Gilbert and Sullivan Players Present "Psychedelic Princess"
Organization: Saint Vincent College
Description: Saint Vincent College’s Gilbert and Sullivan Players will present “Psychedelic Princess” at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 24 and 25, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 26, in the Robert S. Carey Student Center Performing Arts Center. Admission is free but donations will be accepted.
The show is a modern envisioning of W.S. Gilbert's straight play "The Princess" and subsequently, Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan's operetta "Princess Ida." In all three versions of the show, Prince Hilarion (played by William Brown, a sophomore English major from East Orange, New Jersey) must go and reclaim his fiancée, Princess Ida (played by Mary Yeckley, a sophomore physics major from Greensburg), from an all-girls' university that she set up in an attempt to escape the world of men.
The crew consists of Casey Ciocco (director, a senior criminology, law and society major from Latrobe), Maria Kegg (assistant director), Mark Harris (producer), and Katie Nemchik (technical director). They revamped the original show from its original context and set it in the psychedelic, groovy 1960s.
Saint Vincent Theatre technical director Penny Lin Lambright is assisting the students with the production.
