Ruddygore
Stage Director: Jane Erwin Hammett • Music Director: Baker Peeples

Gilbert & Sullivan's comic masterpiece melds the world of Jane Austen with a good old-fashioned English ghost story and a dash of Wuthering Heights romance.

When inflicted with a family curse, Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd fakes his death and disguises himself as simple farmer Robin Oakapple, leaving his brother Sir Despard to carry the curse of being forced to commit one deadly crime a day or perish in inconceivable agonies. Before long, Robin falls in love with virtuous maiden Rose Maybud, but he finds himself in a love-triangle with his foster brother, Dick Dauntless. Add to the mix Mad Margaret who has been driven to insanity by the curse on her beloved Despard, a bevy of professional bridesmaids, and a ghostly chorus of ancestors, and you have a topsy-turvy recipe for fear and fun.

The Pirates of Penzance Singalong
Music Director: Baker Peeples

2016 is a leap year, so it’s time to celebrate to celebrate Frederic’s “40th” birthday (measured by leap years) with our Sing-Along The Pirates of Penzance. The performance will be presented in full with beautiful costumes and minimal set, bringing the fabulous Lamplighters orchestra on stage. YOU will be the chorus! Sing along with any/all parts. Dress up like a rough and rowdy pirate, a bumbling British bobby, a modern Major-General, one of his bevy of beautiful daughters, or just a plain and simple 21st century G&S aficionado. Also featuring a costume contest, this unique event promises to be a huge amount of fun!
