042315ardenThe Ardensingers present: The Sorcerer, by Gilbert & Sullivan, April 24th – May 2nd

This production will be set in modern times while still remaining respectful and true to this classic work. The major themes of the show related to social classes and expectations that “matters of the heart” should stay within one’s own class will be viewed through modern lenses by incorporating an ensemble of wealthy aristocrats, low born workers, and traveling circus / carnival performers along with an element of spectacle and magic (both wonderful and cheesy) that will make this a truly special production. Arden Gild Hall.
