Trial By Jury


Trial By Jury

"The Omer Light Opera Group" as LOGON was then called, was formed by Dr. Ed Spitz in order to fulfill his childhood dream of playing the Judge in Gilbert and Sullivan's "Trial by Jury". Having assembled a group of local friends who loved to sing and perform, the 45 minute long show was performed with piano accompaniment at the Omer Cultural Center in June 1981. The 24 strong cast was directed by Burt Routman, conducted by David Waldmann and choreographed by Oded Susskind. The stage manager was Ed's wife Sheila assisted by their son, Billy.
The show was enthusiastically received by the audience, much to the surprise of the local authorities.
