This Land, Our Music

 

Review


Edmonton Music Theatre showcases the students of Opus Academy as they perform a medley of Canadian songs celebrating our country’s 150th birthday. Director Randy Mueller leads a cast of young aspiring performers with choreographed dance routines, intermittent with audience participation from a few of the children’s parents. The children participating sing Canadian classics such as: "Log Driver’s Waltz," "Hanky Panky," and "The Hockey song"—intermixed with informal Canadian trivia formatted somewhat like Jeopardy. The singers were young and the musical trope certainly showcases developing talents, but the routine was unpolished and lacked any sense of urgency. Had the concert been a free performance in an outdoor venue I would recommend seeing it in passing, but for paying fringe guests I would recommend finding your theatre fix elsewhere.

    My daughter and I went to see this show yesterday and we loved it! The music was a collection of Canadian classics that all the parents and adults in the audience seemed to know and enjoy! The singing was, for the most part, amazing, and the youth onstage were very talented. Overall, it was a great show and very enjoyable for all!
