VCS youth present CLOWNS June 7th, 2:30 & 7pm

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Vancouver CanSing Choir (VCS) youth will present the musical theatre production of CLOWNS, June 7th, 2:30 & 7pm, 4370 Sophia St (Cityview Church).  The group is directed by Gerda Blok-Wilson, accompanied by Kevin Eng and choreographed by Erin Robertson. The show will be one hour in length and admission is by donation.  VCS will also present 2 school shows, June 6th, 10:30am and 1pm. These are already full!

Craig Cassils’ musical CLOWNS was first performed at the Canadian Music Educator’s Association National Conference in 1987.  Since then, it has been performed across Canada and in the US.

The story is about a young, energetic troupe of clowns who hope to be professionals someday.  They are looking for the great secret of life and set out to consult the BIG WHEEL.  The lively story with 11 wonderful songs is one of singing and dancing, laughing and crying, searching and finding – the very elements of life itself!  We hope you can join us!

Seize the day 3 - 14On behalf of Erica (accompanist), Andrea (assistant), Lucy (assistant) and me, I have to say that it’s been amazing to see the skill development this year.  The Level 2 & 3 singers “wowed” the audience with their expression, part singing and choreography! 

The commitment to rehearsal and creating an engaging performance by most of our members was reinforced by the standing ovation at the evening show! Congratulations!!
