VACHES, the musical

Do you dream of seeing Casselman, the Ice Storm and a cow named Caramel on the big screen? So do we. But until we can get that kind of money, here’s the musical. Very loosely based on a true story, VACHES, the musical tells the story of how Jean, a farmer, tries to save hundreds of cows from certain death despite the obstacles: his urban daughter, the money-hungry mayor, the soldiers who show up and the ice storm that freezes the hearts of the inhabitants.

Both funny and touching, VACHES, the musical speaks (and sings!) with humour and sincerity about the spirit of community and solidarity shown by Franco-Ontarians in the face of adversity.

La Slague's Evolution

La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
