Theatre Aquarius is thrilled to announce that the special performance of Behind the Scenes of The Hereafter, a New Musical, with Amy Sky and Friends on October 30, 2021 is sold out. The performance is a special thank you to frontline workers for their hard work to save lives and the considerable sacrifices they continue to make to keep people safe during the pandemic.
“We are overwhelmed by the tremendous response from healthcare workers and first responders. The performance sold out in just over 24 hours,” said Mary Francis Moore, Artistic Director of Theatre Aquarius.
The October 30 performance of Behind the Scenes of The Hereafter is the first since Theatre Aquarius’s unprecedented 18-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are thrilled to welcome Amy Sky and this amazing group of actors to play on our stage,” said Mary Francis Moore, Artistic Director, Theatre Aquarius. “The last 18-months have been challenging for everyone. It will be wonderful to once again experience the joy of live performance together.”
The evening will provide a rare look into the creative process behind musical theatre.
Award-winning creators, Amy Sky, Steven MacKinnon and Annabel Fitzsimmons, and a stellar cast will present the first glimpse of a magical new musical, The Hereafter. The evening includes excerpts featuring some of Canada’s top musical theatre talent, including: Kelly Holiff (UNCOVERED), Robert Markus (Dear Evan Hansen), and a cameo by singer-songwriter Marc Jordan.
The Hereafter presents a powerful, emotional world as Charlie, a young composer on the brink of her career breakthrough, struggles to move on after the loss of her husband. When she believes he is still with her, love blurs the lines between life and death, reality and imagination, turning the world as she knows it upside down.
To top off the night, the audience will be treated to a special performance by Amy, and a unique group reading demonstration by renowned Psychic Medium Jaye Mckenzie, who has also been a consultant to the show’s writers.
“The health and safety of our audience, artists, volunteers and staff is our top priority,” said Lorna Zaremba, Executive Director of Theatre Aquarius. “We want your experience to be safe and comfortable.”
In addition to providing proof of full vaccination, audience members will be required to wear masks throughout the performance.
