Most recently, Jonah music directed Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Victoria College Drama Society), Carrie: the Musical (Trinity College Dramatic Society), and Into the Woods (St. Michael’s College Troubadours).
Jonah has been a pit musician and rehearsal pianist on productions including Critic’s Pick winner A Perfect Bowl of Pho (Toronto Fringe Festival 2022), The 25th Annual… Spelling Bee (VCDS), Sweeney Todd in Concert (Ember Island Players Theatre), and Spring Awakening (No Strings Theatre).
