“We just want to encore once more!” Musical Theatre Productions closes our 30th Anniversary Season with SHOW OFF: 30 Years of Musical Theatre, a gala celebration of our past as we launch into the future! Following in the footsteps of our sold-out benefit cabarets Dare to Dream, Night of Noir, Defying Gravity and Time Warp, SHOW OFF: 30 Years of Musical Theatre comes to steal the spotlight May 1-4, 2019, at the Wave, University Community Centre (2nd Floor), Western University.
Marking our 75th production, this dinner-theatre cabaret returns to the Wave, on the heels of last seasons smash-hit Broadway to the Max, with a dazzling night of encores featuring unforgettable numbers from MTP’s 30 years of shows including Broadway classics like Evita, Guys and Dolls, South Pacific; contemporary hits like Heathers, Seussical, The Drowsy Chaperone; and the return of Gilbert and Sullivan favourites like The Pirates of Penzance and H.M.S. Pinafore. Join us as MTP performers take the stage once more to reprise their memorable roles, along with new interpretations of old favourites and marvelous medleys that are sure to have you humming along!
Dress up in your finest cocktail attire and join us for a delicious three-course dinner before the performance.
All proceeds from this event support the continuation of MTP’s mission to nourish local talent and inspire a passion for musical theatre.
