Since 2012, River Run Centre has hosted MusicWorks|StageWorks, an annual youth mentorship program focused on the art of putting on a professional style show.
This year, we are moving the program online. We are still offering aspiring performers real life experience in concept development, production and performance techniques. With the twist that we are also providing insights into how to record performances at home that captivate audiences and highlight their abilities.
We have invited a group of young performers to present music, theatre, spoken word, dance, short film and comedy in new and interesting ways.
River Run Centre’s technical, programming and marketing staff, with support from special guest professional musicians, will guide the performers through the various aspects of building a successful show from start to finish. The participants will learn about performance planning, self-promotion, at-home recording practices, performance technique, and more.

Here’s what a past participant had to say about the program:
“MusicWorks|StageWorks is an incredibly important program to run in this community. When I helped out, I was amazed by the talent of the youth that were showcased. I learned so much about how to organize a professional style show and met some amazing youth in the process. One acapella group really astounded me. The power of youth is often underestimated, and think that this event demonstrates perfectly how important it is that we provide a platform for youth to shine. All we need is the opportunity to achieve greatness, and MusicWorks|StageWorks is that opportunity.”
