Ottawa Show Tunes Party for OLPC on July 4th


Calling all Canadians! Here is your chance to celebrate July 4th in your own independent way. Instead of watching the foolishness of the lower 48, you can enjoy a medley of songs from a variety of musicals, performed by students from Sing House Studios in a fundraiser for One Laptop Per Child.

Their rendition of I Hate Musicals!, which includes songs from Phantom of the Opera, Rent and Hello Dolly! will also feature the amazing singing duo Alex Lacasse and Kira Isabella. If you can make it, here's the details:

I Hate Musicals! OLPC Fundrasier
Sing House Studios, under the direction of Chantal Hackett
Saturday, July 4, at 7:30 p.m, Shenkman Arts Centre
245 Centrum Boulevard, Ottawa, ON K1E 0A1

If you're not near Canada tomorrow, you can still follow along with your own mini-OLPC musical with Pydance on the XO - an open-source clone of Dance Dance Revolution, courtesy of Joviko:

And if that's not enough to make you July 4th happy, then what about converting all that motion into energy with a dance-powered XO charger.
