Converse College and The Spartanburg Repertory Company are pleased to announce the presentation of “Lying to the Sea Gypsy” written by Converse senior Kiya Heartwood, on January 28-30 in Hazel B. Abbott Theatre. “Lying to the Sea Gypsy” is a musical tale of a young girl and her adventures on the high seas with pirates. The girl wants to be a pirate more than anything, but discovers that getting what you want isn’t always exactly what you expect. Attendees should be prepared to sing and dance and to meet a witch, a few brave and funny people and a few pleasant and not so pleasant pirates.
This is a show for all ages, with special interest for the younger audience. The production, sponsored in part by a Converse College Creative Collaboration grant, is directed by Associate Professor of Voice, Susan Lyle and Miriam Davidson. Technical design is by Assistant Professor of Theatre, Brent Glenn.
