Art4Arts Charity Auction and Salon
This auction will raise resources to help Eclipse Theatre Company stage "Call It Love" and the New Musical Works Festival in Toronto in the summer of 2021.
About Eclipse Theatre Company
Eclipse Theatre Company (ETC) has an artistic mission of creating new musical theatre works, telling stories in bright and imaginative ways. In 2018 the Eclipse Theatre Company had success with its re-entry into the Toronto scene, its first lab and with mounting Salons. In 2019 the Company had signal successes with Salons, six Dora nominations and one win for its staging in the Old Don Jail of a sold-out Kiss of a Spider Woman, and a co-pro success at Crow’s Theatre with Ghost Quartet. In 2020 the Old Jam Factory hosted Sunday in the Park With George, another well reviewed and sold out run. These efforts garnered eleven Dora nominations for 2020.
The Company is now working hard to mount a show about women and their place in modern families and relationships by Chilina Kennedy and Eric Holmes - "Call It Love" - scheduled for Toronto in summer 2021, and the opening of a New Musical Works Festival in the fall 2021.
