Connect with Canada’s immigration history in the very gateway that inspired the production Pier 21: The Musical. Refugees and immigrants flee Europe as war breaks out in 1939. After half a million soldiers depart from Pier 21 to fight in the Second World War, War Brides and a new generation of immigrants arrive to take their first steps on Canadian soil through the Pier.

Site-specific theatre at its best, Pier 21: The Musical is a Celtic and Swing flavoured musical packed with powerful vignettes and characters. Performances begin June 29 at 2:00 pm, and continue twice daily from June 30 to July 8, with the exception of July 3rd.

Pier 21: The Musical is presented by the Canadiana Musical Theatre Company. Book, Music and Lyrics are by Allen des Noyers. Allen would like to dedicate this tour to the memory of Danish immigrant, George Frislev, who arrived in Canada through Pier 21 in 1951.
