Last night Chitty was revealed for the very first time. Designed by Robb Howells and created by the team of Howells and Scott Berry, she’s the largest prop ever to grace the stage at Victoria Hall, a beautiful creation and VOS THEATRE’s Opening Night audience were thrilled.
Audiences cheered and sang along before they jumped to their feet as the show drew to a close.
Don’t miss your chance to watch this talented cast bring Chitty to life. Call the box office today.
Two designers, two producers, several actors, and a slew of volunteers showed on Halloween to build or alter some of the more than 200 costumes needed for the VOS Theatre production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
For co-director Joel Varty it was a sight to behold. “It’s amazing to be part of something where people are willing to give up their Saturday. Seeing Truly Scrumptious pull wig duty was especially fun!”
Some of the volunteers worked for more than 12 hours, indicative of the spirit of community that lives in VOS Theatre.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WHO CONTRIBUTED THEIR TIME!

We caught up with the younger members of the VOS THEATRE Production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The children’s ensemble worked tirelessly on Sunday to move their big number “Teamwork” closer to performance ready. For those of you who are fans of the film, all of your favourite musical treats are in the stage version with some added bonuses like “Teamwork”. The original song-writing team of Richard & Robert Sherman who wrote the songs for the movie collaborated to create new numbers in addition to all your favourites for the stage production.
