After a year of postponed in-person productions and following the success of their Virtual Concert, Colchester Operatic Society return with their summer concert The Show Must Go Online – a digital production for all. Let COS entertain you from the comfort of your own home with this unique, uplifting concert streamed exclusively online for ticket holders.
The Show Must Go Online contains hand-picked musical and pop songs, linked by an original script, providing humour and entertainment whilst depicting the events, feelings, and experiences of the pandemic.
The Show Must Go Online begins in March 2020; the empty shelves in shops, our Telly binging and how we sometimes felt like I’m All Alone, but through connecting with people online You Will Be Found. We touch on the amazing people of the pandemic and that we are all part of one Human Heart. We also look at when the world opened again in summer, keeping distanced and how that felt for those shielding. We then move onto how they Just Keep Moving The Line on lockdown dates over Christmas, but quickly move to the elation of early 2021 where we saw a Light at the End of the Tunnel, feeling like we were coming out of the pandemic Still Standing
The show will be streamed from 7:30pm on the 28th August and once streamed the link will be available for 72 hours. Because we know the past 18 months haven’t been easy tickets are offered as Pay What You Can Afford!
We thank you for your support and hope that you enjoy the show!
