Spring Production: The Gondoliers

The Gondoliers will be staged on May 4, 5 and 6, 2018 at the Community School of Music-Arts, Ithaca, NY. A classic Gilbert and Sullivan and favorite of many Savoyards, the Gondoliers. The operetta tells the story of a young bride of the heir to the throne of the fictional kingdom of Barataria who arrives in Venice to join her husband. It turns out, however, that he cannot be identified, since he was entrusted to the care of a drunken gondolier who mixed up the prince with his own son.

Fall Musical: Of Thee I Sing

Of Thee I Sing will be staged in September 2018 at the Hanger Theater, Ithaca, NY. A Gershwin musical, Of Thee I Sing is a witty political commentary that tells the story of a man who runs for President of the United States on the "love" platform
