The show is directed by Lynn Binstock who will be remembered in the area for her amusing production The Bat’s Revenge (Fledermaus) for Alternative Opera in 2008 for the grand opening of the Wetherspoons Opera House Pub. She then formed Unexpected Opera and mounted sell-out performances of The Barber of Savile Road and The Stag in 2009. She returned to Wetherspoons in 2010 with the Olympian Gods entering the Olympics and inventing beach volleyball!
