Melissa McIntyre in Jump, Jive & Wail at Oh Canada Eh?

Uploaded by OhCanadaEhNiagara

Last winter Melissa performed in Jump, Jive, & Wail at Oh Canada Eh? Just as a refresher, here's a snippet of an interview she did last February about the show:
... Jump, Jive & Wail 2 debuted in 2004 and was another made-in-Niagara hit. The story takes us back to the first show's magical diner, which is slated for demolition much to the chagrin of its longtime customers. But another fateful nickel in the jukebox brings the songs — and memories — flooding back.

Reaching past the '50s, there's a Motown medley, a taste of the psychedelic era, and late '60s rock. It all leads to Don McLean's American Pie — the day the music died.

Niagara actress Melissa McIntyre is back for her fifth straight show at Oh Canada Eh, including Jump, Jive & Jingle.

"I love the music," she says. "This one especially, the music and dancing is really amazing. I'm so excited for my family to come and see it."

The former star of Degrassi: The Next Generation had to do some homework, however.

"The one I had to YouTube and research the most was Cher," she says.

Much thanks to NoBoundries13 for posting this in the Angsty Artists thread at the Degrassi Board at Fan Forum. I never thought a video of Mel's performance would make it onto YouTube. Great to see her again!!!

Jake Epstein to Appear in Ross Petty's Beauty and the Beast


Ross Petty Productions presents
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, The Savagely Silly Family Musical!

Starring Jake Epstein, Eddie Glen, Melissa O'Neil, Ross Petty, Jake Simons

Celebrating 15 years of Fractured Fairy Tales, Ross Petty Productions presents their premiere production of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, The Savagely Silly Family Musical, at Toronto's Elgin Theatre this winter.

Don't look for dancing candlesticks or singing clocks, they have been unceremoniously cast aside by animal pop stars as magically created by the evil Barnum von Cowell. Shy Prince Edgar enters into a Faustian deal with Barnum and inadvertently becomes the Beasty Boy of the title. Our Beauty is the apple of Edgar's eye and even she cannot escape the malevolent spell of von Cowell. Is there no stopping this dastardly devil?

Melissa O'Neil, Canadian Idol winner from 2005, wears the mantle of Beauty with incredible grace, and a rock solid voice - she's a major Canadian talent whose theatrical career is just taking flight.

Jake Epstein who burned up the Elgin stage in 2008 as Cinderella's Prince, returns as the hirsute hero. Jake became a household name from his years of playing Craig on CTV's Degrassi, the Next Generation. Most recently, Jake starred in the U.S. stage tour of the coming of age musical Spring Awakening.
