SideBiz Shop 'n' Share Show Event Banner

Join us on Thursday Nov. 12 for a live variety show from Sheridan Alumni and SideBiz Studio!

This virtual event is your chance to enjoy an evening of interviews and performances featuring Sheridan Musical Theatre grads. These alumni artists will also be showing off their off-stage highlights. Each grad is a vendor with SideBiz Studio– an online marketplace that showcases the products and services offered by the Canadian arts community.

Kicking things off at 7 p.m., the SideBiz Shop ‘N’ Share Show will be hosted by fellow Musical Theatre alum Dillan Chiblow (’13). Dillan is the host of and producer of Voicing The Circle – an Indigenous-led podcast about life in the art.

The event will be powered by Stream Stage Productions – a theatre-focused production company founded by husband-wife duo Daniel Abrahamson (Musical Theatre ’05) and Kayla James (Music Theatre ’08).

Grab a seat in the comfort of your own home, enjoy an evening of entertainment, and get a head start on your holiday shopping. After the show, you’ll have the opportunity to support our alums on SideBiz by purchasing their products online.

More about SideBiz Studio
Music Theatre grads Jacob Sheffield ('18) and Kelsey Verzotti ('17) realized early on that the COVID-19 pandemic was going to have long-term impacts on the theatre and arts industry. To help, the duo developed SideBiz Studio - an online marketplace dedicated to showcasing the off-stage talents of the Canadian arts community.

Through an active social media presence and word-of-mouth marketing, SideBiz’s list of vendors grew to nearly 50 in less than a month. The online marketplace features a number of Sheridan’s Musical Theatre alums showing off their various products and services.
