Backstage Pass: Digital Series

Sunday Nights from January 30 to April 3

Following the success of Drayton Entertainment’s first digital offering We’ll Meet Again, comes a brand-new virtual series for theatre fans, Backstage Pass . Go behind-the-scenes with some amazing Canadian theatre artists in this exclusive series that gives audiences unique insight into the lives of the people behind the performances.

Hosted by Artistic Director Alex Mustakas, Backstage Pass features exciting performances and interviews with over 40 incredible artists - everyone from beloved veteran actors and the country’s leading stars, to up-and-coming young performers poised for success. Combining compelling renditions of some of the artists’ favourite songs and scenes with funny and poignant personal stories, this series pulls back the curtain on what it’s like to work in live theatre … where anything can happen. To add to the fun, each episode features one of the finalists chosen in The Great Community Talent Search. Plus, Neil Aitchison brings a Smile of the Day as the loveable mountie Constable Archibald F. Inkster, and funnyman Wade Lynch makes a comic royal appearance.
