One of Toronto's leading theatre companies.
Acting Up Stage Company is one of the few organizations in Canada committed to developing new Canadian musicals.
NoteWorthy is a program designed to systematically advance the development of new Canadian musicals. After a national call-for-submissions, we select a group of playwrights and composers for a five part process:
- Composers and playwrights are matched to explore artistic collaboration.
- Two sets of collaborators move on to develop a dramatic concept.
- The collaborators with the most promising concept are commissioned to write the full musical.
- Actors, directors, musical directors, and designers work with the collaborators and workshop the musical.
- The musical has its world premiere on our Mainstage.
Alumni of NoteWorthy include:
- Chris Craddock
- Zachary Florence
