We wish to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is Treaty No. 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground and home of the First Nations, including both the treaty signatories – Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stony and Cree-Iroquois – as well as other Indigenous peoples, such as the Blackfoot and Métis, who occupied this land. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live, create and perform on this territory.
Edmonton Musical Theatre is going forward with classes  with limited in-person and on-line  activities.
Safey measures are in effect for social distancing, recommended singing restrictions and cleaning.
Dr. Dasha Goody was a well-known figure in the arts community in Edmonton. She passed away in 2001, after a half-century of work in the field of musical theatre. From her early days as a singer, to the founding of Orion Musical Theatre in the early 1950’s to the creation of the Edmonton Musical Theatre Society in 1977, Dr. Goody spent her career working with singers and dancers of all ages. Many of her students have gone on to successful professional careers, including the late Robert Goulet, Susan Gilmour, Tim Haur and Dan Chameroy.
The Foundation was established in 2004 to create a legacy to Dr. Goody’s memory and its Board of Directors believed there was no better way of honoring Dr. Goody than to create a lasting scholarship in her name.
