G&S “Pirates of Penzance” Cast Impress During Outstanding Livestream Performance
A huge thank you to the “Pirates of Penzance” cast, tech crew, directors, musicians and volunteers for bringing the community together remotely for an outstanding livestream performance!
Allen-Stevenson’s production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance,” was performed under unusual circumstances this year. Given increasingly strong guidance from New York City public officials that organizations should avoid holding large gatherings, Allen-Stevenson reluctantly made the decision that the boys would perform to a livestream audience only, in lieu of a live audience.
Our cast and crew did not let this put an end to the performance that they worked so hard to prepare! The boys took to the stage with unparalleled enthusiasm.
In a fantastic show of support, our community joined together remotely, and faculty and staff who were in the building came down to support their students. At one point, around 270 people were watching the livestream to cheer on our boys and to make the best out of a unique situation.
