Gilbert and Sullivan in Rocket City!
Gilbert and Sullivan in Rocket City explores the famous G&S operas in today’s world by creating a production in and about Huntsville. This show combines some of G&S’s best-known pieces such as Three Little Maids, The Matter Trio, and Poor Wandr’ing One with brand new, clever dialogue by G&S lover and expert, Jaie Deschene. Tailor-made for Encore Opera Huntsville, the three little maids transform into three little engineering nerds from UAH. The nerds wander through Rocket City building robots, spaceships, and, of course, looking for love. Hilarity ensues.
