Bio: Amy Holden is thrilled to be joining the Jingle Belles in “Twas The Cabaret Before Christmas”! She is a proud graduate of St. Clair College’s Musical Theatre Performance program (2016) and has been working as an actor/singer in Toronto and across Canada ever since. A few of her favourite credits include Mother Superior in Sister Act (The LOT), Dorothy in 42nd Street (Capitol Theatre) and Amy March in Little Women (MToT). Up next, Amy will be playing Lily St. Regis in Annie (Randolph Theatre). 

What made you want to be involved in the cabaret?

The opportunity to perform alongside two of my best friends and band mates as The Jingle Belles is pretty darn cool. PLUS, I love all things Christmas and new collaborations.

What’s your favourite part of the holiday season?

I really do love all things Christmas. Although, I would have to say receiving gifts and eating Christmas treats take first place……

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

There is no way I could choose just one!! But among my favourites are Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and The Christmas Song.

Why should everyone come see the show?

Because WHO doesn’t love a little lighthearted Christmas spirit???

Bygone Theatre was founded as a collective in October of 2012, and became an incorporated not-for-profit company in October of 2015. Our mandate is to produce theatre written or set in the early 20th century, focusing on historical aspects in design and incorporating a classic cinema aesthetic. ​ In 2019 Bygone Theatre was nominated for 14 Broadway World Toronto Awards, including Best Community Theatre and Best Play (Equity). We took home a total of 5 awards, 4 of which were for The Rear Window, including Best Direction of a Play (Equity); Best Original Lighting Design; Best Leading Actor (Play, Equity); and Best Featured Actress (Play, Equity). We took a hiatus our 2020/21 season because of the COVID19 pandemic, and used that time to develop our charitable initiatives. In August of 2021 we were nominated for the Toronto Star Readers' Choice Award for Best Live Theatre. Part of our mission involves inclusion and accessibility, and we strive to allow artists of all backgrounds and levels of experience the chance to have hands-on experience in whatever capacity they are most interested in; this has included youth outreach programs for high school students interested in production design, and acting opportunities for those who have never performed onstage.
