VACHES, the musical
The “Franco-Ontarian Broadway”
Have you been dreaming of seeing Casselman, the ice storm and a cow named Caramel in the same film? Us too. But while we are waiting for the budget, here’s the musical comedy version. Very loosely inspired by a true story, VACHES, the musical tells the story of how Jean, a farmer, will try to save hundreds of cows from sure death despite the obstacles: his urban daughter, the money-hungry mayor, the soldiers showing up and an ice storm that is turning the residents’ hearts to ice.
Both funny and touching, VACHES, the musical speaks (and sings!) with humour and sincerity about how Franco-Ontarians coexist and “stand up” in the face of adversity.
