Green Eggs and Ham
- The Story: The persistent Sam-I-Am uses hard-sell techniques to push a plate of green eggs and ham on someone who’s very set in their ways.
- The Reception: The Dr. Seuss’s classic is one of the top five best-selling children’s books of all time.
- The Adaptation: Sam-I-Am and his target take to a stage decorated in potential places to enjoy the titular dish while the full orchestra provides the score.
- Stepping in for Sam-I-Am: Michael Boudewyns, who dresses all in green and hops around the room while finding potential places for culinary enjoyment
- The Target: Instead of the book’s Grouchy Guy, this adaptation, designed by Really Inventive Stuff, sees Sam-I-Am implore a Seussical soprano named Theodora Gieselevska (played by Kimberly Schroder) to expand her horizons.
What do you get when you combine 70 classical musicians, 150 singers, and 260 student musicians? A symphony with a little something for everyone. There are the frequent classical concerts, of course, such as Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, as well as the layered harmonies of the choral program. And in the Pops series, audiences hear symphonic arrangements of popular music, from horror-movie scores to the hits of Michael Jackson. Finally, the Youth Orchestra Program prepares youngsters for careers in the classical-music world by letting them play alongside the symphony. With such culturally omnivorous programming, it's no surprise the Richmond Symphony corrals over 200,000 audience members each year.
