The Prisoner of Zenda – August 1999

Year eight was a real stretch for SME by producing a new show by local playwright/composer Steve Brown. The show was based on a well-known novel that spawned a half-dozen films over the years. The musical was quite faithful to the story and produced several very entertaining moments and many fine melodies. There were also rousing dance numbers and a real sword fight. As expected, the turnout was weak, largely due to the unknown title.
