BROCKVILLE – Once again, the St. Lawrence College Music Theatre – Performance program is proud to present their newest group of talented young performers in New Faces 2014, an annual show featuring an extravaganza of song and dance. For the first time, New Faces will have two performances – a matinee at 2:00pm and an evening performance at 8:00pm at the Brockville Arts Centre on Saturday, March 8.

The evening will feature the entire first year class who are eager to perform onstage at the Brockville Arts Centre. For many students, New Faces provides the opportunity to perform in front of a large audience for the first time.

“New Faces has been a pure joy to work on and the students have been true collaborators in this process. The performance will take the audience on a journey through many eras and styles of musical theatre, featuring such shows as Crazy For You, Carousel, Sweet Charity, We Will Rock You, and Mama Mia,” said Janet Venn Jackson and Patrick Burwell, the New Faces 2014 Directors. “We have all worked together very hard ‘Putting It Together’. Be prepared for a high energy, fast-paced romp with some well-loved favourites, and some exciting surprises as well.”

“It’s been really great working on New Faces under the careful guidance of Patrick and Janet; they know exactly what to do to produce a great show. There are some big things lined up that everyone in the audience will recognize and enjoy, like Big Spender and Mama Mia, and other memorable numbers,” said Brandon Timmerman, a first-year Music Theatre – Performance student who lives in Brockville and graduated from TISS before attending SLC. “The cast members are wonderful; we have students in the program from cities across Canada, including Vancouver, Yellowknife, and Calgary, and International students as well. I’m excited for the Brockville community to see the show and get to know each of the cast members and be entertained by their individual talents.”

Ticket prices are $20+HST for adults and $15+HST for students and are available from the Brockville Arts Centre at 613-342-7122 or www.brockvilleartscentre.com. Special St. Lawrence College student “rush tickets” to the performance of New Faces at 2:00pm or 8:00pm are available for only $10, taxes included.  Students can purchase a discounted ticket at the Brockville Arts Centre box office by presenting their St. Lawrence College student ID card.
