The Masque


Theatre and Performance Studies


Producer's Corner
Amy L. Nickerson

This year The Masque of La Salle University tackled an obstacle far more difficult than surmounting the greatest of musical productions (although we did that too!). The obstacle to which I am referring is - money. Through the dedication and determination of our technical crew in their thrift, Executive Board in their creative thinking, and cast in their efforts to promote ad sales, we have created a stellar production. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who has helped us turn one dollar into two. Our organization easily embraced the role of underdog. No matter the test - The Masque of La Salle is here to stay.

To start off our 2006-2007 season we once again invited back Philadelphia veteran Director, Tom Reing of lnis Nua Theatre, to guide us through Jekyll & Hyde. Interviews this summer led to our discovery of Musical Director, Michael Borton, who has whipped our cast into shape for this vocally demanding show. A production of this size, both in cast, set, musical accompaniment, and difficulty has not come to the Dan Rodden Theatre in many years. It's also biting, and dark - moving in the opposite direction of last Season's productions.

We hope you enjoy our interpretation of Jekyll & Hyde - it's a different sort of show to begin with - but as with all our shows, there's always that extra flair, or personality that shines through and screams, "Murder!" I mean, "Masque."

... Thought you'd get away without any cheese did you? Tis tradition!
