SUDS “the rockin 60′s musical”

Sara-Jeanne Directed and Choreographed this charming little show along side the late and much missed Lloyd Nicholson (Musical Director) at the Waterfront Theatre. It was a huge success, so the Arts Club picked it up and put it on tour. The tour sold out, so they decided to remount it on their Granville Island MainStage. Before that run, Amy Wallis, who played Cindy Lou had to pull out, so Sara-Jeanne had the great joy of taking over the role. It was a wonderful summer run. Truly a love child for her.

Sara-Jeanne Hosie not only directs Suds but stars in it. Her wideeyed hamming is nicely attuned to the show’s simple comedy, and a strong singing voice that can easily belt to the back of the room doesn’t hurt either. ” -The Vancouver Sun, Peter Bernie


Sara-Jeanne Hosie is winsome in the role of Cindy, the laundromat manager and also does a stellar job with directing and musical staging. ” -The Review Vancouver Sun


A nostalgic journey to the unforgettable songs of the 1960’s SUDS is a delightful story of a young woman and the guardian angels who teach her about finding true love in, of all places, a laundromat! SUDS is loaded with good clean fun, bubbling energy and over 50 well-known songs that topped the charts of the 1960s (Respect, Where the Boys Are, Say A Little Prayer, and more). It’s the summer musical that will keep you singing along long after you leave the theatre.
