The Theory of Relativity event details


The Theory of Relativity is a joyous and moving musical about our surprisingly interconnected lives. Created by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill, the show presents a seemingly unrelated collection of songs, scenes and monologues and introduces a diverse array of characters.  Whether you're allergic to cats, in love for the first or tenth time, a child of divorce, a germaphobe or simply a unique individual, The Theory of Relativity celebrates the inevitability and the wonder of human connection. 


This production at Ferris State University was rehearsed and recorded in strict adherence to Covid-19 safety protocols. Rehearsals were held remotely from the cast and crew’s individual spaces, and under sanctioned procedures.  Sound and video were recorded individually by the cast in their own homes and residence hall rooms. Through use of green screens, creative video editing and post production sound editing, the actors interact and sing together on screen as if they were in the same space and on location.

 The Theory of Relativity" was developed at:
The Canadian Music Theatre Project, Sheridan College, Oakville, Ontario, Canada

 Streaming is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
