Posted on: Jan 15, 2020

Delano High School presents a free public performance of “I Will Go... I Will Go...” at 6:45 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23, in the Performing Arts Center. The production is written by Glen Berger and directed by Joe Lawrence, assisted by Melinda Miller and Sydney Decker, with sets built and designed by Mike Stoudt. 

The ensemble play tells the true story of H.F. Sullivan, the first American to swim the English Channel shortly after World War One. The story is narrated by a figure named Omni, played by Piper Eagle. The action takes place as Sullivan, played by John Lahlum, swims the channel. It also focuses on the memories of his former love Grace, played by Sophie Stevens. It is a dreamlike play that incorporates experimental drama, dance and vintage music from the era.

The ensemble also includes Emmett Anderson, Emma Rametta, Hunter Elwood, Justin May, Sydney Wuerger, Jake Stoudt, Emma Stanford, Annemarie Steinberg, Maya Rodriguez, Emily Barron, and Lila Ford. 

Following the public performance, the ensemble will enter Minnesota State High School League subsection competition on Saturday, Jan. 25, at Rogers High School.
