The Summer Savoyards Present 'The Sorcerer"

Play

The Summer Savoyards of Binghamton present Gilbert and Sullivan’s early operetta ‘The Sorcerer’ in the Chamber Hall of the Anderson Center on the Binghamton University campus. An egotistical nobleman about to be married conspires with a hapless “Family Sorcerer” to administer a love potion to the entire village. Since it is a comedy, the plot goes hilariously wrong. WSKG’s Sam Goodyear chats with Music Director Sherri Strichman and with the Sorcerer himself, John Starks. http://wskg.org/audio/sorcerer.mp3

The Summer Savoyards present Gilbert & Sullivan's "Iolanthe" in a re-vamped style

Play

WSKG’s Sam Goodyear speaks with Mary Donnelly, Kate Murray, and Jim Mica about the Summer Savoyards’ production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe — Re-Vamped.  In Celtic literature fairies were not cut from the same cloth as Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather, but rather more like the vampires of popular culture.  This production satirizes both the current crop of vampires and politics at the same time. http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wskg/local-wskg-1035327.mp3
