Who are we?


The North Shore Light Opera Society (NoSLOS) is a non-profit society that has been entertaining generations of audiences since 1948.  NoSLOS has brought operetta, Gilbert and Sullivan, and Broadway musicals to North Vancouver and West Vancouver for dedicated theatre goers looking for high value, high quality shows on a local stage.  As the oldest, continuously-producing, musical theatre company in British Columbia, NoSLOS has produced more than 70 shows in 69 years.  NoSLOS also performs showlettes (compilations of operetta and musical highlights)  at senior living centres and high schools across the North Shore.  Every year, NsSLOS offers the Harris-McLean Award, to a promising individual in their current show, to continue their musical and dramatic studies.

  • to advance the public's appreciation of the arts by providing high quality arts events and community musical theatre performances, with a maximum of community involvement
