It’s a new semester, and we’re off to a running start! Or should I say paddling? Rowing? If you couldn’t guess, this semester, we’re putting on a production of The Gondoliers; or, the King of Barataria. In typical G&S fashion, Gondoliers is a tale of princes switched at birth by a (contralto) nursemaid. Abnormally for G&S, this show features a song in Italian, so wish us buona sorte with the diction!
Music rehearsals are well underway. This past Saturday, we had our sing-through, which is the first time the entire cast and senior staff come together. It’s always exciting to see the beginnings of a new production – especially so for me personally, as I am returning to the stage as Gianetta in Gondoliers! Thank you, thank you, hold your applause until our opening on March 29 (mark your calendars!).
Winter Update #1: The Board of HRG&SP is thrilled to introduce our newest members, Sam Guillemette ‘20 and Ross Simmons ‘21!
Winter Update #2: The weather in Cambridge is dreadful these days. A gondola might be useful to navigate the puddles at this point (although it would be a little tricky to store in a backpack).
