The Journey: Special FREE Community Presentation!

June 19, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


As Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood undergoes the most ambitious urban transformation in North America, art will dramatically imitate life on The Journey stage. Using a powerful combination of words, music and dance, The Journey documents Regent Park’s nearly 70-year history through the eyes of local residents. Not only is the show inspired by the real-life stories of Regent Park residents, it is being performed by artists and young people from the local community.

The Journey is written by Mitchell Cohen, President of The Daniels Corporation, in collaboration with members of the Regent Park community, with adaptation by Creative Director Anne-Marie Woods and musical direction by Henry Heillig.

The Journey will tug at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more.
