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 750 young people from across the province have completed One Song Glory, without any costs to the participants.
Any youth age 13-19 is welcome to sign up for one of our audition workshop sessions which will be taking place on October 5 and 6. Industry professionals will coach and mentor candidates in a masterclass style audition, allowing all performers the chance to learn and grow within the audition process. Each participant signs up for a 1.5 hour timeslot and must prepare one musical theatre song in advance. Please bring a copy of the sheet music for the accompanist. This is your chance to show us your personality, passion and pipes – come with a smile and have a great time!
