Students from St. Clair College’s Music Theatre Performance program are making their triumphant return to the stage this spring in two mainstage shows at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts’ Chrysler Theatre.

The season begins with a step backwards in time to the early days of our country, with Allen Cole and Vincente de Tourdonnet’s epic musical Pélagie, directed by Katherine Kaszas. This score and heartwarming story illustrate a chapter from Canadian history that often remains untold: the forced relocation of the Acadian people and their eventual journey back home to the land they loved. A uniquely Canadian story with all the scope and power of a Broadway classic, this production is a special opportunity for St. Clair’s students to showcase their remarkable talents while telling an important tale from our national history.

Taking full advantage of the return to live performance, St. Clair will present a second mainstage production at the Chrysler Theatre this season, with a new musical and dance extravaganza crafted around the greatest hits of the last half-century. The soundtrack is the result of a collaboration between Director and Choreographer Melissa Williams and Music Director Michael Karloff, the dynamic creative team behind such past St. Clair productions as The Rocky Horror Show and A Chorus Line. This production features a lively combination of thrilling dance numbers and exciting new arrangements of hits from your favourite artists, from Elvis to Lady Gaga and everything in between. See the songs you’ve always loved brought to life like never before in this vivid and joyful production.
