Kennedy House Youth Services Inc. is excited to present, Gene Kelly: The Legacy an Evening with Patricia Ward Kelly. Gene Kelly was a legendary dancer, director and choreographer. His work continues to be an inspiration to artists and athletes around the world. His vision and artistry, in such films as An American in Paris and Singin’ In The Rain have delighted and captivated us, yet we know little about him. During this unique evening, Patricia Ward Kelly—his widow and biographer—shares intimate stories of her husband’s life and career.
Ms. Kelly joins us for her Canadian Premiere of Gene Kelly: The Legacy after a sold out run in Europe and across the U.S. Kelly’s compelling presentation, which will take place March 23, 2017 at 8pm at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto, combines rare and familiar film clips, previously unreleased audio recordings, personal memorabilia, and insights culled from her hours of interviews and conversations with her husband. This special live program makes for a remarkable experience praised as “a real treat” by Variety and hailed as “endearingly entertaining” by the Hollywood Reporter.
This exciting show is sponsored by Investors Group and will support the Kennedy House Youth Shelter. This homeless shelter is located in East Toronto and provides shelter and support to homeless youth between the ages of 16-24 who have complex needs. The shelter has a 33 bed capacity and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The shelter encourages young people to work on goals they have identified for themselves and guides them in securing long-term housing, employment and education. The program respects the uniqueness of each individual and works to increase their capacity to achieve success, health and independence while overcoming systemic and personal barriers. Thanks to the incredible support from Investors Group, all proceeds from this event will help youth in our city to battle homelessness. By attending Gene Kelly: The Legacy an Evening with Patricia Ward Kelly, you will be helping to change lives forever.
