THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
July 11 to 23, 2017
Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical success, The Phantom of the Opera, will come to Vancouver as part of a brand new North American Tour. Critics are raving that this breathtaking production is bigger and better than ever before.
This Phantom features a brilliant new scenic design by Paul Brown, Tony Award-winning original costume design by Maria Björnson, lighting design by Tony Award winner Paule Constable, new choreography by Scott Ambler and a new staging by director Laurence Connor.
The beloved story and thrilling score is performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this Phantom one of the largest productions now on tour.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC
September 12 to 17, 2017
A brand-new production of The Sound of Music conveys the spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family. The Sound of Music will thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award® winning Best Score, including My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, Edelweiss and its title song.
The Sound of Music enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in over 50 years when The Sound of Music Live! aired on NBC in December, 2013 and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.
November 14 to 19, 2017
We absolutely loved this 2006 Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award®-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons when it last toured in Vancouver. Jersey Boys is the true story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history.
They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before reaching the age of 30!
Jersey Boys features their hit songs Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Rag Doll, Oh What a Night and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. “THE CROWD GOES WILD!” cheers The New York Times.
MOTOWN THE MUSICAL
February 6 to 11, 2018
Motown the Musical is the true American dream story of Motown’s founder Berry Gordy’s journey from a featherweight boxer to heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson and many more. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat.
Featuring classic songs such as My Girl and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, experience the story behind the music in the record-breaking smash hit Motown the Musical. The national tour is produced by Tony Award®-winning producer Kevin McCollum (Rent, In the Heights, Avenue Q), Chairman and CEO of SONY Music Entertainment Doug Morris and Motown founder Berry Gordy.
