    The next GAOS theatre outing will be on 8 February 2020 to see the award-winning Broadway show that ever GAOS director dreams of directing but the rights for which remain painfully out of reach:

    Les Misérables

    Theatre 11 Zurich, Thurgauerstrasse 7, 8050 Zurich.

    As usual, we will catch the train together in the morning and enjoy lunch as a group before seeing the show, buying victuals for the train trip home and arriving back in la Romandie later in the evening.

    The whole package costs CHF 205
    per person (CHF 215 for non-members), with possible discounts for 1/2-tarif and AG holders. 

    Maximum number of participants: 50

    We prefer that you pay by e-banking or bulletin de versement. Credit card payments are also accepted, but we ask that you pay an extra CHF 3 for the credit card charges.

    Registrations are now OPEN

    Performing in a musical requires different skills - singing, dancing, performing movements, learning lines, building a character and acting. Time constraints and the need to prioritize mean that rehearsals tend to focus on singing and blocking, with character building and acting skills not getting the same attention.

    This has inspired GAOS member Lena Blohm to organize an afternoon acting workshop on

    Sunday, 8 March 2020
    at GAOS HQ (14h00-18h30, incl. breaks).

    Whether you are a newcomer or want to refresh your skills, you are encouraged to join in on a fun afternoon journey across various movement-based exercises, games and basic character-building tools. Creativity, expression and “letting go” are frequently blocked forfear of making mistakes or feeling judged. The workshop will provide a safe space where participants can explore their talent without feeling observed or under performance pressure.

    The workshop targets participants who are open-minded, curious and want to to fully immerse themselves in different movement and acting exercises. You will get the most out of this workshop by stepping out of your comfort zone.

    Please sign up in advance by clicking here - you will receive a confirmation email with further details. As places are limited, please be respectful towards the host and other interested members and only sign up if you are available for the entire duration of the workshop, and only attend if you have received a confirmation email. Sign-ups are on a first-come-first-served basis, priority being given to GAOS members.

    Non-members: CHF 20 cover charge. Ages 16+. No previous acting or performance experience required.

    GAOS is delighted to announce that it will be producing


    at the Théâtre de Marens, Nyon, in April 2020.

    Little Shop of Horrors, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics and a book by Howard Ashman, tells the story of nerdy Seymour and his love interest Audrey, who are trying to escape the Skid Row florist where they work with the help of a strange and unusual plant. The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown)", "Somewhere That's Green", and "Suddenly, Seymour".

    The show has been cast and rehearsals have started, but there are still plenty of opportunities to get involved, including helping create Audrey II, the plant and star of the show, taking charge of makeup, helping source props and much more. For more information on how to get involved, contact director Eric Richardson, production secretary Lena Blohm or stage manager David Wrigley.


    La Petite Boutique des Horreurs, comédie musicale inspirée du livre d’Howard Ashman, est l’histoire de Seymour, un fleuriste malchanceux et maladroit qui parvient, par hasard, à faire pousser une plante qui se nourrit de sang et de chair humaine. La musique, d’Alan Menken, est de style années 60, rock and roll, doo-wop et motown. On ne peut oublier des airs comme « Chez Nous », « Tout à coup, Seymour » « L’heure de la Bouffe » ou encore « La Chanson du Dentiste », qui ont aussi conquis le public francophone.

    Ce spectacle sera dirigé par Eric Richardson. Directeur musical : Keith Hayward.
