The Seaway Valley Theatre Company is delighted to announce that they will soon unveil their new children’s production, “The Show Must Go Online!,” the company’s ﬁrst ever online play.
A frazzled drama teacher sends a video message to her students from her home ofﬁce, announcing that their production of “Brushes With Greatness: The Dental Hygiene Musical” has been cancelled! She tries to hang up, but accidentally leaves the camera running as she receives a phone call from the principal who tells her that without the musical, the drama program will be shut down. Whatever will she do? Can her class save the day?
Created speciﬁcally to be performed remotely, this hilarious and one of a kind children’s show is directed by longtime SVTC member, Amy Malyon. While she has choreographed and been seen onstage in many of the company’s musicals, this is her ﬁrst stab at directing. She has assembled a cast of ﬁfteen talented young performers from Cornwall and beyond to play twenty-two characters. Producing the show are Allison Main and Brigitte Lefebvre-Malyon.
“The Show Must Go Online!” will be premiere on Sunday, August 16th, 2020 at 8:00 PM on both YourTV Cornwall and on www.svtc.ca . The show will then be streamed on www.svtc.ca from August 17th to 30th.
Although viewing is free, “pay what you can” donations via PayPal to help the company ﬁnance future productions will be gratefully accepted.
This is a truly unique theatrical experience that is not to be missed. For more information, visit the SVTC’s website and Facebook page.
