Pirates of Penzance

It’s the first week of Spring semester classes and we’re busy at work on the upcoming production of “Pirates of Penzance,” directed by Sara Griffin, music direction by Bob Gehrenbeck, and featuring work by guest scenic designer Emily Allen, student lighting designer Trevor Brilhart, costume designer Tracey Lyons, student props manager Ryan Meverden, with student Moira Kowalski serving as stage manager.
