Victoria Operatic Society VOS 2018-2019 season

Victoria Operatic Society VOS 2018-2019 season. Preview.

VOS is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization established in 1945 with the purpose of bringing top-quality live musical theatre to Victoria and giving aspiring young singers and performers the opportunity to display their talents.

Over the years, VOS has produced Broadway Musicals, Light Operas, and Gilbert & Sullivan productions, using and promoting local talent on and off the stage. The Society strives for quality, professional productions, while endeavouring to maintain affordable family prices.

VOS provides and encourages the training of young artists in all facets of musical theatre production, through the provision of theatrical workshops and practical hands-on experience with our annual productions and other events.

In addition to twice-yearly presentations of musical theatre, the Society also offers the Victoria community a Christmas delight of Carol Concerts that, after many years of success, have become much in demand by retirement homes, hospitals and festive gatherings.

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of musical theatre. Over two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world and now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece comes to the McPherson Playhouse. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love. VOS is proud to announce RENT as our November 2018 production. Stay tuned for more information.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, SHREK: THE MUSICAL is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure that brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears. Irreverently fun for the whole family, SHREK proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
