Musical in English this weekend to end the summer season.
For the past few years at at the end of August, young actors in the Really Youthful Group (this group is part of GAOS – Geneva Amateur Opera Society), have performed a musical in English in Nyon for the general public. This show has now become a firm favourite on the local calendar as expats and Swiss alike, gather to watch and enjoy the production, meet each other in the bar at the interval and catch up on summer news.
This year the auditorium of the Théâtre de Marens will ring out to the music of “Oklahoma!” by Rogers and Hammerstein on Friday 31st August at 20:00, Saturday 1st September at 14:00 and 18:00 and on Sunday at 14:00. It’s a fun way to end the summer, full booking details here.
