To Ronnie, With Love, 2021



When you have a life like Ronnie's, you wouldn't wish for it to change at all. Almost Summer 2019. Graduation. Just before Ronnie takes a leap of faith by moving to the Big Apple to find herself, her chosen family rallies to throw her a surprise going away party. Inspired by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Company, the musical To Ronnie, With Love picks up on similar themes of love and societal pressure, but finds them in our youth, in our most vulnerable moments — among our most trusted loved ones — riding the line between relief and regret.

To Ronnie, With Love is one of 5 works that is part of the First Drafts series that reimagine, reconstitute, and reanimate the Western “musical theatre canon” in a way that acknowledges the truth of where we are now and where we hope to go. First Drafts is grounded in an urgency to make space for stories that must be told now and must continue to be prioritized in our art form.

We are releasing these works in a variety of media that reflect the hybrid delivery model of our work and learning in the past year. Four of the works have been recorded as podcast-style audio recordings, accompanied by production-style photos that showcase the costumes and sets that were designed and built for these works. The fifth production was rehearsed and presented fully online. Both a video recording and an audio recording of that piece are shared here.

Thank you to all our guest artists and staff for your support and dedication as we navigated this journey. Most importantly, thank you to our students — both from our Honours Bachelor of Music Theatre Performance Class of 2021 and from our Advanced Diploma in Technical Production for the Performing Arts Industry — for your hard work, perseverance and unrelenting commitment as First Drafts was brought to life.
