Join us for our fabulous 2016-2017 season! The Grand Duke was the final collaboration of Gilbert & Sullivan, and was our main stage show in the spring of 2017. Thespis was their first work, for which most of the music has been lost. Our own Alan Riley Jones has composed a fantastic fully orchestrated score for Thespis, which we will be premiering along with a performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s one-act comic opera, Trial by Jury, in October, 2017.
Performances of Trial by Jury and Thespis will be October 12-15, 2017, at East Chapel Hill HS.
Our Public Sing-Through of Thespis and Trial by Jury was Sunday, May 7th, 2017 at 2pm in the Durham Arts Council.
Auditions for Thespis and Trial by Jury will be Monday, May 22, and Tuesday, May 23, with call-backs Thursday, May 25. Rehearsals will start around the beginning of August (tentatively July 30). To schedule an audition, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
