Catch a Rising Star showcased the 3rd year Performance Critiques and the 2nd year Dance Critiques, as a true collaboration of creativity. As part of their curriculum, each student was assigned the task of creating a showcase for their singing and dancing talents. For Catch a Rising Star, the Directors have taken the best of the best and created this extraordinary unique show, full of diverse musical styles and dances. Providing a showcase for the talents of some of Canada's most promising performers has become a tradition with Sheridan’s Music Theatre Department.
Catch a Rising Star is a window on the remarkable process and exciting activities within the Music Theatre Department - the development not normally seen! See why Theatre Sheridan graduates are hired to appear in such Toronto productions as Ragtime, RSVP Broadway, Sunset Boulevard, Beauty and The Beast and many, many more.
