Empire Lyric Players Audition February 16
“The Sorcerer” by Gilbert & Sullivan
Auditions for “The Sorcerer,” a rarely-performed comic operetta by Gilbert & Sullivan,will be held on Saturday February 16 by appointment only at the Washington Park United Methodist Church. The Empire Lyric Players has been dedicated to the works of Gilbert & Sullivan since 1958.
To enhance this year’s performance, we are adding Steampunk elements consistent with the late 1800’s Victorian setting of the operetta.
Rehearsals are Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons beginning February 22.
Performances will be the first two weekends in June at the Elaine Wolf Theater at the Jewish Community Center.
