Meet the Staff of Iolanthe!

Written by Alice Hyde

While the cast is hard at work mastering the music and diving into blocking the show, the staff is gearing up to hammer, paint, and sew the show together. The staff meets each week with the producers of the show to go over what’s happening, and to make sure all the various departments are on the same page. We’ve got an army of designers, assistants, and other technicians working to make sure the show goes off without a hitch.

We’re all very excited to see what they create this semester and to share it with you in a few weeks time!

Without further ado, I present to you our talented and terrific staff:
