Royal Oak Theatre stages Musical

TADA! Actors’ Collaborative brings The Musical of Musicals The Musical to Berwick Royal Oak Theatre

TADA! Actors’ Collaborative brings The Musical of Musicals The Musical to the Berwick Royal Oak Theatre Jan. 22-24.

Music will fill the Berwick Royal Oak Theatre later this month.

The Musical of Musicals The Musical comes to Saanich following a successful run playing to standing ovations at the Oak Bay United Church in September. TADA! Actors’ Collaborative brings the production to the Berwick Royal Oak Theatre (4680 Elk Lake Dr.) Jan. 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 24 at 2 p.m.

This hilarious off-Broadway hit tells the timeless story of the young ingénue who cannot pay her rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to her rescue? Will she take the advice of her friend and confidante?

The same plot is told five times in the musical styles of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Kander and Ebb. This classic story simultaneously pokes fun at, and pays tribute to, these Broadway greats.

The Musical of Musicals The Musical features local performers Pam Miller, Jamie Hillier, Tea Siskin and Kevin Eade. They are joined by pianist Brad L’Écuyer and director Jan Heinrichs.

TADA! Actors’ Collaborative aims to mount theatrical productions at affordable prices in unique venues while raising awareness and money for social concerns and charity. The Oak Bay United Church production in September raised money for The Mustard Seed. Partial proceeds from the upcoming performances at Berwick Royal Oak will support the Victoria Dandelion Society.

Tickets are $20 and are available at Long and McQuade Music, Ivy’s Books and Brentwood Bay Village Empourium. For more information call Jamie Hillier at 250-588-6207 or visit facebook.com/TADA ActorsCollaborative.
