Blue Hill Troupe Season 96, 2019-2020 Season
The Blue Hill Troupe is proud to present our 96th season supporting New York charities with the proceeds of our family-friendly performances. This year, we proudly present Rupert Holmes’s Victorian music-hall gem, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Sorcerer, for the benefit of Rocking the Boat.
QUICK LINKS to info:
The Mystery of Edwin Drood – November 8 – 16, 2019
will be performed at the Theater at St. Jean’s, 180 East 76th Street, New York City.
Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Sorcerer – April 22 – 26, 2020
will be performed at El Teatro of El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue at 104th Street, New York City.
Magical mix-ups and mayhem ensue in The Sorcerer, a giddy, ‘upstairs, downstairs’ confection of mismatched lovers and love potion-spiked tea. Blue Hill Troupe’s novel production presents Sullivan’s buoyant, festive score with the first-class musical values audiences have come to expect.
Book, Music & Lyrics by Rupert Holmes
Directed & choreographed by Gary Slavin, Music Directed by Matthew Stephens.
Based on Charles Dickens’ final unfinished novel, this hilarious whodunit invites the audience to solve its mystery by choosing the identity of the murderer. The tale is presented as a show-within-a-show, as the Music Hall Royale – a delightfully loony Victorian theatre company – presents Dickens’ brooding mystery. Musical numbers include “Perfect Strangers,” “Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead,” “Off To The Races” and “Moonfall.” Fun for the whole family, and interactive – the audience will vote on important parts of the ending, so each performance is completely different from the others!
