Eclipse commissioned 24 of Canada’s best songwriters to write a song about their experiences this past few years (2020-Present) and Artistic Director, Andrew Seok then took those songs and wove them together with story and script to create a funny, endearing, and powerful one-of-a-kind production.

This is a celebration of Canadian musical theater, and a reflection of our time through story and song ,” Andrew Seok (Artistic Director – Eclipse Theater Company)
