Children's Musical Coming this Fall
Things will get a little fishy on stage at Radford University this fall.
Auditions have concluded and the cast is set for Radford University’s annual performance aimed at young audiences. This year’s offering is The Rainbow Fish Musical.
The play is a cautionary tale about vanity and self-importance inspired by the popular children’s book, The Rainbow Fish, by Swiss writer and illustrator, Marcus Pfister.
Associate Professor and stage veteran, Robyn Berg, will direct and choreograph the show. Dylan Jones plays the title role and is accompanied by Sarah Lindsay Merriman as Little Fish, and Sydney Pepper as Octopus.
Three other actors will play dual roles. Georgi Fenimore plays Starfish and Ms. Minnow, Zoe Keith plays Sardine and Clownfish, and the roles of Pufferfish and Hermit Crab will be performed by Olivia Nargi.
Graduate student Kole Butler is the musical director and senior Drue Maggio is the assistant director. Meagan Cox will serve as stage manager.
The play is part of a long-standing series of Autumn productions that often provide many local children with their first experience with a live production.
Ticket holders should expect a lively romp of a production with singing, dancing, humor and lots of colorful costumes.
Performances will take place on November 12 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and again at 2 p.m. on November 13 in Bondurant Auditorium in Preston Hall on Radford’s main campus.
General admission is $8 and children get in for $4. Radford University students can get in for free. Faculty and Staff tickets are $6.
