The members of the English-speaking community of Jerusalem and beyond, especially those with a penchant for witty musical material, are in for a treat next week. The Hirsch Theatre of Beit Shmuel will host the latest production of the Encore! Educational Theatre Company, a typically professionally crafted rendition of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe (December 30 to January 7).The cast features a number of students of the Rubin Academy of Music and Dance of the Hebrew University, including Encore first-timers such as Amit Hemo in the title role, Lior Inbar as the young shepherd swain Strephon, and bass-baritone Steven Timoner in the role of Private Willis. The roster also features 29-year-old Chicago- born Jerusalemite baritone Hanan Leberman, who is on the cusp of developing a glittering international career.
