Shawn Byfield Joins Soundstage

A chance meeting between Shawn Byfield and Lynne Leydier led to the famed Toronto choreographer joining her Soundstage Productions team in Penticton.
Byfield will choreograph the forthcoming Soundstage variety show, “Disney+ Broadway Musical Showcase,” a series of musical numbers from 20 or so beloved classics including High School Musical, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen and, of course, Mary Poppins.
Byfield owned and operated his own dance studio for adults only in Toronto. He also travelled the country as a judge and adjudicator for dance competitions and worked as a professional emcee for corporate and charity events.
His resume in choreography and dance includes appearing in the Golden Globe-nominated 2007 feature film “Hairspray” with John Travolta and “Blues Brothers 2000,” a sequel to the 1980 original where the whole gang — minus John Belushi — was back.
