Lost Baggage Musical Theatre

At LBMT, we believe that the theatre is for everyone. Our mandate is to diversify musical theatre performance in Ottawa and bring more musical theatre to the city’s east-end. We strive to create rehearsal and performance spaces that allow for individuals to freely create and participate in without fear of scrutiny or harassment.  

When you come to a Lost Baggage production, expect to leave the burdens of everyday life at the door and escape for a while. Lose your baggage at Lost Baggage.

Upcoming Shows & Events


Movie Musical Edition

A Quarantunes COMPETITION?!?! LBMT is hosting a fourth and final A Quarantunes Cabaret, but this time with a twist… Performers for this show have always been divided into two groups with two sets of performance coaches. This year they will form teams to battle it out with both solos and ensemble performances for the ultimate “Quarantunes”!

Each show will have a set of 3 judges, each representing a tripe threat of musical theatre: singing, dancing, and acting. Cast members will compete to have the top scoring solo number and top scoring team. The top scoring solo will win a $100 cash prize courtesy of Riverview School of Music. There will also be an audience choice award for best solo and best ensemble number.

Furthermore, this cabaret follows a new format – for the first time ever, there is no program order. The order will be chosen by the show host and the audience. Each night will be a new show and both performers and audience members won’t know what will happen next!

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse | Music by John Kander | Lyrics by Fred Ebb

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal.
