MTP GOES TO THE MOVIES (eASTER PARADE) - sUN aPRIL 14, 12:55 PM

Cineplex Odeon Westmount Cinemas, 755 Wonderland Rd S

"It only happens when I dance with you..." MTP wants you to join in all the holiday fun with Judy Garland and Fred Astaire in EASTER PARADE!

Mark your calendars as MTP goes to the movies! Join us on Sunday April 14th at 12:55pm at Cineplex Westmount Cinemas at Westmount Mall for the screening of the MGM movie musical EASTER PARADE featuring the songs of Irving Berlin!

In this lavish musical, Broadway star Don Hewes' (Fred Astaire) dancing partner (Ann Miller) goes solo, and Don declares that he can make a hit performer out of the next dancer he sees. This turns out to be the inexperienced Hannah (Judy Garland), who bristles as Don tries to make her into his old partner. But as he realizes that he is falling in love with Hannah, Don knows that he must let her grow into her own kind of dancer if he wants her to reach her full potential. This delightful backstage musical features memorable songs by Irving Berlin including "It Only Happens When I Dance With You", "A Couple of Swells", "Shakin' the Blues Away", and the iconic holiday classic "Easter Parade".

Be sure to come in your best Easter bonnet on April 14th for the return of this beloved film classic! Join us after the screening for a photo in the lobby as well!


help us grow! Capital campaign

MUSICAL THEATRE NEEDS A NEW HOME (2).jpg

Musical Theatre Productions turns 30 this year and it is time for us to find a more permanent location to call home.

With this goal in mind, we have launched a new Capital Campaign. For as little as $20 you can buy a 'virtual brick' and feel a part of MTP’s future. All the funds from these donations will go to support the development of a location that MTP can use to store props and costumes, construct our sets and provide additional rehearsal space for future productions. All donors will be recognized on our website for their contributions both on our website and in the new space. This is a long term goal and we want to invite you to be part of the continual evolution of our group. So please consider donating to our campaign to help us find a new home to continue our mission to nurture the talent in the community and to inspire a passion for the arts."

DONATIONS MAY BE MADE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:

  • During a show: Cheque/Cash payment at our 50-50 table

  • Email: Send e-transfer to treasurer@mtplondon.ca [use password hint: Donation, and password: mtplondon]

  • Speak to any member of the board
