To prioritize the safety of the cast, creative team, audiences and community members, we have made the difficult decision to postpone The Journey until June 2021.
Our talented cast and creative team, under the guidance of Director Luke Reece, look forward to putting on a spectacular show next year.
While we wait for The Journey to return in June 2021, the community continues to use this time to create and express themselves through the arts. Director of The Journey and award-winning spoken word poet, Luke Reece, has a new work to express the challenges and opportunities we are all facing during these times – click here to watch!
We wish you a healthy and safe remainder of 2020 and look forward to sharing more news about The Journey as we near our June 2021 production dates!
The Journey Continues…
As the transformation of Regent Park continues to unfold, The Journey takes a big step toward representing the voices of the community like never before. With a refreshed storyline, this spirited musical dives deeper into exploring what it means to return to a home much different than when you left it, as well as to move into a community in the midst of such a significant transformation.
With the dawn of a new decade, The Journey 2020 welcomes award-winning theatre producer Luke Reece as Creative Director and the return of Henry Heillig as Musical Director.
The Journey is brought to life by talented young artists from the Regent Park community sharing the stage with world-class Canadian performers including Jackie Richardson and Jeremiah Sparks.
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.
Sponsorship of The Journey directly supports youth arts programming, operations and capital improvements at Daniels Spectrum, a community cultural hub in the heart of Regent Park.
