HMS PINAFORE CAST ANNOUNCED
"Nautical Operetta" To Be Theatre Company's First Production at RPCS
Towson, Maryland, March 31, 2013:General Manager Brian S. Goodman, Stage Director James Harp and Musical Director Philip Collister announce the casting of the Young Victorian Theatre Company's 2013 production of Gilbert & Sullivan's world-renowned operetta H.M.S. Pinafore, or, the Lass That Loved a Sailor. The season marks a critical shift for the Young Vic, with a full orchestra pit and other improvements made possible by the company’s debut at Roland Park Country School (RPCS).
Performance dates entail two weekends and one Thursday performance (July 18). The full schedule for performances is July 13-14, July 18, and July 20-21 at the Sinex Theater at RPCS.
The cast for H.M.S. Pinafore features Colin Adams-Toomey in the role of Sir Joseph; Peter Tomaszewski as Captain Corcoran; Jonathan Wagstaff as Boatswain; Logan Rucker as Ralph Rackstraw; Andrew Adelsberger as Dick Deadeye; and Jenni Bank as Little Buttercup. During the course of the run, performers will share important roles at alternative performances. On alternate dates Katherine Hosier and Molly Adams-Toomey will play the role of Cousin Hebe, and Melissa Mino and Gabrielle Demers will play Josephine.
The cast includes several performers who have performed previously for the Young Vic, including stars from the theater's 2012 production of The Mikado that received high critical acclaim.
The cast offers significant professional operatic experience across the U.S. and even abroad. A full chorus and orchestra will also be featured.
"Our enthusiasm for this talented and seasoned cast of professional opera singers is matched by our excitement in experiencing the Sinex Theater as our new venue in 2013," said Young Vic General Manager Brian Goodman. "The Young Vic is approaching 50 years as a Baltimore summer arts institution, and we look forward to how this wonderful facility will bring forth the talent of our cast and orchestra in unprecedented ways."
