“Gilligan’s Island: The Musical,” based on the popular 1960’s TV show comedy featuring seven shipwrecked castaways, will be performed in the Glen Oaks Nora Hagen Theatre May 13 – 15. The show is presented by the Sturgis Civic Players, in partnership with Glen Oaks Community College in three performances, Fri., May 13 at 7:30 p.m.; Sat., May 14 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sun., May 15 at 2 p.m.
The show is co-directed by Michele Kelley, of Sturgis, and Mary Sutter, of White Pigeon. The cast includes local talents: Kenton Kelley as the Skipper; Colin Eastman as Gilligan; Amanda Camburn as Mary Ann; Laura Kemp as Ginger; Ryan Davis as the Professor, Uriah Geroux and Michelle Klar as Thurston Howell III and his wife, Lovey Howell; and Hannah Heitger and Ana Miller guest starring as Aliens.
“We were well into practices and staging for this show when the pandemic hit in March of 2020,” said Michele Kelley, co-director. “We tried a second time last fall and had to cancel last minute due to a COVID spike, so we are thinking the third time will be a charm. Although some of the character roles have changed over the course of the past two years, we are excited to bring you a great show with a highly seasoned cast as many of the performers have appeared in numerous musicals in the area over the years.”
