Jackie Richardson Adds Soul to the STARS Gala

Toronto, October 13, 2009 ’Äě Mixed Company Theatre is delighted to announce that Jackie Richardson will be performing at the 1st Annual STARS Awards Gala, Mixed Company Theatre’Äôs 25th Anniversary celebration.

One of Canada's foremost singers of gospel, blues and jazz, Richardson has a powerful and supple voice and a warm, vibrant stage presence. The music of Jackie Richardson is an experience of soul, a profoundly personal synthesis of the remarkable gospel, blues and jazz women she has embodied on stage and screen. A veteran of the stage and the small and large screens, Jackie Richardson forged a very successful acting career with roles in "No! No! Nanette Anything Goes"; "Hello Dolly!" and ’ÄúRaisin in the Sun". She became well known for her part in "Ain't Misbehaving", which earned her a Dora Award.

Richardson has worked with Mixed Company Artistic Director, Simon Malbogat, and Mixed Company is excited to partner with her for the 1st Annual STARS Awards Gala.

Enhanced by artistic performances, a silent auction, award ceremony and cocktail reception, celebrating Mixed Company Theatre’Äôs 25 years of positive change will be an evening to remember.
