IVRT Presents VICTOR/VICTORIA in Claremont
Set in Paris in the 1930s, Victor/Victoria tells the story of talented singer Victoria Grant, down on her luck and out of a job, only to change her identity (and gender!) to become the toast of Paris as "Count Victor of Poland," a man who imitates a woman in the local cabaret. Amy Gillette will portray Victor/Victoria, the role made famous by Julie Andrews in the 1980 Blake Edwards movie of the same name. Ron Hastings plays the role of Toddy, played in the movie by Robert Preston. This musical won the IVRT audience poll and is being produced by IVRT for two nights and one matinee only, on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 27 and 28 at the Candlelight Pavilion in Claremont.
The IVRT Inland Valley Repertory Theater company is a nonprofit organization, modeled after Orange County's Tony award-winning South Coast Repertory and founded in 1990 by Frank and Donna Marie Minano. IVRT is making an impact almost 26 years later by presenting affordable, high quality productions of plays and musicals and fostering the talents of artists of all ages. IVRT began its collaboration with the Candlelight Pavilion in 2007, proclaiming "Wednesdays Just Got Dramatic" and paving the way for what has grown into extremely popular weekday offerings at the venue. No dinner is served at IVRT productions and reserved, cabaret-style seating is available.
