Political Intrigue! Shenanigans! VHRP LIVE! closes its Fifth Season with the classic 1913 operetta Sweethearts, in which a handsome prince is about to take a throne, a lost princess is found, international politicians maneuver, and a pre-World War I #MeToo song about the  “Game of Love”  that will raise eyebrows. PLUS: “On Parade,” “Sweethearts,” “For Every Lover Must Meet His Fate,” “Jeannette and Her Little Wooden Shoes,” and “In the Convent They Never Taught Me That!” A Herbert love operetta at its best, respectfully revised by Alyce Mott. The New Victor Herbert Orchestra (NVHO) supports the company at this final show of the season.

This season’s company consists of Claire Leyden, Bray Wilkins, Sarah Caldwell Smith, Alexa Delvin, David Seatter, Joanie Brittingham, Drew Bolander, Vira Slywotzky, Tanya Roberts, Tom Carle, Jovanie Demetrie, Matthew Wages, Brian Kilday, JoAnna Geffert, Sue Case, Hannah Kurth, Colm Fitzmaurice, and Jonathan Fox Powers.
