You do not have to be Shakespearean to appreciate Much Ado About Nothing, only a proud Bramptonian with a sense of humour. This show is totally worth the drive into Toronto.
“What people don’t understand is how it's such a sense of community. I’ve learned so much, not just about acting, but life. This is where I feel comfortable. I do not feel closer to anyone as I do here.”
The world of theatre may centre around the stage, but it can’t exist without set production and costume design. These are the visual statements made for the audience, thus allowing them to time travel and lose themselves in the actors' performance.
At the end of the day, it’s about putting on a great show. “It’s about giving the people, the audience, THE reason to come out,” reminds John. “This is a combined effort. We’re a bunch of entertainers and performers wanting to bring the people of Brampton out to see a show, to be entertained, to be taken away for a couple of hours to join us on this journey. THIS is what it’s all about.”
Now for the all-important, albeit cliché, question: do you hear the people sing? Yes, and they are marvelous! Come out and see Brampton Music Theatre's presentation of Les Miserables at Rose Theatre.
It is this single reason that makes Les Miserables equally effective with a minimum set; it is the spirit of the production that transcends to community theatre, and why Brampton Music Theatre is bringing it to Brampton.
