I couldn’t be prouder of our incredible principal actors and the emerging talent – especially young people – who rounded out our ensemble cast; our amazing orchestra directed by Jill Baker; our dedicated crew, and co-producers Jeff Halligan and Nelia Amaro, who helped realize this years-long dream of returning our brand of musical theatre to our home in Cobourg,” says Joel Varty, Artistic Director and President of the VOS Theatre.
“Thanks to the overwhelming support from our Northumberland audiences and businesses, the VOS Theatre can continue to support local talent both on and off stage. We are especially grateful to Joel Varty whose vision and commitment to this production inspired us all, and a personal thanks to my co-producer Nelia Amaro, for her tireless fundraising efforts,” says Producer, Jeff Halligan.
