The Journey Continues…

With the dawn of a new decade, The Journey Continues features a refreshed storyline that dives deeper into exploring what it means to return to a home much different than when you left it and in the midst of such a significant transformation.

Brought to life by talented young artists from the Regent Park community sharing the stage with world-class Canadian performers, this ever evolving production welcomes award-winning theatre producer Luke Reece as Creative Director and the return of Henry Heillig as Musical Director.

The revamped script reaches new heights thanks to a dynamic writing team that includes talented poet Trevlyn Kennedy, Luke Reece, Mitchell Cohen, Heela Omarkhail, and members of the Regent Park Community.

The Journey Studio

When you buy tickets for The Journey Continues, you are helping to support youth arts education through The Journey Studio, a free arts education training program for youth ages 15-24 from in and around Regent Park, who are interested in learning more about the performance arts.

Participants receive mentorship from pros and peers, as well as resources and support necessary to identify an educational or career path in the arts. Some participants will appear as part of the youth ensemble cast in The Journey Continues stage performances!
