Help us with the cost of costumes and sets for this great operetta!

About the Project

The Victorian Lyric Opera Company's production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Patience opens on June 8, 2018!  We have assembled a great cast, sets and costumes for this operetta that will be fully staged, accompanied by a 30 piece orchestra.  Please help us and show your support by helping defray the costs we've incurred for sets and costumes.  

We are hoping to raise $10,000 to defray our production costs for Patience.  Sets and costumes will cost approximately $8000, and props, equipment rental, production supplies and orchestra expenses push our costs up to $10,000 for this show. Your tax deductible donations toward this effort will be greatly appreciated!

Patience is a hilarious spoof of the Aesthetic movement of the 1880s in Great Britain. Two rival poets are being followed everywhere by twenty lovesick maidens, while the dragoon soldiers these women had been engaged to previously are trying to win them back, without much success.  The poets are madly in love with Patience, a milkmaid, who doesn't seem to care much about the lofty ideals of the aesthetic movement.

Patience will be presented at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre in Rockville, Maryland. Friday and Saturday evening performances will be June 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 8 pm; Sunday matinees are June 10 and 17 at 2 pm.  The theatre is at 603 Edmonston Drive in Rockville, Maryland, in Rockville's Civic Center Park. 

The mission of the Victorian Lyric Opera Company is to provide high quality performances of light operatic works, providing educational and performance opportunities for our community.
