OPAS announced its new season, which will include the Grammy-nominated musical, Something Rotten!

MSC OPAS announced its 2018-19 “Raise Your Voice” season Tuesday, May 29, promising two new musicals which debuted on Broadway in 2015.
OPAS, a Memorial Student Center organization, was founded in 1972 and brings professional performers to Rudder in order to inspire audiences of the Brazos Valley. Its upcoming season, which will debut in October and conclude in April, is comprised of six Ann Cobb Wiatt Main Stage events, five events in the Intimate Gatherings series and three special events.
Executive Director Anne Black said two standout events are The Choir of Man, an international sing-along concert which will kick of the season in its first U.S. performance, and the Boston Pops, who will perform a John Williams program, which Black says will have a “broad appeal.”
In addition to The Choir of Man, the Ann Cobb Wiatt Main Stage series will feature The Sound of Music, Celtic Woman’s Best of Christmas Tour, The King and I, and two new musicals, Finding Neverland and Something Rotten! In 2016, Something Rotten! was nominated for a Grammy Award for best musical theater album.
The Intimate Gatherings series, which often includes question and answer sessions after performances, will feature The Capitol Steps, Steel Magnolias, Frankenstein, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Lonesome Traveler: The Concert with Guest Star and Folk Legend Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary.
Joining the Boston Pops in the special events series are Soweto Gospel Choir and Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure. According to an OPAS press release, both of these events are perfect for families.
Season and single tickets are available at Special pricing is available for students.
