Brian Goodman Announces Most Major Roles Filled for 2014

Says General Manager Brian S. Goodman, "I am pleased to announce that we have selected an extremely strong core cast for our Summer 2014 production of The Gondoliers, the last great work in the G&S canon.  This operetta features much beautiful and melodious music from one of Sullivan’s lush scores, as well as the wonderful cachuca dance.  Stage Director Jim Harp and conductor Philip Collister will also return for our 44th season."

Says Goodman, "I also want to take this opportunity to thank Roland Park Country School again for welcoming us to their wonderful Sinex Auditorium. Last summer, for Pinafore, the acoustics, real orchestra pit and stage size all proved to be great for both the performers and the audience, and we are happy to be returning in 2014 to what is now officially our new home.

For the CAST LIST, please consult the Meet the Cast page.
