2015-16 Season Opens September 13

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 at 3pm
Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood Christian School

Join us for our first musicale of the 2015-16 Gilbert & Sullivan season, as we present an entrancing afternoon of poetic verse and music, intertwining the worlds of Gilbert & Sullivan and Shakespeare. Savoyards and Bards share the stage in this hilarious re-interpretation of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic recently produced by GSSA, “The Sorcerer.” 
As the story ensues, the villagers of Ploverleigh can all breathe a sigh of relief – John Wellington Wells has broken the spell by yielding his life to Ahrimanes, and all life goes back to its usual pace, day by day, to the last syllable of recorded time…
That is until… another spell befalls the townspeople when a mysterious stranger spikes the tea at Ploverleigh Globe Theatre’s Shakespeare Festival. As usual, all the good citizens of the town imbibe this pernicious potion and fall prey to its soporific effect – they go to sleep. 
Upon awakening, our Ploverleighans believe they are characters from Shakespeare’s plays, and they can’t help but speak in iambic pentameter! Yet they still love to sing in topsy-turvy Gilbert & Sullivan style. 
Our wonderful troupe of performers includes: Patricia Combs, Andy Fleming, Rosa Harris, Sam Johnson, Maurine McLean, Susan Meitz, Alexandra Reilman, Robert Schneider, Sarah Steele, Ian Stillwell, Abigail Stokley, Jamieson Taylor, David Treadwell, Brittany Trinite, Michelle Vanecek, and Julius Young. Janette Jones performs and directs, with piano accompaniment by Jeanne Sasaki. 
This performance is free.Please bring a food or drink contribution for the reception and join us!

  

President Libby Weed details our upcoming 2015-16 season and our bigger and better musicales presented throughout the year; Ralph MacPhail, Jr. reveals the magic that made our recent production of “The Sorcerer” such a memorable success; recent news about scholarship recipients; early information about our Summer 2016 Grand Production of “The Gondoliers” – and much more!

This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and in part by the City of Austin Economic Development Department/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. Visit Austin at NowPlayingAustin.com
