TOGETHER WE’RE UNLIMITED
A Benefit Concert in Support of Thyroid Cancer Research

 Toronto, August, 2016TOGETHER WE’RE UNLIMITED is a benefit concert in   celebration of Hope and Possibilities, with all proceeds designated to the Canadian Cancer Society in support of Thyroid Cancer Research.

Co-producer Jeff Gilburd, a long-time usher at the Toronto Centre for the Arts and Harbourfront Centre, was recently diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. He has come together with friends and members of Toronto’s arts community to put on a night of musical theatre to raise money to help eradicate this often-overlooked type of cancer.

The Concert will showcase twelve of Toronto’s and Canada’s leading musical theatre performers, who have appeared on stages around the world, including Stratford and Shaw Festivals, Mirvish, Dancap, and Broadway — Louise Pitre, Jeff Madden, Mark Cassius, Thom Allison, Ma-Anne Dionisio, Graham Scott Fleming, Vanessa Sears, Gabi Epstein, Kelly Holiff, Joe Matheson, Shawn Wright.  The show will be hosted by George Masswohl, and musical direction is by Jeannie Wyse.

According to Co-Producer Merle Garbe, “We are so delighted that these amazing performers have all donated their time and talents to help this great cause.  This benefit was Jeff Gilburd’s idea, and it is a real tribute to him and his huge heart that so many artists care about him and wish to honour him by appearing in this show. It is a labour of love for all of us.”

This event in the exceptional acoustically-excellent George Weston Recital Hall, has been made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Toronto Centre for the Arts and Dancap Productions. The evening will also include a Silent Auction. We are now counting on the support of the community at large.
