NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:
Hats off to the Cimarron Opera for its keen and rousing performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Ruddigore.” Singing, comic acting, orchestra — all were top-drawer. Special kudos to Cassandra Bates as a truly mad Mad Margaret and Patrick Meirick as an arch Despard Murgatroyd. Also, in the pit, to hornist Logan Fish and trumpeter Jeff Curtain. Norman is lucky to have this dedicated and polished troupe.
