Participants in One Song Glory.

One Song Glory

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, 45 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, day-long One Song Glory workshops in their community. 45 participants from these sessions will 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.
