Echoes: an Orig­i­nal Mu­si­cal

to re­sound through Bishop’s Turner Stu­dio

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS -

Agroup of nearly twenty stu­dents from the Drama and Mu­sic De­part­ments at Bishop’s Uni­ver­sity have been hard at work for the past weeks on a col­lec­tive cre­ation of an orig­i­nal mu­si­cal, Echoes that will be pre­sented from June 3rd to June 5th and June 7th to 11th at 8pm in the Turner Stu­dio. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at the Cen­ten­nial The­atre Box Of­fice in per­son or by phone by call­ing 819-8229692. Pa­trons can also ob­tain their tick­ets on­line through Ova­tion (ser­vice charges ap­ply)

An in­ten­sive work-in-progress, Echoes tells the story of a group of uni­ver­sity stu­dents on a quest for trust in and among them­selves as they ven­ture be­tween the real and the fan­tas­ti­cal worlds that sur­round them. Re­turn­ing to di­rect the project is Michael Ken­nard, one half of the in­ter­na­tion­ally known clown duo ‘Mump & Smoot’ and Pro­fes­sor of Drama at the Uni­ver­sity of Al­berta as well as Bishop’s pro­fes­sors Fan­nie Gaudette and Jamie Crooks at the helm of mu­si­cal di­rec­tion.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last year’s first mu­si­cal col­lec­tive Pan­de­mo­nium, in which a fam­ily of clowns makes a jour­ney through hell, Echoes: an Orig­i­nal Mu­si­cal car­ries a hor­ror clown flair and in­cor­po­rates sim­i­lar el­e­ments such as song and dance, clown work and im­pro­vi­sa­tion. The tech­ni­cal as­pect of the mu­si­cal is also in the hands of BU stu­dents who have been de­sign­ing sets and cos­tumes, light­ing and sound. Lo­cal mu­si­cians join Gaudette and Crooks as com­po­si­tion and per­for­mance col­lab­o­ra­tors.
