Anyone with an interest in Gilbert and Sullivan or musical theatre is welcome to join.
Cast members are all unpaid volunteers, and range from serious amateurs who perform for enjoyment, music students seeking to hone their skills, to professionals looking to broaden their repertoire.
Please see Auditions for more information.
Rehearsals are every Monday and Wednesday from 7:00pm to 9:45pm, and run from September until our production in May.
In 2014, MWOS partnered with two senior residences in the area. On Mondays, MWOS rehearses at Place Kensington in Westmount; and on Wednesdays, we rehearse at the Vista Residence in NDG. In return for the generous use of their space, MWOS invites the residents to take part in the rehearsals by watching (or participating more actively), as we sing and stage our production. MWOS treated both residences to a couple of performances – one in December and the other, in May. A Special Ticket Discount of 16$ (25% off) was offered to residents for each of our shows. These partnerships proved to be a great success! Thank you, Doreen of Place Kensington, and Riana of Vista Residence, for all your kind help and support.
In 2013, we entered into a partnership with the City of Côte St. Luc Parks and Recreation Department. We are sharing goods, expertise and volunteers with the Cote St. Luc Dramatic Society in return for rehearsal space. We are very grateful to Harold Cammy and his team for all their help and support.
Members are asked to pay a small membership fee each year, this fee gives you the right to vote at any General Meeting held by the Society, and helps defray the costs of rehearsals and production. Each rehearsal is accompanied by a pianist and performances are accompanied, whenever possible, by a small orchestra, under the direction of the music director.
