The sound of music is again filling the Jewish Community Centre this summer.

The sound of music is again filling the Jewish Community Centre this summer.

Sixty-seven talented and energetic young performers aged nine to 19 from around the province, some from as far as Williams Lake, are taking part in Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! this July.

Now in its 25th year, Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! is the creation of camp director Perry Ehrlich who has assembled an impressive faculty that includes musical directors Wendy Stuart and Diane Spears; choreographers Jason Franco, Anna Kuman, Meghan Anderssen and Keri Minty; director Chris McGregor; acting coach and improv specialist Amanda Testini; and set construction and production gurus Marina Munoz, Charlie Beaver and Brynna Dummond.

To help mark the silver anniversary, Ehrlich has written a new show called Shamilton which features over 30 songs from Broadway and movie musicals—from Waitress and Hamilton to A Star Is Born, Mary Poppins Returns and Candide and popular songs by Queen, Gloria Estefan and Sly and the Family Stone.

Popular TV station EH-B-C is hosting a cross-Canada contest. The first 10 people to call in will receive free tickets to see Hamilton—the city in Ontario. The winners will be accompanied by Dr. Graham Murphy, Jordan Field and Andrew Robb.

Ehrlich’s 25th anniversary script is a mini-history lesson about Hamilton, Ontario (with special thanks to the City of Hamilton and Tourism Hamilton for assisting him in his research). It also pays tribute to all things Canadian with a special Canadian Carpool Karaoke hosted by none other than James Corden.

Shamilton will be presented July 24 at 7:30 p.m. and July 25 at 1 and 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver, 950 West 41st Ave. in Vancouver. Tickets are $15.
