Chelsea will be performing the role of First Bridesmaid as well as covering the role of Angelina (The Plaintiff).
Last performed by the Lamplighters in 1997, Trial by Jury is Gilbert & Sullivan’s perfect little musical comedy about a jilted bride (Jennifer Ashworth) suing her would-be groom (John Brown). A one-act gem, Trial matches Gilbert’s delicious satire on the legal system with some of Sullivan’s most inventive and tuneful music, performed by the Lamplighters orchestra. Their second collaboration, first produced in London in 1875, Trial by Jury, is distinctive from the others in that it is sung through in its entirety with no spoken dialog. Featuring Jonathan Spencer as the Judge (and a good Judge too!)
We are thrilled to announce that, with the support of generous grants, we have scheduled a special student matinee of Trial by Jury (with full 21-piece orchestra) on Monday, March 14, at 11:00am, at Presentation Theater, at the very affordable price of $5 per student/teacher/adult chaperone.
