Call for Applications: MARQUEE

Hosted by The Musical Stage Company

MARQUEE is a free performing arts program that aims to enrich the lives of people connected to the themes, stories and songs of the musical BLACKOUT. 

We are seeking members of the LGBTQ2S+ community, newcomers to Canada, and/or survivors of cancer, and all of their intersections to participate in this year’s program. Participants ages 16+ are welcome to apply, and no previous experience in the arts is necessary! There are limited spots available.

MARQUEE offers a community of art-loving people a chance to connect with the performing arts in new ways, participate in art-making workshops with top Toronto artists, TTC fare and snacks, as well as an opportunity to make and discuss art in an affirming space.

Each year, MARQUEE workshops and activities are designed in alignment with that year’s production. Inspired by this year’s production of BLACKOUT, we encourage members of the LGBTQ2S+ community, newcomers to Canada, and/or survivors of cancer, and all of their intersections to apply for the program. These intersections may include: those who are Two-Spirit, transgender, non-binary, Indigenous, Black, People of Colour, people with mental illness, people with chronic illness, neurodiverse folks, people of all abilities, and/or have experiences of houselessness.

Participants can expect performing arts workshops, panel discussions, facilitated independent creation time, an opportunity to connect with fellow art-lovers and theatre professionals, personal presentations from the cast and creative team of BLACKOUT, and more!
