Musical Theatre will be instructed by Cher Metcalf. Cher has loved Musical Theatre since she was a little girl. An active member of all school shows, she continued that love into her adult years, teaching both music and drama at the Elementary and Secondary levels for 10 years. In Summer 2016, she had the opportunity to inspire future teachers through the Arts in the Bachelor of Ed. program at Tyndale University. For the past two years, Cher has been teaching kindergarten at River Oaks P.S., instilling a love for music in even the youngest learners. She has directed such shows as Leader of the Pack, Grease, Little Shop of Horrors, Alice in Wonderland and Willy Wonka, to name a few, and is currently working on a production of Annie. Cher has two young daughters who also share her passion for singing, acting and dancing. She is very excited to be joining the Muskoka Woods team and can't wait to make Musical Theatre magic with you!
