Andrew Undershaft is a millionaire weapons manufacturer. His daughter, Barbara, is a Major in the Salvation Army. When the two of them are reunited after many years, what follows is a fascinating and uneasy debate about the best way to save a man’s soul—with bullets or bread, cannons or Christ. Filled with humor, pathos and some of Shaw’s most challenging ideas, this show is guaranteed to spark fierce post-show discussions.

Joseph McGrath’s performance is supported in part by a generous gift from Joan & Doug Cook.

Direction

David Morden (Director, Dialect Coach)

David Morden (Director) directed The Rogue’s productions of Ghosts, A Delicate Balance, The Goat (2008 Arizona Daily Star Mac Award), Six Characters in Search of an Author and Krapp’s Last Tape, Not I and Act Without Words. He has appeared with The Rogue Theatre as Rinieri in The Decameron, Stephano in The Tempest, Brabantio and Montano in Othello, Editor Webb in Our Town, in the ensembles of Animal Farm and Orlando, as Madame Pace in Six Characters in Search of an Author, The Pope in Red Noses, Yephikhov in The Cherry Orchard, The Man in the Silver Dress in the preshow to The Maids and Glaucus in Endymion. He has acted locally with Arizona Opera (The Pirates of Penzance, The Threepenny Opera, among others), Arizona Onstage Productions (Assassins), Actors Theatre (The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged)) and Green Thursday Theatre Project (Anger Box, Rain), of which he was a co-founder. David has also directed productions with Green Thursday, Oasis Chamber Opera, DreamerGirl Productions, and Arts for All.

Director’s Notes

I first saw this play when I was quite young; I remember seeing the movie version in high school, with the brilliant Wendy Hiller playing Barbara. When I was 24, I saw the stage version and it made an even stronger impression on me. Even now, I can remember the uneasiness I felt watching characters that I really liked saying things that I didn’t particularly like—or saying things that made perfect sense but didn’t fit with my world view, my “morality.” I often gauge whether a play is of any value by whether or not I’m still thinking about it the morning after I see the performance. Major Barbara is a play that I am still thinking about 26 years after the performance. The complexity of the discussion contained therein is breathtaking.

When I was offered the chance to direct this play, I already had vacation plans in place for the end of August. I readily changed those plans because I knew this show had too much to offer for me to pass it up. I was not disappointed by my choice. It has been a rare privilege to explore the skill and intelligence with which George Bernard Shaw crafted this play. More importantly, it has been a beautiful challenge to listen to the arguments of the characters each night in rehearsal and weigh them in my mind and test their validity. This play has expanded my conception of the world. It has allowed me to accept things that I previously considered unworthy of my respect and to reject ideas that are too easy or too pat. It has allowed me to look at my life in a more “whole-istic” way and has allowed me to better understand the views of others who don’t think like me. Perhaps I rhapsodize, but of all the plays of which I have been a part, either as actor or director, Major Barbara is one of the most powerful. I very much hope that you catch some of that power as you watch the play today. And, of course, I look forward to hearing what you discover in this play; what you think of Mr. Shaw’s arguments.

On a personal note, I would like to acknowledge the many brilliant partners I had in crafting this play—all of whom brought unique insights to each and every rehearsal. A director dreams of a production team like this one. I am forever grateful to each of them for their generosity and adventurous spirits.

Dedicated to Anne Morden, the greatest teacher of all.

Lieutenant Commander Lorelei Allison Conrad (Trumpet), became the Navy’s first woman selected to receive a commission as Bandmaster and Director of the Navy Band San Francisco. She became Associate Conductor of the United States Navy Band in Washington, DC, interim Music Program Liaison Officer for Chief of Information at the Pentagon, traveled around the world and conducted three performances with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra.  Lorelei’s final assignment with the U.S. Navy was as Director of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet Band, the Navy’s largest Fleet Band. Currently, she lives in Green Valley with her husband, Ray, conducts the Green Valley Concert Band, an eighty-piece ensemble comprised of players ranging from 50 to 97 years of age, and has begun a new career in nursing.

Lorelei Allison Conrad (Trumpet)
Ray Conrad (Trumpet)

Ray Conrad (Trumpet)  attended the Armed Forces School of Music in Anacostia, Virginia. Assigned to COMNAVAIRPAC Unit Band #186 in San Diego, California, Ray performed “People to People” concerts in Japan, Hong Kong, Guam, the Philippians, Wake Island, and Hawaii.

