Guests—Oak Bay High School

April 21, 2023      Sidney 2:00 pm
April 23, 2023    Oak Bay 2:00 pm

The history of musical theatre begins with its transition from opera and operetta. In operetta and musical theatre the actors sing but they speak the dialogue. From its earliest days with shows such as No, No Nanette (1925) and Showboat (1926), musical theatre has developed to become North America’s contribution to the world arts scene. Expect to hear selections from the pen of George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers and Cole Porter.
