Millegan and Noll to Headline 'Pirates' in OR, Dec. 30-31

Eric Millegan and Christiane Noll have been cast as Frederic and Mabel in Eugene Opera's production of The Pirates of Penzance. Performances of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta will be held on December 30th and 31st at the Hult Center's Silva Concert Hall in Eugene, Oregon.

The Pirates of Penzance concerns young Frederic, who vows to scourge the seas of pirates to be with the girl he loves--despite having been apprenticed to a buccaneer himself.

Millegan, who currently plays Zack Addy in the FOX television series "Bones," grew up in Springfield, Oregon and began his theater career as a shepherd boy in the chorus of Amahl and the Night Vistors with Eugene Opera in 1981. He went on to appear in Eugene Opera productions of Madame Butterfly, La Boheme, Carmen, and Hansel & Gretel. His New York theater credits include the Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, the Encores! presentation of Hair at City Center, and the New York premiere of Dead Man Walking at Lincoln Center. He has played lead roles in workshops of The Wayside Inn (directed by Jason Moore), Uncle Broadway, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil's Mask and the current Off-Broadway hits Altar Boyz and Spring Awakening. At the Paper Mill Playhouse, he starred as Harold opposite Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons' Maude in the world premiere of Tom Jones and Joseph Thalken's Harold & Maude: The Musical.

Noll most recently starred in the York Theatre Company's A Fine and Private Place directed by Gabriel Barre. She has appeared in the Broadway productions of It Ain't Nothin But the Blues and Jekyll & Hyde and the national touring production of Urinetown, as well as in the Broadway-bound production of The Mambo Kings. She played Kathie in The Student Prince at the Paper Mill Playhouse and Marianne in The New Moon at Encores!. She also played Valencienne in The National Opera's production of The Merry Widow with Placido Domingo. She supplied the voice for Anna in the animated film version of The King & I.

According to its website, "Built by the citizens of Eugene, the Hult Center has quite an impressive history. Since its grand opening in 1982, the Hult Center has been charming audiences and popular performers alike with its stunning architectural and acoustical features. From the towering glass lobby, to the massive 2,500 seat Silva Concert Hall with its basket weave ceiling, to the intimate 500-seat Soreng Theater with its intriguing asymmetrical design, to the divine Jacobs Gallery downstairs, the Hult Center is truly a great arts facility."

Tickets will soon be onsale at EugeneOpera.com and HultCenter.org.
