The Magic of The Musical: Season 3 Begins!

We’re pleased to announce the start of the third sea­son of our orig­i­nal series of The Mag­ic of The Musi­cal, where your host Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er takes a month­ly look at the world of musi­cal the­atre with songs, sto­ries and lore sur­round­ing some of our most pop­u­lar musicals.

Sat­ur­day, April 20 @ 2pm SLT/Pacific Time sees the first show of the sea­son:  Unex­pect­ed Broad­way. This show is now avail­able on Mix­cloud.

This episode fea­tures per­for­mances by actors and actress­es that you would not have expect­ed to find in a Broad­way musi­cal, but they were! In some cas­es we’ll fea­ture the pro­duc­tion, and in some the per­for­mance. Who knew that a quirky film actor start­ed out as a dancer for Liza Minel­li? Or that “the boy who lived” would appear in the Broad­way Revival of a 1961 Frank Loess­er musical?

Join our live audi­ence at Ceiluiradh Glen on Sat­ur­day at 2pm SLT — slurl: or tune in to Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio here on the web site, plug this URL into a net­work play­er: — or ask your smart speak­er to “Play Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio!”
