A Company of Wayward Saints - The Musical

A Company of Wayward Saints - The Musical

By George Herman
Lyrics by Elizabeth Morrison
Music by Donald Morrison
Directed by George de Falussy
May 22 & 23 at 8:00 PM and May 24 at 2:00 PM
Gibson Theatre

A commedia dell' arte group wanders by mistake into the eye of an allegory. They are humanity, wayward saints all, who are far from home and without means. A nobleman may be their salvation if they can put on a good show for him. Surprisingly, the Company chooses to present the history of man, from the Garden of Eden through Everyman in birth, adolescence, marriage and death. Along the way they enact other wayward adventures such as the assassination of Julius Caesar and the homecoming of Odysseus. It is a fine mosaic of life redeemed by humor and human understanding.
