Trial by Jury
A Gilbert and Sullivan Opera
Directed by Chris Nollet
Trial by Jury is a hilarious musical spoof on the British judicial system. Angelina, jilted by her lover Edwin, has taken him to court for breach of promise. The jury has been coached by the Court to side with her, in order to be "fair and impartial." Edwin, the defendant, offers every legal argument he can, including an offer to marry both Angelina and his new lover. The judge, who has reached his high office by marrying a rich attorney's daughter, doesn't know the difference between "bigamy" and "burglaree." Who will win this high-stakes trial of love? And will the Usher ever be successful in getting "Silence in court?" Come see Trial by Jury and find out!
And, as a special added bonus, Rubber Chicken Theater will open the show with the Special Educational Feature: How to Recognize a Gilbert and Sullivan Opera!, hosted by a Super Secret Celebrity Guest.
