“We have songs the audience will know and love, plus a few surprises,“ said Angela Broadley, Theatre Ancaster’s resident spring show choreographer. “Our singers and dancers are top-notch and versatile, which is really important as we hit disco, country, rock, lyric and hip hop.”
In addition to her role as choreographer, Broadley will be singing and dancing in the show. Carissa Bowerman, Jenn Cooper, Michele Greenway, and Danielle Pietra round out the talented dance corps.
Made in Canada is directed by Allison Osterman, with vocal direction by Ralf Hakenberg and musical direction by Colin Lapsley. Sam Frisk looks after the concert lighting while Al Croxall creates visuals behind the set constructed by Bob Penny and his team.
