SHHS alum Shannon Vaerewyck is directing the operetta along with her daughter, Taylor-Jane Vaerewyck, who recently graduated from SHHS. ShoeString is doing the original version of the play and not the updated Broadway version. In order to give the timeless operetta a new twist, Vaerewyck is staging the production “steampunk style”. Steampunk is a science fiction subgenre that sports Victorian elegance and modern technology, such as steam-driven robots or souped-up stagecoaches.
Performances July10-12 and 18-19, 7:00 pm with July 12 matinee, 1:30 pm. Tickets: $12 adults, $10 seniors (62+)/students, available at Organizer website.
