The Show Must Go ON-line! The COVID-19 pandemic motivated a complete pivot of the Yellow Door Theatre Project's business model. Online classes and Zoomsicals were successfully initiated during the summer of 2020. The rehearsal studio in Virgil was then COVID-prepared to enable us to offer in-studio classes (dance, musical theatre and monologue and scene study), which began in September. Online auditions were offered for the fall performance company in August and a company of 15 young performers (ages 10 to 16) has been selected to rehearse and perform in a live (socially distanced) and livestream performance of a new adaptation of "Hansel & Gretel," written by Lezlie Wade, with music by Scott Christian. A concert version of "Hansel & Gretel" will be presented at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre Dec.10 and 11. Registration is still available for all classes. Class size is limited.
