This charming adaptation of the classic tale spins Gulliver through the lands of Lilliput and beyond. As timely today as it was when written, Gulliver’s Travels charts the human spirit through all its peaks and valleys as Gulliver searches for truth, compassion, and a way of life he can believe in.
“Staging Gulliver’s Travels presents many exciting production challenges,” says director John Hill. “There are ships, a storm at sea, a flying city, talking horses, a giant rat; rather than use puppets, as the script suggests to indicate differences in scale, the production will employ projections, light and sound effects, and the most powerful tools of all in the theater’s repertoire: the actors’ and audiences’ imagination. Music, both live and recorded, will add to the baroque-era feel. Musical episodes and interludes will provide structure and continuity as well as serving to differentiate the various fantastic worlds of Gulliver’s Travels.”
The Gulliver’s Travels ensemble features Alex Cantu, Maggie Lareau, Kaeli Sikkenga, and Megan Syer as Gulliver. Playing multiple roles are Maximilian Ascani, Amalia Chappel-Lakin, Emma Chen, Savanna Cowley, Malcolm Elliot, Evan Eschenburg, Drew Flattery, Amelia Hatcher-Kay, Jeremy Klooster, Ryan Klooster, Henry Lee, Marion Lee, Renee Lee, Megan Lyons, Diamond McCaa, Alaina Peller-Kosbar, and Tabitha Walkowiak.***
