One Song Glory is a musical theatre training program for teens ages 13 to 19 across Ontario that builds self-confidence and self-expression. The program is fully subsidized for all participants, ensuring that affordability is not a barrier to participation.
Each year, 50 youth from diverse backgrounds and communities across Ontario come together to train under the guidance of Toronto’s top musical theatre professionals in a positive and encouraging environment. Anyone between the ages 13-19 is invited to register to participate in one of our free, audition workshops in their community. 50 participants from these audition sessions will then be invited to our free 4-weekend training intensive.
Our commitment to building the audiences and artists of tomorrow is focused around our musical theatre training programs. We are proud to report that to date, over 600 young people from across the province have completed One Song Glory, without any costs to the participants.
Our training intensive has closed for One Song Glory 2017 and we are very proud of our 50 young participants who truly impressed us over the 4 week fall intensive.
Audition information for One Song Glory 2018 will be available in May 2018.
