TOROS information night being held May 18
Near North District School Board (NNDSB) is proud to announce this summer’s Theatre Outreach On Stage (TOROS) production of Back to the ‘80s Totally Awesome Musical. The show dates are Thursday, Aug. 10 through Sunday, Aug. 13 at West Ferris Secondary School in North Bay.
An information night will be held Thursday, May 18 at 6 p.m. in the West Ferris Secondary School gymnasium for interested students. Students will have an opportunity to hear more about the program, meet the staff and learn a song and dance they can use in their audition.
This year, TOROS will be looking for all kinds of talent, as the cast includes a wide range of actors, dancers and artists. TOROS gives area youth the opportunity to be part of a full-scale musical production. The program is open to students in Grades 8-12 from any school board, and each student earns a secondary school credit for their work in the show. Rehearsals take place five days a week; some rehearsals will be held in the evenings in June and then Monday to Friday from the beginning of July until mid-August.
Since 1987, TOROS has been a proud NNDSB tradition. Many TOROS alumni have gone on to work as professional artists across North America. Others have gone on to teach or promote the arts within their own communities.
