Musical Tokens is an online platform created to celebrate and empower womxn of colour in the Canadian musical theatre industry. Our goal is to highlight, educate, and uplift a wide variety of talent on and off the stage. Co-founded by Masini McDermott and Tara Jackson, we are inspired by the medley of talented womxn that are often labeled as tokens in Canadian musical theatre. The need for space in this community is vast. Musical Tokens is a place to network, learn, and support these remarkable artists. Our website features a variety of pages such as: general resources, articles, avenues of education, Tokens In Theatre, and of course, our Golden Tokens. We also host a space called The Green Room that features our YouTube channel, Musical Tokens. We discuss a multitude of topics with BIPOC artists such as what we as a community face in the theatre industry. We are also on a multitude of social media platforms: Facebook (Musical Tokens), Instagram (@musicaltokens), and Twitter (@musicaltokens). Overall, our websiteRead More
