The Musical Stage Company: One Song Glory Digital Audition, Application Deadline September 25

Toronto's Musical Stage Company is pleased to announce the Fall 2021 nationwide digital program of One Song Glory, our flagship free youth arts training and education program.

We want to meet your performing and non-performing arts students!

If you have or know of any interested students aged 13-19 please share this open call with them!

One Song Glory is a fully subsidized six-weekend-long intensive youth musical theatre training program that builds community, self-confidence, and self-expression through a combination of new music creation, masterclasses, rehearsal, and online presentations. Our goal is to offer performing and non-performing participants a professional creation and rehearsal experience, insight into the industry, the chance to create new work, and the guidance to develop a fruitful career in the performing arts.

Since its creation this program has been held in person in Toronto, offering Ontario teens a place to create, perform and celebrate their shared love of musical theatre. In 2020 we shifted to an all-digital format and invited participation from young artists from across Canada. We are thrilled to offer this program digitally again and continue growing our national network of young artists. We are excited to once again grow our community of young performers and non-performing artists, and give students from across the country (who reside in remote, rural and urban communities) access to fully subsidized training led by Canada's leading musical artists.

We are proud to report that to date, over 1000 young Canadians have completed One Song Glory, without any cost to the participants. Past participants are now gracing international stages and Canadian concert halls including Broadway and the Stratford and Shaw Festivals.



1. Any young artist between the ages of 13-19 is invited to register and submit an audition video.

2. 100 performers and non-performing artists will be invited to join our free six-weekend training intensive in the Fall/Winter of 2021. In groups of 10, the participants will create a brand new musical theatre song and video presentation under the guidance of top Canadian Directors, Composers and Designers.

*PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to share the enriching qualities of the theatre with a wider cross-section of young people, we are actively seeking a balance of performing and non-performing artists (writers, visual artists, poets, designers, filmmakers, stage managers, and any non-performing discipline we may have missed).
