FROM THE GROUND UP
From the Ground Up is a new initiative that will see the development of a new, original musical to debut for YES Theatre’s 10 year anniversary in 2019. This project will undergo development over the next two years. It will be created by bringing together numerous local youth and artists with the intention to depict what it is to be a young person in Northern Ontario. There is a renaissance taking place in the Canadian Musical Theatre scene and we believe that being in Northern Ontario, we have a responsibility to ensure that our stories, and our voice is represented on the national stage. From The Ground Up will mark YES Theatre’s first original piece.
YES THEATRE ORCHESTRA
This December, YES will launch the YES Theatre Orchestra. A new sub division of the company where we will present musical theatre pieces that feature lush, full scores with an orchestra of 20-35 musicians. Each December we will present family friendly musical selections in concert. This initiative will ensure that these musicals are heard the way they were intended to be heard; with full orchestration, offering our patrons a very intimate experience with the music.
Our first YES Theatre orchestra piece will be Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. December 6th-9th at Glad Tidings Church.
With a score by Oscar winning composer Alan Menken. We are certain this new branch of the company will become a celebrated community holiday tradition. Tickets will go on sale in early July.
