And that’s a wrap! We are officially done with our fall run of The Pirates of Penzance. Thank you to our directors, Patrick Cressler ’20 and Mateo Lincoln ’19, for their endless creativity and dedication to this production. Reimaging a G&S show in a different time and place is always a risk, and I think this one paid off. I felt like I was living in the cool world of 1940s New York. I also want to personally thank everyone who came to support our film noir take on this G&S classic. I’m still combing through emails which compliment the wonderful work of our cast, orchestra, and crew! We’ve all had a wonderful experience this semester working together to create something that we’re proud of.
We’ve already started gathering a staff for next semester’s production of The Yeoman of the Guard—the whole process begins over again! But for now, it’s time to take a little breather and get back to the school work that we’ve been putting off. Time to leave the theater and return to the library.
