The VPS Musical Company – 2020/2021

Musical applications are no longer being accepted.

The VPS Musical Program is a unique opportunity to create and perform a full length musical production with a group of committed and enthusiastic performing arts students.

All 2020/2021 programs will from Sept-June and is $450. You must be fully committed to all three terms along with the odd weekend rehearsal and (hopefully!) indoor or outdoor performances sometime in June.

There may be a minimal costume fee and performance tickets are not included.
