It's the iconic villainous duo that everybody loves to hate (or secretly love). Although their portrayals are convincing, we can assure you that the real men behind the roles of Gaston and LeFou are nothing like their theatrical counterparts. We talked with our very own Gaston, Bevan Bühler, and Lefou, Milton Dover, to take a peek into their process as they prepare for these roles.
Earlier this month, our cast of Beauty and the Beast gathered for the first time to perform a table read of this exciting production! In these first few hours we began to see this "tale as old as time" step off of the page and come to life. We are thrilled to have such a multi-talented cast and will be sharing many more behind-the-scenes sneak peeks in the coming weeks as we dive into rehearsals!
Big Fish, The Musical is stompin' its way into the Newmarket Theatre from January 25-28, 2018. Enjoy this peek behind the scenes at witches, daffodils, giants, circus folk, and the love between father and son!
On Sunday, December 3, the students of our Youth Performance Academy presented a black box performance of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol at Newmarket's Old Town Hall. The young performers had been rehearsing since September; weekly practices furthered their skills in dance, singing, and acting.
Big Fish, The Musical is making its way to Newmarket Theatre this January. The cast recently joined for their first table read and we are thrilled to share a peek behind-the-scenes at this exciting rehearsal. The table read was truly a high-energy event and unlike any table read we've seen. Cast members broke out into laughter, Alabama stompin', and tears as they told this heartwarming tale together for the first time.

It's time for another production to "sail on"! Titanic The Musical ran for a limited run at Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts from July 13-16. Maury Yeston and Peter Stone’s masterfully crafted musical examines the lives of the passengers aboard the doomed luxury liner Titanic — those in first class, middle class, and steerage — in the nights leading up the ship’s fatal encounter with an iceberg at sea. Directed by Sarah Langford & Rhiannon Langford, with musical direction by Bradley Barnham, Titanic is a heart-stopping and riveting ride through the final moments of the hopes and aspirations of those onboard.
Enjoy this look back at the first production in our 23rd Season.
