From Winnipeg to Broadway and Back Again
An Intimate Evening of Stephen Sondheim 
with Scott Christian on piano

A one-night only fundraiser for zone41 theatre – the company that brought you the acclaimed production of Shaw's Village Wooing at last year's festival.

Star of CBC's Over the Rainbow, Shaw Festival's Ragtime and Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Broadway, Thom Allison takes us on an autobiographical journey through the music of Stephen Sondheim. Winnipeg audiences were wowed by his Aldolpho in MTC's The Drowsy Chaperone, Tom Collins in Rent and Reuben in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for Rainbow Stage. In 2001, Thom was invited to be a guest soloist for Sondheim himself at the World Leaders’ Salute to Stephen Sondheim.

Tickets: $41 (plus ticketing fee)
For advance tickets, call 204-942-6537 or email
or visit 174 Market Avenue, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Mon to Sat.

This is going to be a fabulous evening and the bar will be open post-show.
We can't wait to see you all on the 20th!

We are also hosting a 2 day Masterclass led by Thom at the RMTC's Mainstage Rehearsal Hall.  There are still a few participant spots left for his special take on song interpretation through text and a limited number of auditors will also be welcome.
Classes will be the afternoons of January 19 and 21.

From the company behind the sold-out Winnipeg premiere of Avenue Q

Sondheim's spellbinding, romantic and hilariously dark Tony Award-winning masterpiece.

When a baker and his wife learn they've been cursed, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell – swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack. Everyone's wishes are granted, but the consequences return to haunt them, with disastrous results.
