Congratulations to Jonathan Mitchell!

We would like to recognize Jonathan Mitchell, 5th grader at SCA, who has been announced as playing the lead role of Amahl in the opera Amahl and the Night Visitors.

Amahl and the Night Visitors is a 20th-century opera by composer Gian Carlo Menotti, about a pauper shepherd boy who meets the Three Kings on their way to Bethlehem to see the newborn Christ.

The Spartanburg Repertory Company will present this opera the weekend before Thanksgiving, with shows on November 21, 22, and 23.  Performance times and location will be announced closer to the date.

Auditions open to the public were held on September 2 and 4.  The Repertory Company intends to double-cast the two lead roles, Amahl and the Mother, with one set of performers for the Friday evening and Sunday afternoon performances, and another set for the Saturday evening performance.  As of now, the second ‘Amahl’ has not yet been announced.  

Congratulations Jonathan!
