Hamilton College Choir Presents Grand Hotel: The Musical


The Hamilton College Choir will present its annual fully staged musical Feb. 4-6 in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center for the Performing Arts. Directed by G. Roberts Kolb and featuring a cast of Hamilton choir members, Grand Hotel will run Friday and Saturday, Feb. 4 and 5, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 6, at 2 p.m.


Set in an elegant Berlin hotel in 1928, Grand Hotel recounts the intersecting lives of eccentric hotel guests. The world is between wars, the stock market is booming, Berlin is the center of high life, and optimism rules the day.


Inspired by Viki Baum’s period novel, book writer/playwright Luther Davis (Kismet, Timbuktu!) collaborated once again with the prolific, distinguished composer-lyricist team Robert Wright and George Forrest (Kismet, Timbuktu!, Magdelena, The Anastasia Affaire). Together, they created a seamless musical that boasts an engaging, non-stop book and a powerful score that is sure to sweep the audience away with all of the lavishness of the 1920s.


The production features lighting and set design by William DiPaolo and choreography by Nancy Long. Students in the cast include Nathaniel Taylor '11 as Baron Felix Von Gaigern, Michael Breslin '13 as Otto Kringelein, Jacob Taylor '13  as Herman Preysinf, Andrew Nichols '14 as Colonel-Doctor Otternschlag, Allison McLaughlin '11 as Elizaveta Grushinskaya, Julia Wilber '11 as Flaemmchen, and Andrea Wrobel '13 as Raffaela.


Tickets for the performance are $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens, and $3 for students. All seating is general admission. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the box office at 859-4331or visit www.hamiltonpa.org.
