Show Tune Showdown
Presented by Tone Cluster - quite a queer choir
Show Tune Showdown™ is a popular musical theatre competition and game show—a unique blend of the best of Broadway and musical trivia similar to Name That Tune.
Three teams sing a selection of Broadway or off-Broadway show tunes in front of three celebrity judges, who score each team up to 10 points for each of two performances. For even more fun, each team strives for additional points in Showdown rounds, where the team that guesses a song from trivia clues performs without rehearsal and with just sheet music and lyrics. The judges award up to 10 points for each showdown performance. There's also an audience showdown round, where an audience member who guesses the song gets to perform it for points for their favourite team.
The teams are Orpheus Musical Theatre, Lost Baggage Musical Theatre, and Zucchini Productions. The judges are singer/songwriter Jeremy Fisher, CBC Radio’s Giacomo Panico and city councillor Ariel Troster. Throw in a performance by Tone Cluster, our emcee comedian Jesse Reynolds, and Show Tune Showdown™ has all the ingredients for an unforgettable show!
