Six women and six men were cast in this year’s musical production by America’s oldest theatrical organization. The student-produced burlesque show began this month.
The troupe has been putting on annual shows since 1844 but previously relied on all-male casts to play both male and female roles.
Women have long participated behind the scenes, but last year the group announced it would begin casting women after facing pressure from students and alumni.
In the current show, men have still been cast in some female roles while women have been cast in some male roles.
The group is now performing its show in Cambridge before taking it to New York and Bermuda in March.
Bowen RCMP is asking for help identifying a male suspected of using a stolen credit card.
Cpl. Paulo Arreaga said that the credit card was reported stolen from a vehicle in January.
“He is described as a Caucasian male, 6’ to 6‘2, medium build, 30 to 40 years old, grey hoody, blue plaid lumber jacket, black pants, grey toque, and carrying a black back pack,” said Arreaga. “We remind everyone to lock their vehicles and not leave any valuables inside.”
