TOM THOMSON’S WAKE – An original folk musical, Featuring Shipyard Kitchen Party
An artist brought to life…by friends…by lovers…and the land he painted.
Two years after renowned painter Tom Thomson’s mysterious death, his friend, his mentor and his lover gather to share their memories of Algonquin Park’s most famous resident. But did any of them really know the man? Through their diverging songs and stories, a new portrait of the iconic Canadian artist emerges.
Featuring high-definition imagery of Tom Thomson and Group of 7 artworks, unforgettable characters and an original folk music score by Shipyard Kitchen Party (creators of the musical 100 Years From Now), this new Canadian musical is sure to engage and entertain audiences of all ages.
