Vaches, The Musical

May 12, 2023
9th – 12th grade
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes with an intermission

VACHES, THE MUSICAL, IS THE NEW PRODUCTION OF CRÉATIONS IN VIVO.

Do you dream of seeing Casselman, the ice storm and a cow named Caramel in the same movie? So do we. But until we get the budget, here’s the musical. Very freely inspired by a true story, VACHES, the musical, tells how Jean, a farmer, attempts to save hundreds of cows from certain death despite the obstacles: his urban daughter, the money-hungry mayor, the soldiers who show up and the ice storm that is freezing the hearts of the inhabitants.

Both funny and touching, VACHES, the musical, speaks (and sings!) with humour and sincerity about living together and Franco-Ontarians "standing tall" in the face of adversity.

Recipient of four awards following a showcase at the 39th Contact Ontarois, VACHES is the very first Franco-Ontarian musical.
