Songs to Make You Smile: A Virtual Encore

At 7:30pm, a live 2 minute countdown will start. If you do not see the countdown, refresh your device. When the countdown starts, you may then use your mobile device to cast the concert to your TV or Chromecast, as you would with any ordinary YouTube video.

Although it is a Live Premiere, you will still be able to rewind if you are running late or need a snack.

Our first online event - held Friday, April 3rd - brought together 54 artists and raised over $17,000 for our local theatre community. Hundreds tuned in live to watch and thousands have viewed it since. The May 23rd event will feature even MORE of your favorite Corridor artists and a line-up of songs and sketches that will have you grinning from ear to ear. 

If you are able, please consider making a $5 donation (or more!) to support your neighborhood theatres. Then, on the night of the show, head to the Facebook page of any participating theatre to access the live YouTube stream. If you make a donation, you'll be emailed a link directly on the day of the show!

All donations are fully tax-deductible and will be split evenly across participating organizations.  In exchange, you can watch the heartwarming, soul-stirring Virtual Encore!
