In our first slot, Cap & Bells is thrilled to be commissioning a new musical, East of the Sun and West of the Moon, adapted from the folk stories, by Michelle Rodriguez ’12, that will be performed as a staged reading March 8-10. This is an exciting new step for Cap & Bells. We’re thrilled to be returning to creating original student work and look forward to the series of workshop performances that will culminate in the final performance (and recording session) led by Michelle and featuring the student musicians, actors, singers, and directors who will be developing the musical alongside her. A complete schedule for this process is forthcoming, but keep your heads up for auditions which may be happening soon! Also, this project has a number of artistic and production positions that still need to be filled, so stay tuned for more information about how you can get involved!
In our second slot, we are very excited about the Massachusetts premier of a startlingly new comedy, Tigers Be Still by Kim Rosenstock directed by Lily Riopelle ’14 that will go up in the AMT in May. Lily is still putting together a complete design team, so stay alert if you’re looking to get involved in any capacity. Auditions will be happening sometime in the spring semester.
Thanks to everyone who was a part of our proposal and selection process. We are incredibly impressed by the amount of talent in our community and look forward to these plays and the coming seasons that will hopefully feature more new and original student work and exciting student-led productions!
