Meet Your Producers!
OttawaMusicals, led by Matt and Sarah Cassidy, is a professional theatre company committed to bringing high-quality family entertainment to Ottawa. With a legacy of annual family musicals in the style of pantomimes, OttawaMusicals has become a beloved tradition for families in the region.
After more than 20 years as Equity/ACTRA performers in Toronto, Matt and Sarah decided to embark on a bold journey. Nine years ago they relocated their young family to Sarah’s hometown of Ottawa to fulfill a dream: producing a panto. Drawing from their experience performing in renowned productions like Ross Petty Productions Family Musicals and The Stirling Festival Panto, the Cassidys recognized that this form of family entertainment was the perfect fit for this city.
Join us in spreading the joy beyond the stage! Throughout the run of our show, we will be hosting a food drive for HiJinx Community House. We invite patrons to contribute non-perishable food items to help make a meaningful impact in our community.
