Boston, MA, April 10, 2013: Now in its 5th year of performance, Voices of Hope (VOH) departs from established revue format to perform a complete rock opera. On Saturday, May 11, 2013, VOH will perform a full production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly. Doors open at 7:00pm for a silent auction followed by the performance at 8:00pm. A VIP reception with the cast will follow the show.

Voices of Hope (VOH) is an organization of more than 100 individuals from Greater Boston who voluntarily donate their time and creative talents to raise awareness and funds for cancer research, as well as providing education to the general public regarding the cancer experience. These inspirational performers are bound by a vital connection; each of their lives has been directly affected by cancer in some way.

Offering annual Spring and Fall performances, as well as a multitude of smaller appearances throughout the year, VOH has begun to establish a loyal following of fans who not only enjoy their music, but are connected to their commitment to benefit cancer research. With a now well-established repertoire of large scale performances at venues ranging from Boston Symphony Hall, Shalin Liu Theater, and Jordan Hall, this year, VOH decided to hold their Spring performance at North Shore Music Theatre (NSMT.)

“Being aware of our mission, our collective talent, and our track record of drawing a good audience, NSMT agreed to find a space for us in their 2013 calendar,” says Greg Chastain VOH Founder and President. “In addition to NSMT offering a wonderfully unique “in the round” venue, they are helping us promote the show through all of their own extensive marketing channels. As a lesser known entity, they wanted to be sure we offered a performance they knew would appeal to their established customers. Jesus Christ Superstar fit the bill of allowing our VOH vocalists, dancers, and musicians to display their skills, while delivering a show that is familiar and well-loved by a broad audience.”

Proceeds to benefit the Henri and Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.Together, this group of local performers delivers a powerful, emotionally-charged, and inspiring theatrical experience. Through a common commitment to support the research that holds the key to a cure, VOH gives purpose to performance. The current VOH beneficiary is the Henri & Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at the Massachusetts General Cancer Center. Since our first performance in 2009, we have donated a total of $185,000 to cancer research. For more information about Voices of Hope, visit www.voicesofhopeboston.org.

Voices of Hope is an organization dedicated to raising funds for cancer research through music and song. Conceived by local performer, Greg Chastain, who lost his mother in 2009 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, Voices of Hope is comprised of local performers whose lives have all been changed by cancer. With music as their voice, these inspirational performers share their stories of hope, loss, courage and recovery through song, dance and testimonial.

All Voices of Hope proceeds for 2013 will benefit the Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
