Centre Stage Productions has been entertaining the Burlington area for the past twenty five years. An extension of Burlington Central High School’s internationally award-winning Central Company, this non-profit organization consists entirely of local theatre artists, each dedicated to producing high quality, affordable entertainment for the whole Burlington community for the past sixteen years. Carrying on the Central Company tradition of quality, Centre Stage has mounted many successful productions in recent years, including “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Beauty and the Beast“, “The World Goes ‘Round”, “Girls in the Gang”, “You Must Remember This”, and the highly successful productions of the musical revues “You Stole My Heart, Now Give It Back!”, “Smokey Joe’s Café”, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”, “You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet”, and “Clue the Musical”. Centre Stage has also partnered with Cassiopeia Catering and Café in Reimer’s Princess Park, producing tremendously successful dinner theatre presentations of both “The All Night Strut” and “Into the Woods,” and worked in conjunction with the Halton Coalition for Social Justice to develop and perform educational human rights presentations. In May, 2000, Centre Stage represented the province of Ontario at Liverpool’s International Theatre Festival with their production of “a play about the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo.”
Some of these individuals have as many as 20 years of training; many of them are planning or beginning careers in the Canadian performance or communications industry. All of them have won awards in their own right. In past years, for instance, the creative staff of Centre Stage Productions have won over 50 awards in the prestigious Sears Drama Festival, earning recognition in areas ranging from individual performance, choreography, and set design, to music, technical achievement, and playwriting. They are a skilled, expert group of theatre workers who have themselves developed through the arts, and who seek to give back to their community in the form of quality theatrical entertainment.
Burlington Central High School, Centre Stage’s parent organization and the training ground for much of its personnel, has had a long tradition of developing young people through the performing arts. The establishment of high expectations, the respect for the audience, the concern for quality performance, and the emphasis on team work and commitment, have all combined to produce blockbuster productions of: “A Chorus Line”, “West Side Story”, “Into the Woods”, “Cabaret”, “Evita”, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, “Blood Brothers”, “Tommy”, “Godspell”, “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Footloose”. In the process, the B.C.H.S. program has become one of the most renowned and respected in Southwestern Ontario. As graduates of this program, members of Centre Stage Productions carry on and expand its traditions with continued musical theatre productions such as this summer’s “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.”
