THE JOURNEY A LIVING HISTORY OF THE REGENT PARK REVITALIZATION (THE JOURNEY),

A musical production and fundraiser presented by Innocon and produced by Toronto Artscape Foundation and The Daniels Corporation, takes to the stage on November 7, 2018 (7:30PM) at Daniels Spectrum, a cultural hub in Regent Park (585 Dundas Street East), with a brand-new storyline.
THE JOURNEY gives youth performers the unique opportunity to gain and develop a deeper understanding of artistic skills through professionals in specific disciplines like voice, dance, and acting. Since 2015, young Regent Park resident Limees Rizeig was in the ensemble, this year THE JOURNEY welcomes her back in the starring role of Afiya. Limees illustrates exactly why this production matters. Inspired by true events, THE JOURNEY is written by Daniels’ President Mitchell Cohen, Co-Producer Heela Omarkhail, and Director Kate Fenton in collaboration with the Regent Park community and is under the musical direction of Henry Heillig.

 
Returning cast include world-class performers Jackie Richardson, Alana Bridgewater and Jeremiah Sparks, along with multi-talented local artists Trevlyn Kennedy, Jael Jones Cabey and Jahni Boodoo-Nelson.

 
THE JOURNEY 2018 musical tells the story of the impact of revitalization on the resilient tight-knit community of Regent Park.
