADA! The song I’ve composed music for will be sung by the incredibly talented Chilina Kenedy, alongside the works of writers who I have admired and taken classes with over the years, including Jim Betts and Leslie Arden. It’s the first time the world will hear a song from the musical that Richard Ouzounian (who has written brilliant lyrics for the piece) and I are writing called “The Moon in Autumn” based on Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. The event is March 24th at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, please check the gigs section (to the right and further down the page)for more information.
Also, check back soon for more great news about writing endeavours, including a song I’ve written that will be included in “Touch me: Songs for a (dis)Connected age” running in Calgary starting April 15th, Bingo Ladies opening at Lunchbox Theatre in Calgary April 28th (the one act version), Bingo Ladies opening at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre this July (full length version) and my new full length musical “The Naming of Port Rexton” opening at the Rising Tide Theatre Festival in Trinity Newfoundland this summer.
