"One of the best qualities that we saw in Jacob is that as an artist he operates from a place of kindness and curiosity. He is a young professional who is dedicated and ambitious, but his innate love for the theatre comes through at the core of everything he does. It is his character and his true care for the work that makes him a pleasure to have on a project."
~ Mentors Lonny Price and Matt Cowart

"This production is an absolute must-see, and you don’t want to be the only one in the lunchroom with nothing to contribute because you missed it."
The cast and team behind The Louder We Get at Theatre Calgary got together to create this performance in isolation to celebrate PRIDE and in dedication to all the students who missed their prom and graduations in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
