A work-in-progress original musical presentation.

The Lost Heroes of Oro is a new musical, written and directed by Alinka Angelova, that tells the story of Black Canadian hero, Richard Pierpoint, and the establishment of the Oro African Church. 

This series of lightly staged presentations will offer audiences an opportunity to provide their feedback of the show and help Theatre by the Bay develop and improve the show for a full-scale production in the future.


The Lost Heroes of Oro will run from February 17-20, 2022, with four performances at the Five Points Theatre. The show will run for approximately 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission.


Tickets to The Lost Heroes of Oro are now completely sold out. Thank you to everyone who expressed interest and purchased a ticket. 

If you were not able to purchase a ticket, do not worry - this show's journey will continue in the future. 

We can't wait to see you at the theatre!
