About Our Little Secret @ The MAC

The 23andMe Musical...

What does a 31-year-old theatre kid do when a DNA test reveals that his biological parents aren't quite who he thought they were? Write a musical, of course! Our Little Secret (Winner, Best of Fringe Toronto 2023) is the true story of the suddenly not-so-only child Noam Tomaschoff as he grapples with questions of family, identity, and just how many brothers and sisters he really has (38 half-siblings and counting).

In July of 2023, Our Little Secret burst onto the Toronto theatre scene and took the Fringe Festival by storm, selling out its run and winning both the Best of Fringe and Patron’s Pick awards. Blending comedy, drama, and addictive music, Noam takes the audience on an unforgettable emotional journey, ending with a message of optimism that is sure to make you hold your family just a little bit tighter. This absorbing, hilarious, and moving show follows Noam as he discovers his real identity and uncovers the secret that the dad who raised him isn’t his biological father. Told with humour, vulnerability, and raw emotion, it explores Noam’s own beginnings and what happens when the truth comes out and turns your world upside down.
