News (Edmonton): TOWTTB Closes Doors – Two ONE-WAY Tickets to Broadway

Edmonton’s leading semi-professional musical theatre company from 2006 to 2016

“The Board of Directors of Two ONE-WAY Tickets to Broadway Productions Society (TOWTTB), announce that this, our 10th season of producing Broadway’s best musicals, was unfortunately our last. It is somewhat fitting that our final production was one of the first and most successful shows we produced under the TOWTTB name, and our VIP Member voted winning show – RENT!

This has not been an easy decision, but was the only one that felt right based on our current situation. Over the past several years having to balance increased operating, venue rental and royalty costs while maintaining production value and affordable ticket prices, has been a struggle. As well, while the city is full of amazing talent, it is also a relatively small pool of people based on the number of organizations vying for said talent, and we have had major challenges securing key personnel to ensure the caliber of our productions is maintained. The final factor was the resignation of the driving force of this company, Artistic Director, Martin Galba. That further justified the Board’s decision to close doors, as we felt that the company could not continue without its anchor…without its heart and soul. Martin has dedicated his talent, time, passion and vision to this organization in so many ways. He was completely invested…and now after an amazing 10 seasons, has decided that it has been…just enough.

During our 10 seasons we have had the absolute honour and privilege to work with the most amazing, dedicated, talented, supportive group of actors, singers, dancers, musicians, directors, musical directors, designers, stage managers, assistant stage managers, builders, painters and everyone else behind-the-scenes…many of whom came back time and time again to grace our stages, wings, shops and booths. Thank you. Thank you for trusting us to give you a space to play, grow and make magic. If we could take the time to recognize you all individually, it would take us another 10 seasons…
