Mean/Kind ... a concert show
In times like these, Musical Theater offers a unique view helping us understand why people behave and choose the way we do. Is the witch as bad as she seems? How can a father reject a daughter? Does a kind action truly make a difference? From the safety of stage, we try on different emotions and show transformations happen, sometimes in surprising ways for the singers as well as for the audience. It is said that change begins inside each one of us… all we need is faith as large as a mustard seed. Raising your voices in song helps bring this change, creating possibility, hope and fun for all who join in, as singers and for our audiences.
Join the Zug Show Choir for our exciting new project. Co-directed by Hanns Zoellner and Kate Michaels, songs and scenes from the musicals Wicked, West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof will be staged along with songs by pop artist Taylor Swift and famed cabaret writer and conductor David Friedman. Scheduled performance dates are 4th & 5th November 2023 at the Chollerhalle in Zug.
We are looking to expand our choir! Virtual try-outs take place 6th & 7th January 2023 by advance appointment only. You may use live music, backing track or sing a capella.
