Directed by Alisa Palmer and hosted by Ann-Marie MacDonald, DRIVEN TO SCORE brings together an incredible lineup of Theatre 20 Founding Artists - Louise Pitre (Mamma Mia!), Ma-Anne Dionisio (Miss Saigon) and David Keeley (Rock of Ages) - joined by Sterling Jarvis, Alana Bridgewater and Yvan Pednault, six incomparable Canadian musical actors, for one night only at the Panasonic Theatre. Special appearances by Adam Brazier and the Theatre 20 Emerging Artist Choir.
