The Next Wave Festival of New Musicals
The Centre for Education and Theatre in Montreal (CETM) is pleased to announce the 5th anniversary edition of the Next Wave Festival of New Musicals. To celebrate this milestone, CETM has planned a series of exciting and varied cultural offerings. The festival will take place in August (from the 3rd to 24th) and is designed to delight audiences and increase visibility for our local performing artists.
In collaboration with the Ville-Marie borough, as well as Espace Libre and the Maison de la Culture Frontenac, CETM promises innovative new programming. There is something to satisfy every taste and age group.
To reach this goal, we will present works in both English and French, including a new French adaptation of The Prince and the Pauper (straight from the Midtown International Theatre Festival in New York), a special concert adaptation of the first South Park movie, a review of classic musical theatre songs, and a brand-new musical by Theatre Exaltemps. In addition, Summer Spotlight will bring musical theatre to the outdoors along Ontario Street.
During the festival, CETM will also welcome Montreal-born Broadway producer Adam Blanshay. He is one of the driving forces behind such current hits as Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar. At our own CETM Studio, Adam will talk about his career, and the often-misunderstood world of producing. A question and answer period will complete the presentation.
CETM looks forward to seeing you at the festival. It’s a special summer activity not to be missed!
