Amidst pushy parents, eccentric teachers, hours of repetitive practice, stage fright, the agony of competitions and exams, and the dream of greatness, Ted and Richard grow up as "piano nerds." As they mature, they become more aware of the gap between the merely very good and the great, and come to the humbling realization that concert stardom may be out of reach, but they just might be two of the best piano players in the neighbourhood, and that in itself is worth celebrating.

Ted Dykstra started playing piano at the age of six, and went on to compete in the Edmonton Kiwanis Music Festival when he was twelve. A graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, Ted’s theatre work has won him a multitude of prestigious awards.

Richard Greenblatt is an actor, director, writer, and musician working in theatre for the last thirty-seven years. He was born in Montreal and studied piano for ten years at the McGill Conservatory of Music. A mentor and teacher to young talent, he has taught acting, directing, and play creation at most of the theatre training institutions in Canada. 

"2 Pianos 4 Hands is like a favourite song." —Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail

"…celebrates so strongly not just music but optimism triumphing in the face of disappointment." —Patrick Langston, The Ottawa Citizen
