COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) -They say life begins at 50, and now that MSC OPAS is fifty and fabulous, let the party begin.

MSC OPAS has a lot to celebrate as it announces its 50th anniversary season on Wednesday night at a special event at MSC’s TAMU Bethancourt Ballroom.

Fifty years is a long time when you produce the best in theatre, music and dance. Since 1972, Texas A&M University’s MSC OPAS has provided programs that enlighten, entertain, and inspire audiences in the Brazos Valley and Lonely State.

Anne Black, Managing Director of MSC OPAS has been part of the good times for 38 years. She says she is proud of the past and looks forward to the next 50 years.

” It was wonderful. I mean being in College Station, Texas and having the kind of entertainment that we have in that community is really pretty amazing,” Black said. “We are very excited about the programs we offer. “My vision is that we continue to grow. There are plans to build a new performing arts center and I think it will give us opportunities that we haven’t had. I imagine OPAS and all the arts in this community exploding over the next fifty years.

For the past fifty years, MSC OPAS has brought the best in entertainment to the Texas A&M campus. Hit performances like Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Bandstand and Chicago.

OPAS Board President-Elect Tracy Corrier says she is excited about the future and the lineup of shows being presented in the Brazos Valley.

“With everything that’s happened over the past two years, we’ve had to take a break and now we have an exciting new roster,” Corrier said.

A full list of upcoming shows is below.
