RETOLD

Prompted by 3 acclaimed short stories by award-winning Canadian author Mavis Gallant, Canada’s most exciting musical minds have created an imaginative triptych of short original musicals premiering at Toronto’s historic Reference Library. RETOLD is the second production of Launch Pad, a ground-breaking musical development residency from The Musical Stage Company and Yonge Street Theatricals.  This innovative program offers a 10-month residency in which musical theatre composers, lyricists and bookwriters navigate a full developmental process, shepherding 30-minute musicals from conception to production with guidance from skilled creative teams and internationally renowned mentors.
