The Christendom College Players will perform P.G. Wodehouse’s famed “Right Ho, Jeeves!” from November 13-15. For the first time, the show will be livestreamed, making it possible for audiences around the country to attend.
Christendom’s production of “Right Ho, Jeeves!” is an adaptation of Wodehouse’s second full-length novel featuring the popular characters Jeeves and Bertie Wooster. Previously adapted for television and radio in Great Britain, the theatrical production is once again directed by alumna Elizabeth Foeckler, who also directed An Evening of Shakespeare, Anything Goes, and 12 Angry Men. She is joined by alumna Anne Sullivan for the first time, who is serving as co-director.
After the Christendom Players’ production of My Fair Lady was cancelled in the spring due to COVID-19, Foeckler and Sullivan worked hard to make a production possible for Christendom students this fall. After weeks of practices, the team is excited to present a new production to the college.
While the performances are closed to only students, faculty and staff, the team wanted families of the actors and other interested guests to still be able to attend the show virtually. As a result, the opening night performance on Friday, November 13, will be livestreamed on Christendom’s YouTube page, making it possible for audiences to enjoy the show from the comfort of home.
The show will be performed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8:00 pm EST, with Friday and Sunday’s shows reserved for the student body. Saturday evening’s performance is reserved for staff, faculty, and their families.
Although Christendom College does not offer a performing arts major, many students include acting as part of their extra-curricular pursuits during college. The resulting showcase of talent – both musical and theatrical – draw in students across all of the disciplines.
