Putting It Together: In Concert
The Musical Stage Company
The Musical Stage Company is inviting submissions from Toronto performers for Putting it Together: In Concert, an upcoming project in the summer of 2023.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
An evolution of our Porchside Song series and our popup Musical Moments series, this year concerts will be curated to showcase the works The Musical Stage Company has in development. We will be bringing musical experiences to Toronto and Greater Toronto Area communities, lighting up the city through story and song in eight performances of a 45-minute concert. The concert is an outdoor event that will be touring to various venues across the GTA.
This 45-minute concert will take a deep dive into the “I Want Song” from musicals currently in development at The Musical Stage Company. We want to explore what motivates a character, how that invites an audience to root for them, and embark on a journey of various versions of this device used in musical theatre. A celebration of hopes, wishes and wants, this concert gives us the permission to dream big!
**Please note** Artists will be performing in varying weather conditions, and in various locations throughout Toronto & the GTA.
