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


Performance Showcase

Do you enjoy show tunes? Do you prefer variety? Do you like hearing old favourites while learning new favourites at the same time? Then our Take-Off Performance Showcase will appeal to you!

The show features an eclectic collection of musical theatre solos with a few scenes and ensemble numbers mixed in. There are classic broadway hits like “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret, “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables and new favourites like “Burn” from Hamilton and “Times Are Hard for Dreamers” from Amélie. Ensemble numbers include “Side By Side” from Company and “You’re Goin’ Back To Jail” from Bonnie & Clyde.

Take-Off is LBMT’s new educational program aimed at bringing local musical theatre performers to the next level. Twelve participants have been partaking in weekly private lessons in musical theatre vocal performance and weekly group workshops and masterclasses in a variety of related subjects, such as acting, dance, audition etiquette, and blocking techniques. Now they are almost finished their program and getting ready to show YOU their development in the Take-Off Performance Showcase!

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Devised by Stephen Sondheim and Julia McKenzie | Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick

Putting It Together is a musical revue showcasing the songs of Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened…). Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with George, it celebrates Sondheim’s incomparable career in musical theatre.

Featuring nearly thirty Sondheim tunes, Putting It Together is performed by only five people who are thrown together at a party in a Manhattan penthouse. With a bit of imagination, the guests transform the apartment into the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest.

Evening Shows at 8:00pm | Bar and Doors Open at 7:00

Afternoon Shows at 2:00pm | Bar and Doors Open at 1:00
