About Singing OnStage Productions

Onstage Productions is a talented community musical company that provides its members with opportunities to get involved in all aspects of the production from acting and singing to set building and production. Their objectives are:

  1. To stimulate interest in and promote the performance and appreciation of music;
  2. To provide opportunities for Canadian artistic talent; and
  3. To establish, maintain, and operate a permanent Canadian musical company.

Onstage Productions (first called the North Scarborough Choral Society) was founded in 1952 after sensing the need for an organization that produced and performed operettas in the Agincourt area. The group formed a headquarters in Agincourt, where they pooled their resources and increased membership to a point where they were able to perform an annual show. In 1961, the group changed its name to the Scarborough Choral Society, which more accurately portrayed the makeup of the group. From 1961 to 1963, Scarborough Choral Society productions were accompanied by the Metro Orchestra. In 1964, the Society formed an orchestra of semi-professional musicians. In 1965, the group was incorporated into a non-profit, non-shares corporation. Now known as Onstage Productions, it operates as a non-profit organization, performing shows and drawing cast, crew, volunteers and audiences from across the GTA.

The Scarborough Choral Society concentrated on Gilbert & Sullivan operettas from 1952 to 1961. In 1962, the Society deviated from G & S, and produced Edward German's Merrie England. This show was such a success that the next year they decided to continue the experiment with Vagabond King. Since then, the Society has gone on to perform many favourites over the years including: The Pirates of Penzance, Die Fledermaus, Merry Widow, Show Boat, The Music Man, Oklahoma!, Anne of Green Gables, Me and My Girl, Oliver, Fiddler on the Roof, Brigadoon and Meet Me in St. Louis.
