Frog Prince: The Musical
Book by Charlotte Nixon,  Music and Lyrics by Stefanie Barnfather

SideNote Theatre's first foray into original work was our TYA twist on a classic, Frog Prince: The Musical. 

We wrote and workshopped this production over eight months, culminating in two local library performances to try out the material for audiences. It was a success!

There is much more in the works for this show. Keep checking back for details.

Moon Legends

SideNote Theatre wrote this piece as a virtual theatre production in collaboration with DIY Theatre in March 2020. Based on the Greek legend of Selene and Endymion, this new musical explores love, power and passion and the complications that arise when you follow your heart.

Nutty C and the Perfect Tree
Book by Charlotte Nixon, Music and Lyrics by Stefanie Barnfather

Nixon and Barnfather, together again! This animated one-act, family friendly holiday musical was rapidly adapted to be able to be produced during the height of COVID-19 in the summer of 2020. With a condensed team and cast, and animator, Jeff Eisen, SideNote turned this family story of Barnfather's into a true virtual theatre experience. Rehearsed, recorded, produced, and shared safely and with the support of Evergreen Community Spaces, NUTTY C was a holiday virtual hit with local and international audiences alike! Plus, our SideNote festive toque campaign raised $400 for the YWCA in Calgary, so we all could give a little extra to the community this season.
