A Living History of the Regent Park Revitalization
The Journey is a spirited musical based on the story of three young people living in the Regent Park neighbourhood. Be electrified and transformed by this unique performance presented at Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park.
Using a powerful combination of spoken word, dramatic scenes, music and dance, The Journey highlights moments in Regent Park’s nearly 70-year history through the eyes of local residents.
Not only is the show inspired by the real-life stories of Regent Park residents, it also features award-winning Regent Park spoken word artists Trevlyn Kay and Britta B, with R&B singer-songwriter Steve Harmony, Regent Park School of Music graduate Stacy Darko and Dixon Hall Music School alumnus Thompson Egbo-Egbo.
Joining these local talents on-stage is the electrifying, award-winning, world-class performer Jackie Richardson (‘The Nina Project,’ ‘Adventures of a Black Girl in Search of God’), in addition to vocalist, actor and musician Jeremiah Sparks (Mufasa in ‘The Lion King,’ and star of world renowned show ‘Drum’) and songstress/actress Alana Bridgewater (Dragon in the stage production of ‘Shrek’ and Motormouth in the Broadway hit ‘Hairspray’ at the Charlottetown Festival). The Journey will tug at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more.
Funds raised by The Journey support capital improvements, operations and youth arts programming at the Daniels Spectrum cultural hub located in the heart of the Regent Park Community.
