Hello, and welcome back!
Our warmest greetings to all of you, near and far! It is with great pleasure that we announce our fall production of Iolanthe; or, The Peer and the Peri! This happens to be my personal favorite G&S show, and I am absolutely thrilled to be bringing it back to the Agassiz stage with our amazing cast, crew, and orchestra. More information can be found on the “Happening Now” page.
We have many exciting developments underway at HRG&SP this semester. Our directorial team has decided to pursue a new direction with the sound world of our show as compared to previous semesters, leaning into a more operatic sound. That being said, our cast members’ musical backgrounds range from opera to musical theater to a capella; and speaking as a habitual cast member myself, I’ve found that one of the greatest things about a G&S cast is everyone’s differing areas of expertise—it makes for a fantastic learning environment! In addition, we are quite eager to strengthen our undergraduate community through our weekly social event, UNOs. Whether you come every week, we haven’t seen you in a while, or you’ve never been, you are always welcome at UNOs!
Lastly in the string of exciting announcements, we are happy to be making a full, in-person return to our traditional social events, such as Wine and Cheese, the Milk and Cookies matinee, and the Alumni Night reception. It has been too long since we have been able to engage with our community to the pre-pandemic extent, and we couldn’t be more excited to deepen these connections once again.
We hope to see you at the Agassiz Theater this November! Tickets will go on sale at the Harvard Box Office shortly before opening night. If you wish to buy tickets before the general public, you can do so by becoming a patron. We will be mailing a special order form to our patrons in the next two weeks, so be sure to join our mailing list soon to get the patron letter and order form. You can find it under the “Patrons” tab, where you can also make other donations. We are deeply grateful for your support.
