Build sets

James Grace, a cast member of “The World Goes Round,” works with his daughter to build sets. The show opens tonight at Stowe Theatre on Main Street.

Stowe Theatre Guild’s first musical of the season opens Thursday, Aug. 18, with “The World Goes Round,” a musical revue filled with humor, drama and affairs of the heart.

Written by collaborators Kander and Ebb, it’s filled with upbeat tunes.

“There is a lot of joy and celebration of performance that went into this show, says director Alexa Kartschoke, “Many of our actors have not performed since before the shutdown.”

Something different from other shows that Stowe has done is that this cast has stepped in as the crew to build the sets and are also doing all lighting design and sound.

Kartschoke added, “This group of artists has put its all into making this show a reality.”

The production runs through Saturday, Sept. 3, Thursdays to Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturdays.
