CONWAY, SC - Coastal Carolina University's Departments of Music and Theatre will join together to perform the comedic "Scenes from Gilbert and Sullivan," at 3 p.m. March 26 and 27 in the Recital Hall of Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.
The CCU Opera Workshop event, directed by professor David Bankston, with musical direction by Steven Gross, will be a tribute to the Victorian era operettas by librettist W.S. Gilbert and composer Arthur Sullivan, including "H.M.S. Pinafore," "The Mikado" and "The Pirates of Penzance."
"This 'Pirates' is not your mother's 'Pirates of Penzance,' and will have plenty of contemporary touches, which Gilbert and Sullivan did themselves as they premiered their own operettas," says Gross.
"Scenes from Gilbert and Sullivan" cast members are theatre majors Justin Ables, sophomore; Justina Adorno, sophomore; Charles Armstrong, sophomore; Emily Brockway, junior; Sarah Burton, sophomore; Haley Chapel, sophomore; Haley Delaney, junior; Emily Dixon, sophomore; Meredith Gratton, junior; Drew Hardy, freshman; Sydney Hough, junior; Jackie Irving, freshman; Caleb Jernigan, junior; Colleen Kerrigan, sophomore; Madison Moize, junior; Jennifer Pagano, freshman; Drew Taylor, sophomore; Robert Wallace, sophomore; Kimberlee Ward, sophomore; Eric Waters, freshman; Dan Wilt, freshman; Lexi Wohlford, freshman; and Hannah Zilber; freshman; and music majors Drew Benson, senior; Courtney Pendelton, sophomore; and Brittany Shirley, junior.
