Forty-two Oberlin College alumni and students from the classes of 1954-2003 gathered in Hall Auditorium in Oberlin, Ohio to present a production of "Very Truly Yours, Gilbert and Sullivan," by Gayden Wren, '83

We put together the entire show in less than 2 days, having all had our parts long in advance. And while we didn't know each other before, we all knew G&S and people like each other.

It was a tremendous success. Over 1000 people came to our 3 performances and it renewed all of our dedication to G&S, fellowship, singing and the theatre. Thanks to everyone, especially Gayden for pulling it all together.
