Upper School Theater Presents Jane Eyre
Columbus School for Girls Upper School Theater presents Jane Eyre, A Musical Drama with music and lyrics by Paul Gordon, Book and additional Lyrics by John Caird on Thursday, March 7, Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9.
Jane Eyre, A Musical Drama is an enlightened love story based on the well-known and widely loved novel by Charlotte Bronte. The 2001 Tony nominated show revolves around the secrets, hopes, and passions of Jane, a lowly governess, and Edward Rochester, her upper class employer. Beginning life as an unwanted orphan and later becoming governess to Mr. Rochester's ward at Thornfield Hall, Jane breaks the custom and convention of Victorian feminine life to find the happiness she deserves. But her hopes for a better life are tested as the mysterious truth is revealed about Mr. Rochester's past.
An orchestra, comprised of CSG students, boys from local schools, and three professional musicians deliver the gorgeous score that is both passionate and transporting. The cast of 23 also includes sophomore Sydney Anderson as Jane, local actor Cedric Gegel as Rochester, a CSG third grade student, and boys from local high schools. All are invited to come and be transported to a gothic romantic time!
The production will be performed in the Agnes Jeffrey Shedd Theater at Columbus School for Girls March 7th and 8th at 7:30 p.m. and March 9 at 2:00 p.m.
