Performing & Fine Arts: Mock's Crest
Mission StatementMock's Crest is a semi professional company devoted to a yearly summer production of comic light opera, primarily the operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan, that combines professional singers and musicians with the students, faculty and staff in the Department of the Performing and Fine Arts at the University of Portland. The production company was originally created under the guidance of Dr. Roger Doyle in 1990 with the support of the theatre faculty as his production team. The goal of this organization is to bring quality musical theatre to the University’s campus, the local Mock's Crest neighborhood and the greater Portland area by remounting and reinterpreting these great works of music, and connecting the young performing artists at the University to the larger Portland music community.

Join us for an evening of fairies, love, and politics set in the mod-swinging early 60’s of London’s SoHo District. This year’s production brings an all-new setting for Gilbert and Sullivan’s “fairy” comedic opera, which satirizes the House of Peers and the English political system. Iolanthe revolves around the love of Strephon, who is half a mortal and half a fairy, and Phyllis, a lovely shepherdess, who is a ward of the Lord Chancellor of England. Strephon’s mother, Iolanthe, is a fairy and favorite of the Queen of the Fairies but has been banished because of her relationship with a mortal. Strephon and Phyllis want to get married but her request is refused by the Lord Chancellor and the peers, both because Strephon’s reputable “fairyness” and because they all want to marry Phyllis. When Phyllis sees Strephon speaking with his immortal and never-aging mother, she believes him to be unfaithful and sides with the peers. Will the House of Parliament and the Lord Chancellor allow the lovers to reconcile? Or will laws get in the way between Phyllis and Strephon?
