Season Singers

sequoiaThe Season Singers is a children’s creative performance troupe founded in the winter of 1998 with the intention to create opportunities for children to come together in song, dance and performance. The Season Singers (7 to 12 years of age) named themselves with a democratic vote and continue to "sing the seasons” as they roll by.

 

Under the Artistic Direction of Sue Smith, and in partnership with Barbara Bryce, the Season Singers grew from a small choir to a performing arts troupe which now creates and presents original musicals. To date, 14 theme-based plays using popular song to flesh out the stories have been produced on themes from Voyageurs to Whales, Enchanted Forests to Rocket Ships, Magic Carpets to Snowmen and more.  As well, nineoriginal musicals have been premiered by the Season Singers: "A Little Bit of Thunder” (2008), "The Land of Hue” (2009), "Hullaballoo at the Grand Old Tree" (2010), "Who Put Out the Lights?" (2011), "Oh Little Planet (2012),  "When Mermaids Sing" (2013) and "Home Is Where Your Honey Is" (2014), "School For Stars" (2015) and "Quest For the Rainbow" (2016).

 

 

 

The Season Singers team includes Designer/Co-Writer, Barbara Jean Bryce, Director/Co-Writer, Augusta Supple, Playwright and Director, Singer/Musician/Teacher Shannon Kingsbury, Lighting Director, Brian Pickles, and a host of Season Singers Mentors - teenagers who have a history with Season Singers and return to the program as mentors for the children - working as stage crew, pianists, rehearsal coaches, choreographers, photographers, percussionists, cookie bakers, writers, designers,  cameo performers and more.

 

The Season Singers operates on a sessional basis, rehearsing and developing a show during a one month period and culminating in live performances. The program is fast, exciting and rewarding.
