We look forward to welcoming our patrons back with this truly wonderful revue filled with top-notch local talent and enjoy an awesome night out at the theatre again. Theatre is alive again Thunder Bay! 

All Together Now! features songs from MTI’s beloved catalog of musicals including Annie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Come From Away, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Guys and Dolls, Hairspray, Mamma Mia!, Matilda, Once on This Island, Rent, Waitress and many more!

MTI’s President and CEO, Drew Cohen stated, “MTI’s All Together Now! is about bringing people back to the theatre, whether as audience members or cast, crew and musicians. The revue features songs from the world’s most iconic musicals, so there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Our goal with this worldwide event is for organizations to provide hope, inspiration and excitement to their communities through the transformative power of musical theatre.
