About the Tour:
This tour will be a concert revue of all Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most iconic repertoire in celebration of his upcoming 75th Birthday. This is a concert version and therefore the production will not be ‘staged’ nor choreographed - the focus will be on the drama of the voice. For this, we are looking for exceptional voices that can technically and dramatically manage the varied needs of this repertoire.
The tour will visit roughly thirteen BC cities ranging from large Lower Mainland centres to smaller communities. Venues will range in size from 250 - 1200.

Rehearsals: Vancouver (Start April 16, 2022)
Performances: April 24 - May 15, 2022
Rehearsals and most performances will be within the Lower Mainland area which will allow for those who need to work during the day to do so with main rehearsals in late afternoon and evenings.
Out of town travel will be required April 23 - 27 and May 13 - 16.
