Several Erskine alumni will join other talented singers on the stage of the Gunter Theatre at the Peace Center in Greenville beginning July 31 as members of the chorus in the Glow Lyric Theatre production of Puccini’s La Bohème.

College graduates Elizabeth De Vault ’11 and Claire Parnell Duffle ’08, sopranos, Aimee Dumouchel Gans ’12, alto, and Gil Snowden ’13, bass, as well as seminary alumnus Chip Mays ’03, tenor, will perform in the chorus of the popular opera. Each is assigned a role, with De Vault playing a teacher, Duffle portraying a mother, Gans and Snowden as vendors, and Mays as a homeless man.

Evening performances of La Bohème will be offered at 8 p.m. July 31 and August 7. Afternoon performances are set for 2 p.m. August 3 and 9. All performances are in the Gunter Theatre.

As part of its Glow Summer Festival Season and during the same weeks as its staging of La Bohème, the Glow Lyric Theatre will also present Jonathan Larson’s Rent, a re-adaptation of Henri Murger’s Scènes de la vie de Bohème, the novel from which Puccini’s opera is adapted.
