Rock On 2016 – Musical Theater Recap

This summer, Rock On partnered with Williamstown Theatre Festival and Berkshire Music School to offer students training and performing experiences in musical theater. Rock On provided the pit band for Williamstown Theatre Festival’s fantastic  production of Orpheus in the Berkshires, written by Lucy Thurber, directed by Laura Savia with musical direction by Jack Mitchell.   The band included Justin Geyer, John Kelly, Zev Jarrett, Samantha Keyes and  Cali Cybulski . Rock On alum and faculty member  Christine Bile starred as Orpheus. The show ran for 4 performances and was a smash-hit!

Week 2, RO and the Berkshire Music School launched OnStage Live! a musical theater  workshop taught by Sherri James Buxton, and  actress  Brielle Costello with accompanist Bob Shepherd. We had a blast!
