On Thursday, November 1st, 2018, the 2nd Annual Supporting Cast concert is scheduled at Trinity St. Paul’s Centre for Faith, Justice and the Arts in Toronto. Last year we honoured Canada’s Queen of Soul, Gospel and The Blues, the incomparable Jackie Richardson. This year we plan on honouring 3 notable Canadian philanthropic artists. Shirley Douglas, well-known actress and activist, Diane Dupuy, founder of Famous People Players, and David Warrack, esteemed composer and musical director.
Hosted by Dini Petty, this year, again under the direction of Mark Camilleri, there will be memorable performances from the internationally renowned singer-songwriter Marc Jordan, Broadway star of Mamma Mia, Louise Pitre, Canada's Queen of soul, gospel and the blues Jackie Richardson, and acclaimed singer-songwriter Amy Sky, along with the multi-talented Patti Jannetta, rising Canadian star Jordan John, tap dancer extraordinaire Travis Knights, and mime artist/comedian Paul Wildbaum.
Here’s what some audience members had to say about at last year’s concert:
“Wow! My wife, my mother-in-law and I attended last night. What a show! All three of us said it was AMAZING! My wife said it was the best show she had seen since attending Les Mis in London in 1995...that's saying a lot. Well....everyone on stage was fantastic but Jackie blew us away. What a voice.....my gawd! We are already looking forward to next year's venue. This time we will be inviting all of our friends to join us.” David Velikonja, Guelph, ON
