Following up on our three-week tour of episodes of Radio Free Charleston that feature music from Dan Kehde and Mark Scarpelli’s MARY: Rock Opera, we go back to 2010 and 2012.
MARY opens Friday Nov. 28, 8PM, at the WVSU Capitol Center Theater, Charleston. with performances Sat. Nov. 29, 8PM, Sunday Nov. 30, 2PM matinee, and Thurs Dec.4, Fri. Dec. 5 Sat. Dec 6, 8PM.
The above video from 2012 is a performance of the stirring “Trio” that ends the first act, with two sets of actresses portraying Elizabeth, The Archangel Gabriel and Mary combining to form a “Double Trio” of six wonderful voices. As Elizabeth we have Lo Mallory and Susanna Tucker. Singing the role of Gabriel are Maddy Gourevitch and Susanna Morris. In the tile role of Mary are Katie Shaver and Rowan Maher. That year CYAC tried having two casts who traded off the roles, so we took advantage and combined them.
Below you see both parts of our coverage of the 2010 production. Thas year the cast included CYAC veterans Maddy Gourevitch as Gabriel, Donnie Smith as Joseph, Craig Auge as Zechariaih, Katrina Scarpelli as Elizabeth, Jonathan Tucker as Herod, and Brynna Horswell as Mary. Other returning veterans included April Richardson Morgan, Nik Tidquist, and Austin Thomas.
