About us - Creating Original Works of Musical Theatre

We believe that musical theatre, as a medium, can carry impactful stories that move and provoke us unlike any other medium. As long-time students and performers of musical theatre, we set out to create new original works ourselves.

After meeting in their Master's program at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Cassie and Tyler have been long-time friends and collaborators. Having performed together many times in the past, during the pandemic Cassie and Tyler starting work on the book and music for Little Weaver (previously God Catcher), and along with Prickly Pear Productions and significant grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and Arts Council Malta, they co-produced a 10 actor, four week run of the show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2023. Further development of the show is slated for 2025.

Their current project is How Not to Kill a Plant, which is planned to debut at the Edmonton Fringe Festival in 2024.
