Lord Byron Lives!

Fall Event 2009
About the Production
Stockton in Athens


After wrapping up our Spring Event earlier this year and reflecting on the marvellous performance by Yannis Simonides as the Greek general Makriyannis, it seemed as though a follow-up event for the fall might be difficult as Mr. Simonides is a difficult act to follow). 

When we learned that our drama department and our own Patrick Judd (one of several students representing Stockton in Greece in 2009) would be performing in Athens at an event commemorating the 200th anniversary of Byron's arrival in Greece, we pinned our hopes on his agreeing to reprise his performance back in the US.  The response was swift and affirmative.

So, it is with great pleasure that we announce our 2009 Fall Event: "Greece Holds  My Heart and Soul: Byron's Letters from Greece."  To add to that, we are additionally thrilled to have - at the same event- the Hellenic Dancers of New Jersey who will be performing dances from various regions of Greece. 

Press releases, images from the event in Greece and event information can be found in these pages.  If we can track them down, we might even get an interview with some of the key people of this production.  Until then, enjoy the pages and, as always, please feel free to contact us at for additional event information and tickets.
