The Cult of Brother 12: A Musical Dark Comedy

Fri Mar 31st, 2023 - Mon Apr 3rd, 2023

March 30th, 31st, April 1st, 2nd @7:30
April 2nd @ 2:00pm

at Malaspina Theatre, VIU

The infamous cult leader is back – and he’s singing! The Cult of Brother 12 is a witty, irreverent, and very tuneful take on the story of the spiritual leader and con man who, in the 1920s, drew acolytes to Valdes Island from around the world.

Following a sold out run at OV Arts Centre last spring, The Cult of Brother XII – A Musical Dark Comedy returns to Nanaimo, with an energized, revitalized new production, featuring the incredible Marty Steele Quintet, a fabulously talented cast, and the gifted young dancers in our new Chorus of Newshounds!

If you were among the hundreds of hugely entertained audience members, from last year’s show, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to experience our new exciting production! And if you missed the toe tapping, laughter filled, roller coaster ride, when The Cult of Brother XII took Nanaimo by storm last spring, we guarantee you’ll be glad you joined The Cult this time.

“Hysterically Accurate” Brother XII

“Congratulations to the cast and crew! The Cult of Brother 12 is full of unexpected laughs, intelligent dialogue and lyrics and is sprinkled with just the right amount of commentary on western definitions of success and gender divides.”  Kait Burgan 2022

“Wonderfully infectious tunes I’ll be humming for days to come!”

“An all island extravaganza! Historical local Cult Leader, Talented Nanaimo and Victoria Cast and Crew, and Nanaimo Playwright and Composer!”

Tickets: $33  / Port Theatre Members: $30
