Dixon Road

Hosted by The Musical Stage Company

A new Canadian musical with book, music and lyrics by Fatuma Adar. DIXON ROAD tells the story of a Somali family who immigrate to Canada in 1991 as the civil war begins to tear their homeland apart. They settle in Dixon Road, in a neighbourhood near Pearson airport that is still the heart of Toronto’s Somali community today.

Combining R&B, contemporary verse and traditional Somali melodies, DIXON ROAD is an exhilarating journey about dreams, displacement, and finding a new sense of home. Join The Musical Stage Company & Obsidian Theatre Company from June 3 – June 19 at the outdoor High Park Amphitheatre for one of this summer’s hottest musical events! Preview tickets to the first 8 shows (June 3 – June 8), are Pay-What-You-Wish starting at $5!
