RENT takes TO by Storm

June 22, 2012

Alumni, students and faculty gathered recently to celebrate a milestone: the run of Theatre Sheridan’s RENT at Toronto’s Panasonic Theatre this spring. A post-performance reception held on May 27 drew music theatre students (including cast members who are now graduates), faculty and alumni from programs as varied as Paralegal and Early Childhood Education.

Among the alumni raising a toast to the cast was Lisa Sonshine (Music Theatre-Performance 2003), one half of the duo Sonshine and Broccoli, who have been entertaining children in the GTA for almost a decade.

Theatre Sheridan made its Toronto debut with 32 performers from the graduating class of the Music Theatre Performance Program, who worked with top theatre professionals to create this original production.

Congratulations to three RENT cast members who have gone on to roles outside Ontario. Aaron Hastelow is heading up the cast of Anne of Green Gables back in his home province of PEI. Julia McLennan and David Ball are off to Manitoba as part of a production of Footloose.
