“Violet” Set to Close SLOC’s 95th Season
Be prepared to fall in love with Schenectady Light Opera Company’s closing production of Violet, directed and choreographed by TJ Collins. The story follows the titular character as she travels cross-country to find the physical healing of a televangelist in the mid-60s. The real journey goes inward, as Violet finds healing from her past and discovers the ability to be loved. Collins asks his audience to explore their own journeys in their lives. “I hope this journey finds you on your own path, and inspires you to be brave, and feel loved.”
Violet stars Allie Mantica as the title character. Allie is joined by SLOC newcomers Zach Kaiser (Flick), Sam Evans (Monty), Rylie Huang (Young Vi) and SLOC veteran, Stephen Foust, as Father. The show’s ensemble is composed of six multi-talented individuals, playing various roles.
Violet is performed through the collaborative effort of Music Director James W. Alexander, Producer and Stage Manager Michaela Torres, and Assistant Producer Robb Gutierrez-Collins.
Performances are: May 6, 7, 12, 13, and 14 at 8pm and May 8 and 15 at 2pm at Schenectady Light Opera Company, 427 Franklin Street, Schenectady. Ticket prices range from $25 to $32. For tickets and information, call 518-730-7370 or visit tickets.sloctheater.org.
