Motionball Marathon of Sport Event

The Motionball Marathon of Sport event will be held at The Hangar at Downsview.
They apparently have 84 teams of 10 competing in this day long sporting event where each team competes in 7 different sport stations throughout the day and each time is required to raise a minimum of $3k.
The beauty of the event is that they add 1 Special Olympic athlete per team.
The band Superfire are playing at 4 pm during their closing ceremonies for 15 minutes. They have invited all those who competed during this years Motionball Idol to come up on stage to perform the last few songs with them! This means we will have up to 6 DramaWay Performers potentially performing that day along with Jessica Rotolo who will be joining as well as the Winner of the Motionball Idol.
It is not a ticketed event, but you are welcome to swing by and check it out as the event has a great atmosphere with fun activations eveywhere; Djs spinning music and over 100 Special Olympic athletes in attendance. If you need further information it’s best you contact Paul Etherington at the number below as it’s not a DramaWay event, but we love to share info about wonderful events such as this.

Happy New Year & Thanks to all our Funders & Supporters!

DramaWay 016

Happy New Year All!

We hope this message finds you all well and rested after our Holiday Season. Are you as excited as this young lady is to get back into the groove of things? We hope so.

Well, as most of you have likely seen on our Social Media sites we were quite busy this Holiday season. Between launching and maintaining our  second year of our Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign and running our new Holiday Camp for Kerry’s Place … we had a filled season.  Our Kerry’s Place camp was a huge success and we look forward to offering them some Creative Arts Programming over the March Break.

We have been doing extremely well thus far with our 2016 Indiegogo Campaign and have raised $2920 thus far. This has been exciting for all our participants who keep sharing their excitement with us. Our Staff and Volunteers are delighted as well. With only 21 days left in the campaign we are far from our goal, but we are feeling hopeful that we will get closer to reaching our goal and continue to forge ahead.Thanks to all our our Funders and supporters thus far. Remember even if you can’t contribute financially, you can share as many of our parents such as Dorlene and Doris have done.  This really helps to get the word out!


Reminder to check our website for your class start date under the Program Heading as that is where the most up to date information is placed.  Other areas aren’t always updated by our web designers so continue to check your child’s or your Program Page and ensure you are familiar with any important dates.


It’s also crucial to plan moving forward during the Winter Months to wear indoor shoes to ensure we keep our rental facilities looking wonderful. Thanks for your cooperation.  For all those in DramaWorks, we trust you used the Holiday Season wisely to work on learning and memorizing your lines to the best of your ability.


We look forward to upcoming classes with you all.


Our Indiegogo Campaign is well underway. We have raised $605 so far which is very exciting.  We also have our first Participant Video where our DramaWay performers will be speaking from their own personal experience about how we impact their lives and what they think of the campaign. The below video was created and devised by Jenna Martinuzzi herself who has been with our company for more than 12 years now. Take a look:

Hopefully after watching her video you feel inspired to join us in making a difference in these performers lives. Just visit the link below to hear more details about the campaign.


Thanks so much.
