Rave Review for “The Frat Party”

The well-known Twin Cities theater blog Cherry and Spoon reviewed Sunday’s performance of The Frat Party. Here’s some of what they had to say:

A well-voiced cast of eight sings about college woes and joys, including needing money to buy beer, convincing their R.A. to let them have a party, avoiding campus security, drinking, and love. It’s quite amusing to watch this all play out as an opera. Each of the eight ensemble members get an aria and do well with it (one character even sings, “I haven’t had my aria yet”). Michael Burton has an everyman, or everydude, quality as Dan, the main orchestrater of the party, Amanda Weis has a strong voice as the young woman having her first drink…

Jennifer Zabelsky sings passionately about Chemistry, and Eric Peters is adorkably [sic] charming as the requisite nerd in love with Fiona (reminiscent of “Johanna“)…

…this is a fun, tongue-in-cheek, well-sung show, and a promising debut of a new-to-Minnesota opera company.

Now playing at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities’ Rarig Center for the Arts through Saturday, August 9th!
