On Sunday, April 2nd, The Segal Centre is holding its eighth annual “You Be the Star” Musical Fundraiser in support of the Segal Centre. Every year, this event raises over $50,000 towards youth arts education, support for emerging artists and programming development.
This year over 30 volunteer performers of all ages will be bringing some of the most popular one-hit wonders back to the spotlight, from “Love Shack” to “Black Velvet” and every “MmmBop” in-between. Co-chaired by Jordana Kujavsky and Benjamin Warner, this multimedia musical is directed by Trevor Barrette (Mixtape, To Be, and Captain Aurora: A Superhero Musical), musically directed by Nick Burgess (Funny Girl, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz: The Musical, and Guys and Dolls) and choreographed by Jonathan Patterson (The Producers: A New Mel Brooks Musical in Yiddish, Last Night at the Gayety, and West Side Story).
