World Premiere


This event has been postponed. A future date will be announced in due course.

The All Sing “Here Lies Joy” has been postponed. A future date will be announced in due course. The spirit of the piece is one of celebrating our voices coming together in one huge public gathering to tap into the joy of singing. And while we wish it wasn’t so, now is not the time to hold massive gatherings. But there WILL be a time, and when that time comes, PROTOTYPE will be there to offer this incredible, uplifting, communal event. Until then, enjoy the rest of our safe live art offerings.

PROTOTYPE will kick off its 10th anniversary season with an exuberant cri de coeur, bringing communities together through what we know best – the voice. We have long missed the opera houses, black box theatres, and jazz clubs, but perhaps what we have missed most is singing – the joyous feeling of expressing one’s being through song.

The All Sing brings hundreds of people together to weave a vibrant tapestry of sound, poetic justice, and hope. From the voices who tread the boards of some of our most hallowed stages to those who tread the tiles of their shower, all are welcome in this ebullient celebration of connection, community, and our capacity for joy. Together we will craft an unforgettable moment and sing for a return to a more just, healthy, and music-filled life.
