Marathon of Hope: The Musical debuts at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse
Celebrating the incredible life of Canadian hero, Terry Fox, Marathon of Hope: The Musical opens on October 5 at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse and runs through October 30, 2016. After losing his leg to cancer, Terry ran across Canada to raise money for cancer research and captured the heart of the nation in the process. After 143 days, Terry was forced to end his run when his cancer returned. He passed away on June 28, 1981 at 22 years of age. Developed in collaboration with the family of Terry Fox and The Terry Fox Foundation, Marathon of Hope was workshopped through Sheridan’s Canadian Music Theatre Project in 2013 and 2014. The production features music and lyrics by Sheridan alumnus John Connolly, with choreography by fellow graduate David Connolly.
