Address: 910 Gladstone Avenue Ottawa, ON K1R 6Y4

This will be our 22nd annual “teen” show, for students who wish to pursue their craft at a high level.  Although all of our workshops at the Academy are run professionally, these particular workshops will are focused on training students who may wish to pursue musical theatre as a career, or wish to take their skills to the next level.  Alumni of our teen shows over the years have gone on to careers in professional theatre, including the Stratford Festival, Mirvish, and even Broadway.

We very carefully choose our show for this workshop each year to insure that there are meaty roles for all of our star performers, a powerful musical score, and excellent dance opportunities, so that all of our cast have the chance to perform as true “triple threats.”  We also look for a show that weighs powerful, and often difficult, social issues, as an integral part of our two weeks together is to provide a safe space in circle discussions to air different ideas and opinions about the themes and issues of the show.  In this way, we can learn more about each other as fellow humans, and truly know what it’s like to “walk in someone else’s shoes.”  Rent is an epic show that gives us the perfect opportunity to do all of the above.

Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
