Blue Hill Troupe
Long-Lost Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Gets New Score by Thomas Z. Shepard
NEW YORK, May 6, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- On June 16, the award-winning Blue Hill Troupe (http://www.bht.org) will present the concert premiere of a brand new version of Thespis, or The Gods Grown Old, Gilbert and Sullivan's long-lost burlesque about a troupe of hapless actors who trade places with the world-weary gods.
