GLEEful! All-Singing, All-Spoofing, All-Heart

New musical starring a mix of kids and adults begins month-long run at the Depot
By Alison Rooney
In the great tradition of “let’s put on a show” comes GLEEful, the little show that could, and the little show that got bigger, quickly. GLEEful, which opens on Friday at the Depot Theatre, is this fall’s “Depot musical,” a time-honored autumn treat at the theater. It wasn’t always this fall’s musical, in fact it has a little of the “you’re going out an understudy and coming back a star” lore about it already. The fall musical is generally a production starring adults, occasionally with participation from younger members of the community. Last year’s gritty presentation of Threepenny Opera was just that.
