Mansfield Entertainment is bringing the music of legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber to Oshawa’s Regent Theatre tonight for an 8 p.m. showing.

For more than half a century, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music has dazzled audiences. He has composed 13 musicals, a song cycle, a set of variations, two film scores, and a Latin requiem mass. Several of his songs have been widely recorded and were hits outside of their parent musicals, notably ‘The Music of the Night’ and ‘All I Ask of You’ from The Phantom of the Opera, ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’ from Jesus Christ Superstar, ‘Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina’ from Evita, ‘Any Dream Will Do’ from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and ‘Memory’ from Cats.

In celebration of Lloyd-Webber’s music, Zac Mansfield has put together a new and improved revue show – ‘Til I Hear You Sing: The music of Andrew Lloyd Webber – featuring your favourite songs plus obscure gems from some of the lesser-known shows.

Scaled back to feature stunning vocalists (Amanda Bradley, Craig Maguire and Enya Watson) and backed by the hauntingly intimate accompaniment of the piano (Sam Moffatt), with anecdotal narrations to enhance your experience and admiration of the Lord Lloyd Webber’s music, this is a show you don’t want to miss.

A family affair, the show is created and produced by Zac Mansfield, with James Mansfield as the Executive Director and Joan Mansfield as the Resident Director. Kit Bauldry will serve as Stage Manager.

The running time for the show is 50 minutes for the first set and 45 minutes for the second set, sandwiched around a 15 minute intermission.

For tickets to ‘Til I Hear You Sing go here.

The show will be at Brantford’s Sanderson Centre November 26 and the Opera House in Orillia November 27.

For rock ‘n roll fans, the Regent Theatre has some good new this month with A Tribute to Rush featuring My Favourite Headache November 11; Dreamer – the Supertramp Experience November 12; and Tommy Youngsteen performing Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run on November 25.
