About The Event

Thespis was Gilbert & Sullivan's very first work. Sullivan's music has been lost (except for two numbers), but American composer Bruce Montgomery has written a very Sullivan-like score to replace it.

The gods on Mt. Olympus have grown old and bored. When a troupe of actors climb the mountain for a picnic, they and the gods quickly work out a scheme to leave the actors in charge while the gods go for a holiday on earth.

Complications ensue...

There will be a pre-show talk one hour before the curtain. Stage Director Laurie Hupman and Music Director Jeffrey Yaeger will discuss aspects of the show. Questions will be taken from the audience.

Part of Lyric Theatre's Discovery Series. Semi-staged with orchestra. Adult tickets $26; Under 15 $15. Purchase tickets at
