We are Morpheus Theatre’s youth and young adult musical group “Voices in Our Head” and we are looking for new members. Our mandate is to give young artists the opportunity to learn, create and perform in a supportive and encouraging environment. We meet 3 Friday evenings a month at Morpheus’ Rehearsal Centre in Parkdale.

Our repertoire includes a variety of musical styles — from musical theatre selections, to Top 40 Hits, classic rock anthems and more.  Our rehearsals focus both on learning the music as well as exploring characterization and staging the numbers.  Our season will culminate with a cabaret-style evening performance that will showcase the work of the group.