Ray remains active as a performer with the Tucson Concert Band, the Green Valley Concert Band, the Big Band Sounds, the Green Valley Stage Band, the Rhythm Gang, and the Bavarian Brass Band.

Rip Lowman (Tuba) played sousaphone at Duke University as an engineering student. He made it to the Orange Bowl, Orange Bowl parade and other Atlantic Coast Conference football venues in the marching band. During a long career as a Systems Engineer at IBM, Rip’s musical life was primarily piano playing for enjoyment. He has since rediscovered the joys of tuba. He plays with the Old Pueblo Brass Band, a British-style brass band in Tucson, Sonora Winds, a concert band, Cactus Brass, a social fun brass quintet and EuTuba, a tuba quartet consisting of two euphoniums and two tubas. As a diversion from tuba, Rip often plays one of his seven didgeridoos.

Rip Lowman (Tuba)
Marcia Molter (Horn)

Marcia Molter (Horn) began playing French horn in the seventh grade because it was the only available rental instrument at school. She won music lesson scholarships while in school, played in the Oregon All-State High School Band, the University of Oregon Summer Band Camp the Portland Junior Symphony. Putting aside the horn for 24 years while raising a family and working, she picked it up again in Seattle in 1993, playing with The Boeing Orchestra. She was a member of several community music groups in Seattle until she brought her horn to Tucson in 1999. Marcia now plays with the Arizona Symphonic Winds and Tucson Concert Band, the Old Pueblo Brass Band, a British-style brass band, and the 4th Cavalry/Old Arizona Brass Band, which plays authentic arrangements from the Civil War era through early 1900’s.  Marcia also plays piano and is currently employed as a software engineer.  Playing music preserves her sanity.

He attended Florida State University and marched at the 1994 FedEx Orange Bowl during the school’s first National Championship Game victory against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He later transferred to Ohio State University where, as a member of the O.S.U. Jazz Ensemble, he toured Europe and performed at the Montreaux and North Sea Jazz Festivals.  Glenn currently teaches in the Tucson Unified School District, performs as bass trombonist for the Tucson Civic Orchestra and is active with his church orchestra and worship band.

Music Director’s Notes

In 1878 Charles Fry and his three sons formed a brass quartet, played during outdoor meetings in Salisbury and immediately proved to be a success, not only calming rowdy, and sometimes, hostile crowds, but helping to promote the Salvationist's message of Jesus Christ as Savior. The Salvation Army's founder, William Booth, came to hear the quartet and started to use them in his own campaign. He recognized the power of music, even of a secular nature. He is said to have remarked, "Why should the Devil have all the good tunes?"

The paths of Booth and Shaw were destined to cross.

In the London of 1890, one might assume the words, “What is the use of the gospel of thrift to a man who had nothing to eat yesterday and has not three pence today to pay for his lodging tonight?” could have been written by Shaw, then music critic and political activist. So challenged In Darkest England The Way Out, a manifesto that declared allegedly Christian England was in no condition to compare itself favorably with the horror and degradation of central Africa. It argued salvation was not going to come by prayer but by drastic alteration of the social fabric.  

In actuality, Shaw would not get around to reading the publication until 1891 and its real author was the feisty “General” William Booth. Shaw, however, seems to have never forgotten a line of it. It’s no wonder the Salvation Army Band appears in Shaw’s play of 1905, Major Barbara, and therefore in our pre-show performance by The Del Pueblo Brass Quintet.

Each evening’s performance will be slightly different, selected from a longer list by our performers. Selections often reflect either the characteristic march quality of the traditional brass band of the period, such as Sousa’s Fairest of the Fair or Joplin’s Rosebud March, or they have a more religious tone, such as Just a Closer Walk with Thee or Amazing Grace, though not necessarily played in a traditional style. Shaw plays with irreverence, so will we.

The last theme heard prior to the start of the show will be Per te d’immenso giubilo from Lucia di Lammermoor byDonizetti. His heroine, Lucy, like Shaw’s Barbara, is expected to marry someone she’d rather not. In the opera, the music appears as everyone gathers for the wedding. Listen for the reference to the theme later in the play and enjoy!
