~~This classic tale of survival and loyalty is rarely performed on a stage. With a dedicated cast and crew of over 30 people, Ryan and the gang recreated this island tragedy to splendid reviews. Set to the music of U2, a soundscape by Madison Hallahan and original orchestration by Andrew Hobbs and Sean Collins, the goal of this production was to create an environment, not just a show and to lift the words of William Golding off of the page and into the air of the theatre. Alumnus Jonathan Hirsh dazzled the audience with an LED extravaganza of light, shadow, smoke, and fire and lit the talented cast of actors like never before. “I am a sucker for the stranded, the lost on an island motif. We are all castaways at some point in our lives. We are all in need of rescue”, says Director Ryan Seeley.
Thanks to everyone who came out to see the show! It will not soon be forgotten.
