Professional Associates

In light of their ties to the professional film, television, and theatre community in Toronto, Wexford faculty members arrange workshops for their students conducted by some of Toronto’s leading artists. This can only help to provide students the strongest background possible.

These ties to the professional community have presented opportunities to some talented Wexford students to work in film, television, musical theatre and radio jingles. Wexford has established fantastic relationships between our Music Theatre students and the Hospital for Sick Children’s Telethon produced by CFTO. We were invited back for a seventh year in 1997. In 1993 we had four “spots” on the telethon, including the final number which we shared with CoIm Wilkinson (The Phantom) and Michael Burgess (Les Miz, Man of La Mancha). Music Theatre students also performed in a video with Donny Osmond, (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat) and in 1994 shared the stage with Micheal Bell, (Showboat) now on Broadway.

In addition, the students have performed live both on CBC and TSN networks, live on stage at the New Yorker Theatre, recorded the original song “Keep the Spirit Alive” for the special Olympics, performed at the Celebrity Sports Auction, performed with Robert Pilon at Casa Loma for CEO’s from all over the world including the President of Sony, Jane Fonda and Ted Turner; along with the Leahy’s and Andre Philipe Gagnon; Wexford Music Theatre entertained 5,000 representatives from all over North America at the Metro Convention Centre and most recently appeared along with the cast of Rent at Mel and Marilyn Lastman’s Inaugural Ball.
