Lt. Silas Huff, associate conductor, told the band that the son of the composer was present. The band applauded. Huff raised his baton. What followed was a rousing, jaunty, toe-tapping piece of superb march music. “Yeah!” Diaz thought, as he listened, “It’s really good.”.

The show is directed by Harriet’s son Joel Schlader, who lives in Alameda, Choreography is by Jon Gourdine, with music direction by Richard Vetterli and vocal direction by Kim Vetterli, “I love the whole thing,” said John Tichenor, who plays Hysterium (a slave to Senex and Domina) and divides his time between Piedmont and Los Angeles, “Once the story gets going, it’s a real wacky vaudeville type of farce involving mistaken identities, For instance, I dress up as an ingénue with a wig and dress tshirt mockup - flat lay shirt - black t shirt mockup - rustic wood background pink ballet skirt and ballet shoes and pretend to be a dead body, It all works out in the end, and it’s a perfectly delightful show.”..
