CCU to perform 'Scenes from Gilbert and Sullivan'

  David Bankston  
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 the Thomas W. and Robin W. 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,'" says Gross. "There will be plenty of contemporary touches, which Gilbert and Sullivan did themselves when they premiered their own operettas."

"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.

General admission tickets are $3;admission is free for CCU and Horry-Georgetown Technical College students (one per valid ID), faculty and staff (two per valid ID), as well as children under age 10.
