Musical to be Performed on Anderson Stage...

     Director Henry MacCarthy has moved the prologue from its original location in ancient Rome and transformed it into a vaudeville style theatre set just before the turn of the 20th century.

Maatman (set designer), and senior Michael Rueckert (lighting designer), as well as 20 performers onstage and a small orchestra. Tickets are available at the Gustavus Ticket Center (x7590).

Cords-Swanson, who has a degree in geography with a specialty in cartography, taught for many years at Minnesota State University, Mankato, in the Geography Department.
