The Young Victorian Theatre Company began in 1971 as an enthusiastic group of Gilman students and has evolved into an acclaimed and full-fledged performing arts organization. Their professional-caliber productions attract a wide range of promising young talent and accomplished performers. Every summer, Young Vic presents an entertaining and timeless Gilbert & Sullivan show.
For the first 18 years Young Vic performed in Alumni Auditorium on the Gilman campus, moving to Bryn Mawr School in 1989. Now the Company is returning to its roots. This summer, on July 14, 18, and 21, YVTC will perform “From London to Baltimore: A Salute to Gilbert & Sullivan” on Gilman’s campus.
“I am particularly thankful that Gilman has given us an opportunity to come home as we approach our landmark 50th anniversary season,” said Young Vic General Manager Brian Goodman, Gilman Class of ‘75. In his 40+ years as GM of Young Vic, he has overseen the theatre's development from a semi-professional, partly-student organization to a fully independent company, complete with a permanent endowment and independent Board of Directors.
Brian’s devotion to Young Vic is even more impressive when one considers that this is his “side job.” By day, he is a trial lawyer and principal at Kramon & Graham PA, where he specializes in products liability defense work, general liability work and insurance law.
Through the years, many Gilman alumni, including Charles Duff ’71 and Michael Blum ‘71, have been involved with the company. Currently R. Alan Macksey, Jr. ‘80 sits on the YVTC board.
