Peter Elliott, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver, has loved musical theatre for his whole life. At age 12 he appeared as Oliver Twist in a semi-professional production of Oliver! During his time as Cathedral Dean, Christ Church Cathedral has been the location of many musical theatre productions, including a memorable three night revue of the work of Stephen Sondheim September in the Cathedral with Sondheim, and Jubilation: 125 Years of Musical Theatre.
Nathan LeRud, Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, fell in love with musicals at age seven when taken to see a college production of Camelot. He memorized every note of the original cast recording and (as a boy soprano with freakish range) learned to sing all of Julie Andrews’ numbers. A double major in English and Theatre, favorite roles include Tevye in Fiddler, Pangloss in Candide, Mabel Swindle in Radio Gals and “Dean LeRud” in Trinity’s recently-produced spoof of The Book of Mormon, “The Book of Common Prayer.”
